Do you find it hard to sit upright comfortably for an extended amount of time? Do your thoughts jump around, emerge frantically, collide with each other and make it difficult for you to focus? Are you easily distracted?


Perhaps the idea of being in stillness with the breath does appeal to you but you wonder how such an elusive state can be obtained.

If you are interested in learning something new, come join us for a special 8 week series where you'll learn how the various tools of yoga can be integrated and woven together to help you enter a space that holds stillness and is full of meaning.


"Learning how to be still, to really be still and a let life happen, that stillness becomes a radiance." 

- Morgan Freeman

Class by class progression:

Day 1: Linking Breath with Movement - Preparing the Body and Building Focus

Day 2: Coordination with the Breath - Paying Attention

Day 3: Refining Breath-Centric Asana - Slowing Down

Day 4: Listening to the Breath - Developing Awareness of Breath Capacity

Day 5: Listening to the Breath - Developing Inhalation with Breath Adaptation in Asana & Pranayama

Day 6: Listening to the Breath - Developing Exhalation with Breath Adaptation in Asana & Pranayama

Day 7: Incorporating Sound - Vocalization in Asana Practice

Day 8: Practice Dharana (Concentration) - Integrated Preparation


Please note this is a PREPARATION for meditation class series. We will be preparing the body and working with the breath; this involves breath-centric movement. We will not be sitting for long periods of time; in fact any sitting that you connect with will probably last no longer than 5 minutes. You will explore how to work with your structure, your energy, your mind and your breath to increase the chances of being able to sit and have a meaningful meditation experience on Day 8. Day 8 will still contain plenty of movement work.
