from 14.30-18.30 (2.30-6.30pm)
Explore or deepen your meditation practice and your experience of the Heart
Yoga is a holistic practice that aims at reconnecting ourselves with our natural lifeforce and inner wisdom not only in our body and mind, but also in our heart.
The heart is a key aspect in the yoga tradition. One Sanskrit word for heart is indeed hridaya, which directly translates as “the center” or “the place in the middle.” Beyond the center of our sentimental and emotional world, the heart in yoga is used to describe the very depth of our being where we can rediscover ourselves, feel connected to self and others, and where life ultimately makes sense.
This afternoon workshop is a dive into the realm of yoga beyond asana practice, and the universe of the heart more specifically.
Although we will include gentle asana to prepare our body for sitting meditation, the primary focus will be to cultivate an embodiment of the particular state of being, the place within, that ancient eastern sages have called the Heart. .
Drawing from easily digestible teachings from eastern philosophy and more modern mindfulness, we will practice several techniques and journey towards a state of inner stillness and embodiment of the heart, so it becomes experiential at both a physical and more spiritual, or subtle, level. You will be able to take home the various meditations (you will get audio recordings) and either integrate them into your home practice or start one.
Experience with meditation is recommended but not strictly necessary. Most important is your willingness to turn inwards and curiosity about what you might discover there.
This is an in-person workshop, yet the session will be recorded. Each participant will get audio recordings of the meditations and a written summary of the theoretical and technical framework after the workshop.
Costs: 400 kr.
Location: The Yoga Flat, Nørrebro location, Copenhagen.
Please come 15 min before to settle, so we can start on time. Bring a journal.
Yoga props, tea, water, and light snacks will be provided. Feel free to bring some food and whatever you might need to stay comfortable.
