Manasa Yoga Workshop for Rejuvenation and Healing: Sunday 19th June 2011

Manasa Yoga Workshop for Rejuvenation & Healing

How are you living your life?
Are you being drained by life instead of being empowered?
Does each day present itself as an opportunity for transformation or simple survival; do you live to work, or work to live?
Winter is the season of rejuvenation and nurturing. This is represented by the water element (kidney/bladder) and associated with our deepest source of chi or energy.

As a result of stress, fear, mental exhaustion (obsessive thoughts) and lack of rest, our kidney energy becomes depleted, ultimately resulting in disease.

This workshop will consist of 4 hours of:

• Rejuvenating and nurturing asana’s focusing on strengthening the kidney energy, spine and associated organs.
• Deep breathing to reduce emotional and mental psychological stress.
• Learning through theory and practice how shallow breathing undermines our health, reduces our vitality and leads to anxiety.
• Relative reflexology points through the feet to release blockages.

Details:
Date: Sunday 19th June

 

Please bring a light lunch, water, yoga mat/blanket warm clothes for meditation.
Ayruvedic refreshments will be provided including chai tea and pumpkin soup. Namaste

Breathing Meditation and Invocation

Breathing Meditation

One simple way to bring awareness into your life is through walking meditation. This brings your attention to the actual experience of walking as you are doing it, focusing on the sensations in your feet and legs, feeling your whole body moving. You can also integrate awareness of your breathing with the experience.

To do this exercise, focus the attention on each foot as it contacts the ground. When the mind wanders away from the feet or legs, or the feeling of the body walking, refocus your attention. To deepen your concentration, don’t look around, but keep your gaze in front of you.

We carry our mind around with us when we walk, so we are usually absorbed in our own thoughts to one extent or another. We are hardly ever just walking, even when we are just going out for a walk. Walking meditation involves intentionally attending to the experience of walking itself.

Gratitude Invocation

Be thankful for what you have achieved.

If you have not achieved anything be thankful for having tried.

If you have not tried be thankful to be alive.

Buddha

Namaste,

Megan – Om Shanti
