Intro to primordial sound meditation
with gail ries & David blake jones
Saturday, November 18th 2-3:30pm $30
"Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering into the quiet that's already there." --Deepak Chopra
Join Chopra Center Certified Instructors, David Blake Jones, L.Ac., M.S.P.H. and Gail Ries 200 RYT for an introductory experience of Primordial Sound Meditation. Derived from the yoga tradition of India, PSM was adapted and updated by Deepak Chopra and David Simon to be an easily learned and practiced technique for modern life. Primordial Sounds, the most basic, essential sounds of nature, disconnect us from the activity of life, allowing for more abstract thought and ultimately, silence.
We begin with a brief Yin Yoga practice to unite mind and body in centered awareness. You will then be gently guided into an Introductory Primordial Sound Meditation technique utilizing a universal mantra. Following meditation, there will be a discussion of the experience and how you can take your meditation practice to a deeper level through the personalized, 4 Session Primordial Sound Meditation class at Lift taught by Gail and David, your certified meditation instructors. This brief class teaches you how to meditate with ease the rest of your life. Additionally, we will discuss the latest research linking meditation to anti aging effects.
Through meditation, we journey to the very center of our being, to emotional freedom, to the reawakening of our unconditioned self and our own inner intelligence.
Yin Yoga teacher training
with kim saunders
Saturday, December 9th 1-5pm $65
Yin Yoga is a more meditative, deeper approach to a yoga practice. It is not a trademarked system and thus, there is no certification required to teach it. This ½ day workshop will allow current yoga teachers to add Yin to their course offerings by giving you sequences and explaining the basics and class flow for teaching the Yin style.
Yin Yoga poses are held for a longer time, often 3-5 minutes (and sometimes much longer) to allow time for a deeper opening. It works on the fascia, ligaments and energy circuits of the body, often providing a very calming experience for the student.
