Vijnana Yoga: Mindfulness & Tensegrity
Presented by: Sylvain Brochu, Leslie Young
Retreat invites a deepening into the spiritual aspect of yoga and provides an opportunity to establish or renew one's practice. Vijnana Yoga is a holistic path that integrates meditation, pranayama, energy practices, asana and philosophy. Through a practical exploration of myofascial meridians, learn how the architectural model of tensegrity (tensile-integrity) is applicable to the human body. Redefine the concept of the core through the Tensegrity Repair Series. Discover ease and efficiency of movement and space in the mind and body. Explore how yoga's ancient philosophy is relevant to our contemporary context. Cultivate deep listening, compassion and an open-heart. Reconnect with the eternal dance of the masculine and feminine principles, in both asana and all facets of life.
