PAST WORKSHOPS

 Love your Body, Love your Self, Love your Life      
A Vinyasa, Metta (Loving Kindness) & Restorative Workshop w/ Kent Bond & Kelly Blaser

SAT 1/9/16 4-7:30pm $60 pre-reg/$70 week of Willow Glen Yoga | willowglenyoga.com

Kent will teach a mixed levels 1.5 hour Asana Class designed to  build Tapas, specifically to aid us in transitioning from the holidays into the new year. Tapas is translated to mean heat but also indicates spiritual focus and ardor. Tapas primes the body for remodeling, and allows the body to find its optimal alignment. Tapas also primes the spirit for insight and opening, the focus of Kelly's offering. Kelly will offer a workshop on Metta, or loving kindness meditation. We will discuss the origins of the practice as a way to manage difficult times, and turn towards the light. Through Metta we harness all our mental/emotional/psycho-spiritual energies and direct ourselves towards the ultimate goal of awakening into self-love, positive transformation, and interconnectedness. We will meditate for a 30 minute period and then practice restorative yoga for one hour, as Kelly continues to lead a Metta-based mindfulness practice.

Please join us at the Shakti Yoga Shala for an afternoon workshop led by Kelly Blaser, Marriage Family Therapist and dedicated student and instructor of yoga. This workshop will be in part a talk, in part a conversation, and in part a practice. Kelly will explain Metta and Tonglen meditation and offer instruction for practice. We will look at the places in our lives where we tend to get lost, and discuss these practices as techniques for returning to center. Specifically, we will delve into the mechanics of addiction, whether it be addiction to a substance or the omnipresent addiction to identity itself, and this simple methodology for breaking its cycle. To be clear, a component of this time will be group process, but participation in the discussion is voluntary and there will be an option to journal instead of sharing.

No reservations required. Pay cash or check at the door.
