Practice as Refuge, Not Escape

Sometimes our motivation to practice is strongest when we feel overwhelmed, directionless and ungrounded.  Although yoga is meant to be a path toward awakening, we may find that we are using practice to escape from reality. In this workshop, Cyndi offers Three Tenets and Four Guidelines, which we will explore through lecture, discussion, pranayama, asana and restorative practices, enabling you to transform stress, fear and confusion into confidence, security and kindness; to feel grounded even when your world is upside down.

Mindfulness of Body

Mindfulness of Body is an integrated mind-breath-body training practice which teaches us how to fall back into the simplicity of each moment.  Cyndi will unfold the traditional layers of this powerful Buddhist practice through mini-talks on Sati or Mindfulness, Establishing Presence of Mind, Contemplating Externally, Impermanence, and Insight.  We will embody each layer through breath, posture, long holds, creative sequencing and three variations of savasana, allowing our awareness to strengthen with every step.

Toggling toward Resiliency

By engaging in just one activity at a time, yoga and Buddhist practices teach us how to be fully present. However, our body tells us that it gets strong, clear, and nimble when we alternate our activity on a regular basis. This class will integrate single-tasking with our innate need for variety by toggling between strong movement, stillness, upside down play, quiet self-adjustments, fun, bright sequences — and some surprises, too!
