Being present in the moment opens up your experience of life.
Through the practice of presence, you release limiting mental patterns such as stress and anxiety, and open your heart to the fullness and richness of experience available to you in each moment. Using the body and breath as anchoring tools for awareness cultivates grounded presence within you. Without grounding, the mind remains susceptible to the fluctuations of the constantly changing conditions of the movement of life around you. By learning to consciously turn your focus inward through yoga practice, you develop emotional stability and mental balance that will radiate out into your relationships and daily life.
Join Tantric Practitioner, Coach and Yoga Acharya Heather Oblak for Tantra Yoga For Self Empowerment -:- Grounded Presence where you will learn simple yet powerful meditative yoga practices to unify and harmonize your body (asana), mind (dharana) and breath (pranayama). Weaving individual, group, and partner practices, this intensive workshop is an invitation for you to open the door to Self-discovery and begin a conscious journey into the Heart of who you are.
A unique feature of this offering is that you will receive an ajapa japa mantra initiation and will learn how to integrate it into a dynamic, meditative, breath-centered tantra yoga practice. The integrated practice is designed to clear, focus, and direct your energy. You will also receive audio recordings of the meditations, a journal, and a copy of the practice sequence that you can take home with you. The foundational practices that you learn can be used as a template to develop your own personal self empowerment practice.
Open to all who feel drawn to this offering. Prior yoga experience not required. Yoga-curious, beginners, and advanced practitioners welcome. Please refrain from eating a large meal for at least 2 hours before the workshop, bring one bath-size towel, and wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move and breathe freely.
After the workshop, you are invited to join us for Moksha Yoga Center’s weekly Kirtan & Dinner. Call and response chanting from 6:30-8 is led by the Bhakti Loft faculty (by donation). Kirtan will be followed by a delicious (complimentary) vegetarian sattvic dinner made according to yogic principles.
