Advanced Yoga instruction

Asana ~ Breathwork ~ Meditation

3 Hour sessions



Meditation practice is a pathway to unlocking and/or opening the dormant mental faculties that bring about logical thinking, common sense and compassion or caring.
During the training sessions you will be taught
1. Opening stretches.
2. Three part yogic breathing.
3. Candle meditation.
4. Constructive use of the imagination using the Shruti box and the colors of the rainbow.
5. Use of the hands to draw attention to the nervous system.
6. Sound vibrations using the Shruti box.
7. How to better control your attention.
The body does not need to be perfectly still for the mind to be at ease.
8. Deep trance practice using Yoga Nidra. 9. You will be taught the Rites of Rejuvenation ~ sometimes referred to as the Fountain of Youth.
10. A special Yoga breathing which better prepares you for the meditation experience
11. How long to practice daily and how to know the difference between concentration and Meditation.

The practice ( once learned ) should last from 5 minutes up to 20 minutes once you have completed the training.
It could be said that concentration is the the driveway leading to the palace and that meditation is being in the palace. Meditation is not like being un~ conscious rather it is a state of super~conciousness that can be earmarked by a timeless state of mind.
The practices will be held Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays as a three day series by Appointment
At the end of the third session each participant will be initiated with a mantra that will be used as the pathway to the Meditation experience .
Each session lasts about 75 to 90 minutes.
