Yoga – Refining our Perceptions

Tuesdays & Fridays 2-3 pm

Fri, Jan 8- Fri, Feb 12 (11 classes)

I’m offering this set of yoga classes during the break between semesters as a way to gather and move while exploring something new together.  These sessions are seriously playful embodied inquiries.  Each class is oriented around a key yogic theme from non-dual Shaiva Tantric tradition.  Beginning with a brief check in, the session continues to an orientating discussion on the theme, followed by asana practice (45 minutes).  The open level yoga practices sensitize us to feel into and experience dynamics of life astutely described in the tradition. This approach aims to open access into the tools yoga brings forward to help us navigate our lives with skill and ease.   (45 minutes).  

Themes to be considered in the 11 classes include –

  1. Consciousness, or How do I feel my big toe?
  2. Concealment & Revelation aka Peekaboo
  3. Mind Moves
  4. Pulsation
  5. Creating, Sustaining, and Dissolving
  6. Body, Mind and the Three Qualities of Nature 
  7. States of Consciousness
  8. Soma-Nectar and the Integrative Wholeness of Body 
  9. Releasing
  10. Yoga as Refined Knowing
  11. Self-study and Textual Bliss

Limited to 12 students per class to allow for participation, students are invited to come to one or more of the sessions.  You are warmly invited to turn on your camera to facilitate interaction and build community.  Instructor will be spotlighted during asana practice.  Please pre-register at at no charge.  The Zoom link will be sent by email and is available in the View Details section for the class. If you cannot come, please take your name off the list so others can have a spot.  Sponsored by the Chaplain’s Office.
