“Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodhah” One common interpretation is “yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind." In other words, Yoga is done in order to achieve stillness and clarity of mind.
This course is designed to take you on a journey into the depths of your being to discover the freedom and happiness that is your essential nature. This will be an opportunity to develop your practice with an intensive focus on the body, mind and soul with a traditional Hatha Raja Yoga practice as passed on by Sri Andrei Ram sprinkled with creative vinyasa. We will learn to pay attention to what is, as it is with an attitude of kindness. Olivia will share how to explore basic to intermediate poses with awareness and consciousness and to create effortless transitions appropriate for students of all levels. You will explore a little bit of everything : backbends, deep twists, deep hip openers and of course inversions. This course will include breathwork, kriya yoga techniques and guided meditation.The focus on this course will be letting go and flow. Connecting mind and body with joy and calm. Losing yourself, finding yourself, accepting where you are in the present moment and getting to know yourself better.
