Samadi September Happenings!
At the core of your inner quest; at its deepest level, is the open space of curiosity. This comes down to the understanding of softness and being sensitive to what is happening in this moment. This practice is called mindfulness, which summonses our presence as an observer to interact and feel out the questions more than seeking the solutions. This action of observing and receiving here and now has a deep influence on our capability to perceive our experience.
Now visualize mindfulness in your yoga practice; being aware of your senses, beliefs and opinions. Witness yourself being present with the pose and notice when restlessness begins to arise. Then, come back to your senses, your rhythms in the body and lastly to your breath. Mindfulness in our practice allows us the space to taste the nectar of these moments, knowing that this too is not a permanent moment.
Derived from Sanskrit, Samadi means a complete state of concentration or integration. Our intention is to train students in having a fresh perspective on how to approach and grow your own yoga practice. Empowering students to be informed and discerning practitioners. Having holistic lifestyle tools to support you in your daily life. Our yoga training emphasizes the importance of engaging the mind in yoga practice in order to gain insight into one’s attitudes, view-points, identifications, agendas and (self) judgements . We address the importance of working with the emotional body and so to approach the practice as a mind-body-heart discipline.
This September we are offering an array of new Yoga Classes and Events and Introducing students to the recently launched Samadi Yoga Academy beginning in December. Including a variety of stand-alone courses, a student training, a teacher training and a mentoring program for seasoned teachers.
Here’s a lovely article one of our dear teachers Charlotte Skogsberg wrote about Mindfulness “Deepening Into Truth“.
