September 12th – October 24th
(No class on October 10th)
Thursdays • 8:30am – 9:45am
Move and meditate in the mornings at IMAC! Join Lani Weissbach, IMAC’s Director of Embodied Learning, for a centering and energizing practice that integrates somatic dance/movement, basic asana (yoga postures), pranayama (yogic breathing practices), and meditation from a variety of lineages in an organic and meditative flow. Dive beneath the surface of mainstream, fitness-oriented yoga to discover the essence of this ancient wisdom tradition. While our physical practice will be intelligent and precise, this class will focus less on the mechanics of asana and more on cultivating presence and ease in mind and body. The class will start with 45-50 minutes of movement, followed by a guided meditation. Please bring a yoga mat and thick blanket to class. All levels are welcome! Registered yoga teachers may use this class for continuing education credits with Yoga Alliance.
In this class we will:
- Become the observer of the thinking mind in order to experience the power and healing potential of living in the present
- Experience a deep peace and rejuvenation that comes through moving and still meditation
- Learn essential teachings to apply to your daily life that will encourage you to be your own best friend and teacher
- Explore a variety of somatic movement processes from East and West that keep your yoga/movement practice fresh, interesting and fulfilling
