Weekend Workshop with Rebecca Lerner – June 14th-16th
Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher Rebecca Lerner will guide us on a path of yogic transformation, exploring essential yogic principles and drawing on Chapter 2 of B.K.S. Iyengar’s book, Light on Life. Through asana and pranayama, deepen your capacity for reflection and learn to awaken devotion in your practice. During this dynamic workshop, learn to overcome fear of discomfort and uncover the obstacles that hold us back from doing more than we think we can – in practice and in life.
“In an asana, the mind has to reach inside the body to find a quiet space… until a point comes where perfect balance is felt. If the mind is wandering while practicing, then one is not fully present and there cannot be union. Involvement, interpenetration and insight – these are the required qualities of the practitioner.” – Geeta Iyengar
