Dharma Yoga Workshop with Jerome Burdi (NYC)
Master class // 20:00 – 22:00
This practice will challenge students to dig deep into their determination and will power to achieve great results. None of the asanas are rushed. Students have the opportunity to discover the pose in its full glory and to go deep into a meditative state. We will open and align the energetic body by using physical body as a tool. Modifications of poses will be offered for beginners. All are welcome!
Maha Sadhana // 18:00 – 21:00
The workshop will include several aspects of yoga: kirtan, pranayama, meditation, and asana poses in an all levels practice that will focus on inversions, hip openers and backbends. The sadhana will make the body healthy, strong, and flexible and lead students to quiet the mind, build endurance and overcome fears. Included at the end is a wonderful way to relax the body and mind called yoga nidra. It’s an active meditation guided by the teacher, a perfect way to end the asana practice. It’s said that 30 minutes of yoga nidra is as good as three hours sleep.
