The Pulse Within

10 hour Yoga Immersion & Workshop

INSTRUCTOR: Emily Perry & Josh Schrei

DATE: January 26th-28th, 2018

TIME: Friday: 7-9pm. Saturday & Sunday: 1-5pm.

COST: $185 for the weekend or $25 Friday, $80 Saturday, $80 Sunday

Deepening Our Meditation, Pranayama, & Asana Practice Through Understanding Vibration

This weekend immersion explores & celebrates the profoundly beautiful Indian teachings on vibration. We’ll delve into how they relate to our āsana & meditation practices, & our lives off the mat. Our time together will include asana, breathwork, meditation, chanting, singing, listening, & satsang.

For centuries, Indian tradition has recognized and expounded upon the fundamental truth: that everything is vibration. Over many years the examination of vibration not simply as a phenomenon but as a vehicle through which the human being can experience connection to the deeper pulse and rhythm of life and nature was refined and transmitted. This celebration of the vibrational power of the cosmos reaches its zenith in the Tantras, whose texts and practices are primarily concerned with how to experience, harmonize with and connect to vibration.

This vibration they call Spanda; in the Tantras, vibration is consciousness, it is the pulse of breath, and it is the way to the heart. In āsana, vibration manifests as the pulse that inherently exists within ‘static’ poses that opens, strengthens, and connects us to center. In meditation, vibration is the calm and tranquil mind. Silence itself is a vibration.

Satsang, weekly

INSTRUCTOR: Sherry Cassedy

DATE: Every Monday

TIME: 7:30 – 8:30am

COST: Free and open to all!

 

Pleasure Point Yoga’s Monday morning Satsang is a unique (and free) opportunity to delve deeper into the esoteric teachings of Yoga in the company of one another. It is a great introduction for anyone who is curious to learn more, and an open invitation to revisit and share in the supported space of the Sangha as we deepen our practice.

Satsang will resume Monday, January 8, 2018, with overview of the Sutra, some Sanskrit basics, and then taking up the second book, Sadhana Pada on Practice.  It is a wonderful time to join in but always feel free to drop in as we share the path of yoga.

“Satsang” is a Sanskrit word derived from “sat”, meaning truth, and “sanga”, meaning community. In Satsang, we gather together, in community to seek truth or, more simply, to be with the truth. We create the space with chanting, light, and intention, gentle rituals that help us to dedicate this hour to our study and practice and to one another.

Ever wondered how they do that? Join Lindsey Hunt for a 2 hour workshop that focuses on alignment and technique to help get you safely in and out of arm balances and inversions. We will begin with a 30 minute warm up and then learn 3 arm balances: Crow, Side Crow, Peacock and 3 inversions: Handstand, Headstand, Forearm Stand. All levels welcome – whether you are a newer yogi or have been practicing for years – it’s never too soon or too late to learn.
*Space is limited to 15 students!
Lindsey began practicing yoga in 2012. With a gymnastics and cheerleading background, she immediately was drawn to the challenging poses and flexibility components of vinyasa. Soon, she realized that yoga was much more than the postures and wanted to learn more about yoga as a whole to gain an in depth knowledge of the practice. Lindsey completed her teacher training in the fall of 2013 in San Francisco and has been teaching ever since. She loves to go upside down and “fly” as much as possible, and tries to incorporate these in her vinyasa flow classes regularly.
