The greatest lessons of yoga are not on your mat, but in everyday life with family, at work, with friends. How we live and conduct our life is yoga. We should all live a joyful, loving, thriving experience at work, at home, with our partners and in our bodies.
Are you living to your full potential?
During this workshop most importantly we will delve into your mind. Without judgment and/or criticism we will journal everyday about our emotions and feelings. We will explore meditation practices. With the help from our reading material we will learn and explore how our thinking and emotional brain behaves and maybe gain some understanding into why we do the things that we do. We will also strengthen and tone our body as we will have to do our very best to practice yoga 6 days a week for 40 days. We will focus on cleaning up our eating habits and building more loving awareness to how we eat. By the end of 40 days you will leave with healthier habits and better knowledge of yourself!
YOGA PRACTICE: Try to practice yoga 6 days a week. The 7th day is a restorative home practice, optional yoga class, or day of rest. (Cost of membership is included in the price of the workshop. If you already have an unlimited membership at Spira or if you live further away where daily practice at Spira would be not possible, purchase the package with NO YOGA only meetings)
MEDITATION: At home (5-15minutes) or before classes in the mornings and evenings.
WEEKLY MEETINGS: For 7 Fridays 7:30-9:30pm we will get together to listen to lectures from Dora followed by group discussions on topics from the books. We will also learn guided meditation, and goal centering and inner peace building journaling techniques.
