  Meditation, Mantra and the Yogic Heartmind

Fridays 12:30-2:30, Jan 22 + Feb 12- March 11

If there were a single yoga practice that lowers stress, calms and clarifies the mind, brings emotional equanimity, balances energy (prana) and the nervous system and opens the “heart”, would you commit to it?

Meditation is that practice.  We know of its  time-tested and scientifically validated benefits on human well-being: For 3,000+ years, meditation has been at the heart of the the yoga tradition.    The Yoga Sutra even posits meditation as the essential practice for removing the causes of suffering, and realizing lives of freedom and fulfillment.

Though the evidence for its efficacy are overwhelming and yoga postures are intended to prepare us for meditation, it is rarely taught in yoga classes.  Without meditation, yoga is an incomplete science.
