Cultivate a Personal Practice: Yoga, Meditation and a Compassionate Heart with Meredith Holt

Sunday, August 28, 2016 at 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Yoga Garden San Francisco
286 Divisadero St,
San Francisco, California 94117

In this workshop we will cover the elements of a home practice- asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra and more! You will create an accessible and attainable home ritual to practice and leave with a fierce support group to encourage you and keep you accountable.

We will use the yoga sutras as a foundation for our understanding of this practice. We will discuss some general structures of an asana practice that prepare the body to sit and train the mind to be one-pointed. We will also talk about the subtler energetic principals that are incorporated.

Finally, we will steep our practice in compassion, gaining a clearer vision of what compassion is and how we can integrate it into our lives.

Topics include:

What is compassion?
What does it mean to take care and nourish your body, mind, and spirit as a personal practice?
How can you cultivate more awareness of your present state to make a conscious decision on how to practice in each moment?
How can you begin to see the people in your life as beings of light and love?
What would it look and feel like to offer the same practice of compassion to them?
This workshop is about growth, connection, and community!

Cost: $70
