The Brahmaviharas, the divine abodes of the heart, are our native heart
capacity when we aren’t getting in our own way. More than just personal
life values, these divine abodes (homes) are also physiological and
neurological realities that we can cultivate. Ancestor yogis laid out the
map for us, without MRIs or brain imaging, using pranayama and
concentration techniques. Today we have access to volumes more
scientific knowledge verifying what yoga has known to be true for
generations. Our task is to put it to use.
Equanimity in Action: Asana, Pranayama & Mindfulness Create
States of Equanimity
This workshop will integrate pranayama and mindfulness tools into asana
creating a deeply embodied experience of the brain state of equanimity
as well as your personal tool kit for coming back home to your heart’s
native equanimity any time, any where, under any circumstances. You
will leave with a layperson’s understanding of the intersection between
yoga and neuroscience. Expect sun salutations, standing poses, and
poses + pranayamas that create pressure shifts in your eco-system,
resolving the tension of habitual mind/body patterns.
Please bring a mat, 2 blocks and a strap. Blankets are always helpful, if you have them.
