In this three-hour master class, we will look at yoga practice as a way to explore the Buddhist methods of mindfulness and compassion. You can expect direct lineage meditation instruction, an asana class with creative sequencing and transition work, and a gradual transition into restorative yoga and pranayama to downregulate and leave you with a sense of integration. There will be plenty of time to ask questions, explore how things fit together, and discover insights to add to your own yoga practice, teaching practice, and life.
You will need two blocks, a blanket (or thick towel), and a mat for the yoga practice and a chair or cushion for meditation practice.
