- Lectures and Discussion on Nutrition
- Building good habits for Mindful Eating
- Examinations of our daily routines in actions and thoughts
- Mindful development of fitness, meditation, and life goals
- Reading and discussing books that help us understand what mindfulness is, how our unique individual physiology interacts with nutrition, and why our mind can play tricks on our best decision!
In the ancient texts of yoga, asanas, poses were not the focus. Rather there were thousand of pages written on the art of “Svadhyaya”. Svadhyaya is a Sanskrit term that translates to ‘self-study’. Ancient yogis spent most of their focus on developing techniques on mindfulness, ways to become more present, more authentic and more united with life.
The goal of this course is to connect you to this ancient art of Svadyaya with modern tools.
The greatest lessons of yoga are not on your mat, but in everyday life with family, work and friends. How we live and conduct our life is yoga. We should all live a joyful, loving, thriving experience at work and at home. We all wish to have a healthy relationship with our partners and with our bodies.
Are you living to your full potential?
During this workshop most importantly we will delve into your mind. 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 – OPTIONAL: 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.
