The Heart of Yoga: Contemplative Immersion
January 2019 - March 2019
A unique, six module intensive for those who are looking for an inspiring, structured meditation and contemplative yogic training that builds session to session. This immersion can be enrolled in separately or as a segment of Live Well’s 200-hr (RYS) Yoga Teacher Training Program.
Live Well Studio’s 2019 yogic immersion program is for serious seekers, yogis, meditators and curious philosophers alike. Our three months of deep study together will follow a rich, sophisticated yogic curriculum and include deepening or progressive meditative practice, philosophical inquiry, postural practice, yogic techniques, community, and dialogue. The weekend-based, 6-module program is designed to investigate embodied contemplative and meditative practice sequentially, beginning with foundations and building gradually to the deeper, dialectical, more esoteric yogic teachings. The immersion includes silent retreat weekends and culminates in a module called "Embodying Love," which is an exploration of contemplative practice off the cushion/yoga mat.
Most practices are inspired by or derived from the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism and classical Patanjali Yoga, yet the practices will be held in a greater context of modern, Western, integral spirituality. Clear pathways will be carved by our time together, but each practitioner will weave his or her own journey. Participants will become steeped in practice and methodology, understanding not just the “how” but also the “why.” Entry by application. Led by philosopher, yogi and meditator, Katelin Gallagher.
