Silent Meditation led by a practiced trainer in the method of Heartfulness Meditation. We usually sit for 30 to 45 mintues and there may be questions or discusssion for the last part of the hour. Cushions, blankets or chairs are provided. There is also a yoga class from 8 am to 8:50 am, preceeding the meditation. If you would like, you can do both back-to-back. The meditation and the yoga class are both by donation. All are welcome.
Synchronize with the rhythm of nature and shift beautifully from the season of rest and reflection to the season of rebirth. This practice will include:
- a guided meditation to induce Yoga Nidra (yogic “sleep”)
- Pranayama (breathing exercises)
- the incorporation of Mudras (hand gestures)
Through regular practice of Yoga Nidra, we can counteract the effects of stress and hyperactivity in the frontal cortex by accessing different parts of the brain that can help us regulate interoceptive awareness, supporting a harmonious, restorative state, and a greater balance between the different layers of body and mind.
Sliding scale, pay what you can: $15, $20, or $25. Facilitated by Danny Lunce
Using a combination of research-based approaches and gentle yoga, we will explore the ways yoga, stretching, movement, and breathing techniques can support the lymphatic system and general wellness. This first session has been designed with breast cancer survivors in mind, but is suitable for anyone interested in lymphatic flow. We will also touch on the use of affirmations, guided visualization, mindfulness, restorative yoga, and other related topics to enhance your learning experience.
$10 for a single class, $40 for all 5, free for The Yoga Place & Yoga Central Staff.
Indian Raga: Coloring the Mind and Spirit.
Kolkata Indian Violinist Rupam Ghosh and local tabla percussionist Joe Culley will be performing a full Hindustani Classical Music Raga for inner peace and transcendence. A raga embodies nature's cyclical aspects of time, by coloring the mind with ancient Indian melodies and rhythms.
The science and practice of yoga is framed in Sanskrit words and verses. Learning Sanskrit basics and pronunciation is helpful for any student or teacher of yoga. Learning some Sanskrit helps us make the cultural shift that leads to a deeper understanding of yoga philosophy. Many terms in yoga have no accurate English equivalents. We can step deeper into the world of yoga even with a brief foray into Sanskrit. Please join us for this class with Sanskrit enthusiast Rhonda Kuster, who has been teaching Sanskrit for groups ranging from New York to Florida.
April 13, at Yoga Central, 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
$55, or $45 early bird before April 1st. (free for YTT students)
