Yoga Philosophy1
Jul 7, 2020 - Jul 17, 2020
 
Heartwood's Philosophy 1 course explores the 196 yoga sutras that encompass the foundation of yoga philosophy. The Yoga Sutra, widely regarded as the authoritative text on yoga, is a collection of aphorisms, outlining the eight limbs of yoga. These threads (as sutra translates from Sanskrit) of wisdom offer guidelines for living a meaningful and purposeful life.
Designed for students who have a basic understanding of the yamas and niyamas and are ready to dive into the core teachings of yoga beyond the physical practice, our lessons include discussion, exercises and lectures to help students contemplate the meanings and deeper dimensions of yoga's powerful teachings. In this course we also work on an expressive art project to help process the teachings and reflect deeper upon the sutras and the many levels of application we can invite into our lives today.

This course is open to anyone interested in yoga philosophy, but does offer CEU's for yoga teachers seeking ongoing studies. Philosophy 1 is a required unit for the Heartwood RYT-300 program and it is a prerequisite for our upcoming IAYT yoga therapy 800 hour program. This course is a prerequisite for sequential yoga philosophy studies. Philosophy 2 will be offered in the spring and includes 20 hours focused on the Bhagavad Gita. Philosophy 3 is devoted to the Upanishads and the Dhammapada. These three courses combine to establish a foundation of understanding of yoga as a system of integration of mind, body and spirit.

Mala Making Workshop
Jul 25, 2020 - Jul 25, 2020
 

A mala is a special string of 108 beads traditionally used in meditation to count mantras. When you string our own mala, you have the opportunity to place beautiful intentions into the beads and stones so the mala can be worn as a reminder of the affirmations you want to carry with you. In this class, you will learn more about the significance of the 108 beads in a mala, the specific uses of various stones for intention setting, and how to meditate with the mala you create. Come ready to learn, be creative, and walk away with a beautiful meditation tool and representation of your intentions. Class fee includes all supplies.
