Calming the Mind and Body
We often think of yoga as physical exercises, forgetting that it also serves to clear the mind and calm emotions. In this workshop, we’ll spend the day learning LifeForce Yoga practices you won’t find in regular yoga classes. These include meditative self-inquiry and mood-balancing Yoga Nidra, which promotes relaxation through a state of deep stillness. You’ll learn the uplifting “Say Yes to Your Self” guided imagery practice and practice joint warm-ups and gentle yoga stretching. By the end, you’ll have refreshed your capacity for openness and connection in a community of practitioners. Use this day to prepare for the fullness of the Symposium ahead and discover:
- Simple poses, breathing exercises, and methods of meditative self-inquiry
- Mood-balancing relaxation techniques and uplifting guided imagery practices
- How to achieve a deep sense of calm, purpose, and joyful receptivity
