June 8, 9 & 10, 2019
It is an honor to have Eddie Stern in our studio.
ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME. No prior experince with yoga required.
SAT. JUNE 8th, 4:00 – 6:00 pm:
Lecture | Stillness, Feeling, Acting and Thinking
In this lecture Eddie will discuss the four paths of yoga that represent the four basic ways that we interact with the world. Yoga at its core is the practice of knowing who we are on a deep level. The access we have to that inner knowledge gets cloudy because our minds are filled with thoughts, desires, confusion, conflict and regrets. Yoga provides remedies for all of these mental difficulties, which are reflected through the four paths, or modes, of yoga. This class will include chanting, pranayama, and lecture.
SUN. JUNE 9th, 6:00 – 8:00 pm:
Workshop | Yoga Therapy & Resonance Breathing: Down-regulating Inflammation
We begin this evening class with chanting of the Ganesha bija mantra, followed by a discussion on yoga therapy and the different classifications of breathing practices. We will follow that with some simple yoga therapy postures that are good for calming the nervous system and preparing you for meditation practices.
In this class we will also practice a special type of breathing practice called Resonance Breathing. Within our body, resonance occurs when our heart rate, the changes of our heart rate, our blood pressure, and brainwaves all come together in a coherent signaling pattern. When this occurs, several amazing things happen: our emotional and physiological resilience increase; inflammation re- duces; cardiovascular health improves; stress reduces; sleep improves; the nervous system becomes increasingly well balanced. This class will give you a direct experience of resonance breathing and the heart-brainwave coherence.
MON. JUNE 10th, 6:00 – 8:00 pm:
Book Signing | “One Simple Thing”
Yoga is reputed to improve our physical and mental health, and to help us become more productive at work, more caring in relationships, and a more responsible contributor to society and inhabitant on this planet. If yoga does accomplish all that—and most practitioners will swear it’s true—how exactly does it do it?
Puja Ritual | Ganesh Ceremony
Ganesh is the Lord of new beginnings, wisdom, and obstacles. During this Hindu ritual we invoke the energy of Ganesh that dwells within us, who, like an elephant in the forest, is filled with strength, discrimination, kindness, wisdom and devotion. His elephant head and human body symbolizes transcending the material world and joining with our spiritual nature.
* Please wear clean, festive clothing, and bring fresh fruits, nuts, or flowers, which we will offer to Ganesh during the ritual.
