“According to Vedantic philosophy, the human mind is the obstacle to liberation, but it is also the tool that drills, penetrates, and drives one to the innermost treasure, the kingdom of Atman.” Swami Rama

This workshop will briefly outline the human mind according to the Vedantic philosophy.  We will consider how our restorative yoga practice can help us to find the innermost treasure that Swami Rama mentions and the importance of practices that aim to calm the mind. 

We will give ourselves permission to lie down, soften, slow down the brain waves, soothe the nervous system, recharge, boost energy levels, unfold over props, feel supported and held in a comfortable silence.  In addition to the asana practice, there will be some simple techniques in breath control to help expand and balance the flow of vital energy, and possibly a little mantra work to assist us on our journey.  Seated meditation will be weaved into an almost silent practice to enable you to observe the effects of the restorative practice and dive into the subtle aspects of your yoga practice. 

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time.
