Musings & Meditation
Is a reflective meditation gathering. This session assists in relaxing the body and the mind through awareness of the breath and practice of meditation postures. Some pranayama and restorative postures may be utilized as well as other subtle body gestures such as mudras (hand positions), mantra (sacred voice), bandhas (energetic locks), and more. As you relax in meditation, the instructor will muse upon an inspirational quote, poem, or idea. Yoga philosophy and insight into self-inquiry will be a recurring topic. Feel free to sit with your eyes closed, take notes or write in a journal, or participate by writing in the comments section of the video.
