Mindful Yoga - Level I

at Common Ground Meditation Center

Cost: By donation

Mindful Yoga brings together the physical practice of hatha yoga and the awareness practice of mindfulness mediation. We pay attention to what alignment works for our body while noticing how we are relating to the experience of the pose. By doing this, we begin to let go of our self-criticizing, judgmental mind and cultivate a wholesome connection between mind and body. Payment is by donation for all classes offered at Common Ground.

This class is a drop-in class, attend anytime. More about Common Ground’s practice of generosity.

Mindful Yoga Level 2

at Common Ground Meditation Center

This class is for people who have attended Level 1 Mindful Yoga and have developed the body awareness necessary to move into more challenging physical yoga poses with ease in the mind.

We explore physical alignment that results in both physical and mental freedom. In this way, the poses provide an opportunity to consciously cultivate a wholesome, joyful relationship with the body.

Gentle Yoga and Deep Relaxation

at Common Ground Meditation Center

In this class we study and practice relaxation techniques that allow us to “let go” into a deep state of stillness. The result is unification and peacefulness in all aspects of our being. First, we do some gentle yoga poses and yogic breathing to purify the body and draw the focus inward. Then we recline on the floor and are guided into a deep relaxation - a state called Yoga Nidra, where the mind is awake, calm, and alert and the body is completely free of tension. Effects of practicing Yoga Nidra can be better sleep, freedom from anxiety, and increased mental clarity.
