New to meditation or seeking to renew and support your practice? In this two-part course that includes an integrated yoga sequence (asana, visualization, chanting, and meditation), Gary Kraftsow shows you how meditative practices can foster a deeper connection to our true nature.
In the first part, you’ll learn about the stages of meditation as outlined in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra and about different meditation methods such as object-focused practices, visualizations, and breath techniques. You’ll also learn about the power of mantra and how meditation intersects with world religions in various ways.
In the second part, Gary guides you through an integrated practice designed to enhance mental focus. You’ll do a visualization about your life’s journey, call and response chanting, a chakra-awareness practice, dynamic movement in basic poses combined with chanting, and more.
Stimulate your mind and refresh your yoga practice with this course that’s designed to leave you feeling both grounded and inspired.
