Letting Go Yoga Nidra

With Kim Eisner. Sat, Oct 29, 2016 at 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm. You are what your deep driving desire is. As is your desire, so is your will. As is your will, so is your thought. As is your thought, so is your word. As is your word, so is your deed. As is your deed, so is your destiny. The word "nidra" means sleep, but this is not ordinary sleep. This is yogic sleep, entering a profound state of relaxation in which you are able to descend into the deepest levels of consciousness and unlock your inner strengths. Change negative habits and thoughts into positive, life-affirming behaviors and transform your life. Tap into your own creative potential and discover how to meet life's challenges with enthusiasm and courage. Yoga Nidra holds the key. This class is our annual class, held near Halloween each year, on the theme of Death - the Final Definitive Journey. Many past participants have found this yoga nidra to be a powerful and life-changing spiritual experience. This class is a one-hour guided relaxation. No yoga experience is needed. The class begins with a soothing series of easy yoga postures that prepare the body for deep relaxation. We recommend you bring an ordinary bed pillow and a blanket or something warm to cover with during relaxation. Ware loose or stretchy clothes appropriate for yoga practice.

Yoga Sutras - Chapters 1-2

With Laura Spaulding. Next held on Thu, Sep 22, 2016 at 5:30 pm - 6:45 pm. This enrollment runs from Thu Sep 8, 2016 - Thu Dec 29, 2016. Yoga Sutras of Patanjali were composed approximately 2400 years ago and brilliantly and succinctly summarize the yoga system in a text of 196 aphorisms (sutras). Patanjali's work has been the subject of numerous scholarly commentaries. Although it fell into obscurity for several centuries it was resurrected by Western Sanskrit scholars in the 19th century. Today it is widely studied as one of the earliest and most authoritative texts of yoga. Study of the Yoga Sutras is recommended in both the Ashtanga and Iyengar systems. This class will chant, read and discuss the meaning of the Sutras and how they are relevant and helpful for one's own yoga practice. No previous knowledge of the Yoga Sutras is needed for the class. Enrollment is free and open to all Yoga East students. Series of 16 classes: 20 YA 300/500 YPLE Hours.
