Dynamic Meditation & Sounds Meditation
This session brings together yoga asana, meditation, pranayama, and chanting. Allow yourself to immerse in and become surrounded by gentle music while making use of The Counted Method techniques of ashtanga vinyasa yoga, we will come together as One Consciousness. Creating a dynamic movement meditation, flowing together on the wings of sound and a collective breath. Following the asana practice, we expand our awareness into the deep inner stillness of pranayama. Harnessing our uniqueness, vocalising through chanting with an open heart
Saturday Session 1: Dynamic Asana Meditation & Deep Rest
On Saturday we start the day with a dynamic asana practice that takes you deeper into The Counted Method of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. You will practice to the gentle rhythm of sound. The practice guides you towards a more intense focus, quieting the ordinary thinking mind and allowing the light of the wisdom mind to shine through
In this class John and Julia will share the science behind the sequencing of the Yoga Chikitsa Series, offering you an understanding of how to practice with sustainability and longevity for future years of grace. The practice will conclude with a relaxation journeying deep into your own inner stillness
Saturday Session 2: Pranayama Meditation & Sound Meditation
Breath of life Pranayama is a practice that expresses gratitude to Mother Earth for how she loves us unconditionally with her trees and oceans. In this session, we will harness her Prana. While lying down, surrendering to the embrace of Mother Earth, you will be surrounded by subtle frequencies of sound that transcend beyond the three-dimensional material realm. Julia and Bart will guide you on a journey of heavenly sounds
Sunday Session: Pranayama Meditation & The Wheel of Yoga
In this last session, we will seal the weekend with playfulness! You get to explore techniques of self-practice to take home, so you can continue the deepening of your practice. Bring your notebook as John & Julia will unpack the wisdom of the wheel of yoga offering you gems of insight that will allow you to connect the dots of this weekend. It will unravel the wisdom in Patanjali’s teachings of the Eight limbs of Yoga
The session is closed by a celebration and closing ceremony to seal the weekend we shared together
