The Yoga of Shambhala: Embodied Enlightenment with Dana Strong

July 11–13, 2006

Tuition $110 + 2 nights

In the time of the Buddha, yoga and meditation were considered inseparable practices on the path to enlightenment. Over time it seems the road has forked, and each practice has lost some of its potency without the other.

Just as we train our bodies, we can train our minds. If the body feels blocked, the mind becomes anxious and heavy. Join us to discover the interconnection between yoga and meditation from the Shambhala perspective. This program will include a personal posture consultation, advice for establishing a home practice and specific yoga sequences that support a healthy meditation practice. Students at all levels of practice welcome.

Dana Strong, a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and Vajrayana practitioner, has taught yoga in New York for 10 years under the guidance of Rodney Yee. She has cotaught OM yoga’s teaching-training program and recently led yoga at Shambhala Mountain’s Winter Dathün. She also teaches yoga to incarcerated students at Riker’s Island prison.

This program can also be taken as a combined program with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche’s program Ruling Your World.
