Jon Kabat-Zinn considers the practice of mindful yoga one of the doorways to living wisely and he calls it “the lifelong adventure and discipline of working with one’s body as a door into freedom and wholeness.”
In mindful yoga we move consciously and with awareness, attending to each breath and body sensation moment by moment with non-judment and acceptance. The body often gives us our first signals that something important is happening inside us. Through the practice of mindful yoga, we can develop greater awareness of the body and its connection with the mind, as well as enjoying the usual benefits of hatha yoga such as improved balance, flexibility and strength and decreased stress.
Connect with likeminded others and cultivate through movement the various attitudes of mindfulness such as patience, compassion, and acceptance. We start each class with a centering practice, move into gentle, mindful postures for the bulk of the class time, and finish with a longer savasana (a time of relaxation, stillness and integration). Dress comfortably and bring your yoga mat. Rental mats are available for $3 through the studio, cash only exact change please.
