Yoga is nothing if not a journey to show you how to experience life directly and be at peace. To further your journey, immerse yourself in this profound practice with two of the nation’s most respected yoga teachers, Colleen Saidman and Rodney Yee.
Spend the weekend exploring asana, meditation, and pranayama, and the relationship between the three. As you align to your center through asana, you hone the attention of your mind, which can observe the subtle messages of your breath. Then you weave your mind and body together with the thread of your breath in pranayama. This yoking brings you to meditation and present-moment awareness.
Saidman and Yee guide you through a series of standing and seated poses, twists and backbends, poses to open the hips, and forward bends. When you experience a vinyasa practice through all the postures, with an emphasis on breath, you end at the doorstep of pranayama and meditation. This turns you inward toward your center, where you more deeply observe your beautiful life freely unfolding.
