Prajna Yoga and the Heart of Meditation
September 28–30, 2012
Yoga and meditation require sustained effort and the Prajna (literally ‘wisdom’) to surrender to the ever-shifting reality of each moment. Given that Hatha Yoga harmonizes oppositional energies, in this intensive we will cultivate both dynamic and receptive qualities. Our aim will be to recognize one’s tendencies to expand or contract, grasp or reject, project outward or retreat inward. We will explore a variety of practices that guide us toward greater levels of perceptivity and feeling. Using dynamic sequences on the yoga mat, receptive sensory awareness training and mindful meditation, we will seek balance in body, heart and mind.
