The Science of Meditation – Lecture, Pranayama, Guided Meditation

We will also explore how the brain works as we move from through these different states of consciousness during meditation. Then Krista will introduce us to some breathing techniques that help prepare us for meditative practices and more specifically tap the pineal glad, which controls all of the different states of consciousness.

Ashtanga Strength Elements

From the gross to the subtle, this is what Yoga is about. To do that we start with the physical body using asanas and movement to create a fit and strong body, which gives us the framework to cultivate a fit and strong mind. Ashtanga Yoga method is brilliant as it helps us cultivate physical strength while at the same time helping us evolve our mental and spiritual realm. The asanas themselves become more and more challenging as you work through the first and into the second and third series’. This workshop is designed to assist practitioners on the physical plane focused on fundamental techniques that will aid in building strength and a solid physical foundation that will assist the student in their Ashtanga asana practice, and their overall spiritual journey. Spend the day with Krista learning how to cultivate strength and steadiness of body and mind by exploring alignment, isolated strength building exercises, meditation techniques, positive thinking, affirmations, and much more! Suitable for all levels. 2 hours

BBD: Breath, Bandhas, Drishti

Deep breathing with sound gives us body and mind control. Bandhas are internal muscular and energetic centers, that, when activated and engaged pulls our attention within. Mastery of bandhas enable us to gain strength from the inside out, which, over time, gives us complete body control. Drishti’s are gaze points to direct our attention during asana practice. In order to successfully progress in our practice, we must understand the concepts and learn how to apply them in our asana practice. But how? Spend the afternoon with Krista exploring these invaluable concepts in depth, and learn how to apply them in the asanas of primary series. Serious work and some serious fun!
