Real Yoga, Actual Happiness, and Deep Living, Friday, August 3rd 8:15 - 10:00, Aito-makasiini
This session is a profound teaching about the nature of ourselves, yoga, and the mind. Beginning with a 30-minute satsang, Peter will share the yogic purpose and mechanism of meditation and how it influences our lives. In light-hearted, common-sense language, Peter will explain why yogis care about finding a meditative state and how the insight, creativity, and wisdom of meditation transforms life and lets us find happiness.
Then a short, basic pre-meditative asana practice will lead into a 30-minute kriya meditation suitable for all levels, but powerful at establishing the student in meditation. Program track: MAGNESIA PRO
Full-Spectrum Yoga, Saturday, August 4th 14:00 - 15:30, Miinamakasiini
While most practitioners know the word “yoga” means union, not everyone knows how to practice in a way that creates a coming together of the body, mind, and energy. Peter will lead a practice that incorporates moving the body, using the breath, concentrating the mind, and becoming aware of ourselves as energy. The practice concludes with a five-minute meditation.
This leads to the experience of the full radiance of yoga in practice. One leaves feeling whole, in body, mind, and heart. Program track: MOVE
