Learning The Fundamentals of Self-Practice
Sunday, February 19 2017
1:00 – 2:30 pm
Santa Monica Yoga
This workshop is a continuation of Part I, where we learned the fundamentals of establishing a daily meditation practice. We also addressed the primary obstacles and challenges of daily meditation: being comfortable in the physical posture; scheduling time; commitment to a daily practice; and calming the mind. To encourage the development of a self-practice, I emphasized the signfigance of maintaining a daily routine for at least 40 days that would help ensure that your meditation practices becomes a healthy “habit.”
In part II, we will discuss and evaluate your experiences over a 40 day period: what positive changes have been created in your life from your daily mediation practice? Where there also physical benefits? What challenges did you face over the past month. In addition, what are some additional methods that you can use for stress reduction, relaxation and focusing the mind through specific pranayama techniques and yoga asana.
