Equanimity Now: Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation | Yin Yoga et Méditation Pleine-Conscience FULL

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The root cause of most of our suffering stems from chasing pleasant sensations and resisting unpleasant ones. When left unchecked, our cravings and aversions can have us acting and reacting in predictable and often self-sabotaging ways. 

Through the practice of non-judgmental awareness in each long-held passive yin stretch, we will cultivate the ability to observe what we feel without getting caught up in our usual highs and lows. Not only will we practice mindfulness in the postures themselves, the sequence will prepare us for the final seated meditation.

When we surrender to the present moment, we have the opportunity to experience a deep sense of inner-peace and harmony independent from our external circumstances. Our predictable reactions fall away, leaving room for new and exciting possibilities!

La cause de la plupart de notre souffrance découle de la poursuite des sensations agréables et de la résistance à celles qui sont désagréables. En l’absence de tout contrôle, nos envies et aversions peuvent nous faire agir et réagir de façon prévisible et sont souvent à l’origine de l’auto-sabotage. Grâce à la pratique de la prise de conscience sans jugement pendant chaque étirement de yin passif tenu pendant longtemps, nous allons cultiver la capacité d'observer ce que nous ressentons sans nous faire attraper dans nos hauts et bas habituels. Non seulement nous allons pratiquer la pleine conscience dans les postures elles-mêmes, la séquence va nous préparer pour la méditation assise finale. Lorsque nous nous abandonnons au moment présent, nous avons l'occasion de faire l'expérience d'un profond sentiment de paix intérieure et d'harmonie indépendant de nos circonstances extérieures. Nos réactions prévisibles tombent, laissant la place à des possibilités nouvelles et passionnantes!
