The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.
As yogis, our actions honor what is sacred. Our practice is guided by the five niyamas of Patanjali, actions to purify body, cultivate contentment, invoke discipline, invite self- study, and surrender desire.
In every 24-hour cycle we experience an enlivening sunrise and expressive moon cycle. These are the bookends planet Earth relies on to awaken, grow, rest, and renew—and we rely on them too! We can support the steadiness of our lives through morning and evening practices that become sacred rituals. Remember, a ritual need not take a lot of time; what makes it sacred is repetition and intention.
This workshop will provide the Ayurvedic and yogic theories and practice to align you with the forces that govern well-being. Specific mudras, mantras, asana, and pranayama for morning and evening will be introduced. Participants will receive a customized ritual to fit their lifestyle and ultimately align them with the forces of life. Remember, a ritual need not take a lot of time, what makes it sacred is repetition and intention.
Recommended props: blocks and a blanket
