Making Peace with Silence: Preparing a busy mind for physical stillness

  • Brooklyn Strength 195 Pacific Street Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States

Sitting down and being quiet is not your thing. Meditation feels mentally noisy and falling asleep can be a challenge. Yoga has tools that can help. In this workshop I will introduce the 8-limbed system as described by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras that is meant to aid in mental clarity and focus. You will learn physical postures and breathing techniques followed by a seated meditation, a supine relaxation called Yoga Nidra/ yogic sleep. 

Erin is a senior teacher at Kula Yoga Project. She was on faculty at Stony Brook University in New York for 5 years where she wrote and implemented the Somatic Yoga syllabus and taught Contemporary Dance, Dance Improvisation and Butoh. Within her practice you feel her love of movement, the influence of kinesthetic anatomy, the investigative philosophy of Irmgard Bartenieff, the quiet passion of Astanga Vinyasa and the rigorous intelligence of Iyengar Yoga. Her alignment cues and energetic directives create a nurturing space for the practitioner to fully engage in an objective investigation of their physical, mental and psychical condition.
