Upcoming Workshops

Mula Bandha

Ty Landrum | September 9 | 8am – 4pm

Through the practice of Hatha Yoga, we learn to gather breath at the pelvic floor and draw it upward through the central axis of the body. This gesture emulates the internal process of awakening, and brings focus and clarity to our experience.  In this workshop, we learn to work with this gesture in asana, pranayama and seated meditation.  We learn to direct the internal movements of the breath, while creating space for the subtle experience of mula bandha to arise. To reserve your place, please register online.

Breathing Into Alignment

Ty Landrum | October 28 – 29 | 8am – 4pm

As our practice matures, so does our sense of alignment.  What begins as a struggle for postural perfection becomes an endless exploration of the wonder of embodied form.  In this workshop, we learn a simple but profound method of exploring postural alignment, based on five distinct patterns of breath.  These patterns recur throughout the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, and when we learn to work intelligently with them, we bring new depth and vibrancy to the practice, while softening ever more deeply into the postures themselves.  Space is limited.  Please register online.

Full Moon Meditation

Saturday, August 12 | 4:30-6:30pm

Join us each month, on the Saturday before the full moon, for a special evening of practice and instruction in meditation.  These events are guided by Gerry Weiner, a senior student and scholar of Tibetan Buddhism and member of the Nalanda translation committee.   Through gentle and methodical instruction, Gerry will help you find an appropriate posture to hold when sitting or practicing walking meditation; teach you how to work with thoughts, feelings and emotions while practicing, introduce you to traditional techniques to help bring the mind to a relaxed and clear state; and help you to connect with the natural source of openness and compassion within you. These sessions will also include short discussions of the teachings of the past meditation masters of Tibet and India.  The sessions typically include both sitting and walking meditation. Chairs are available for those who have difficulty sitting on a meditation cushion.
