Breath, Rhythm, Mantra and Meditation: Therapeutic Yoga for Times of High Stress
If you are looking for a practice that helps heighten your oneness with the creator, strengthens your compassion for self and others, and helps you change the things you can and accept the things you cannot, then join us for this monthly one-hour Zoom class.
We begin with simple Hatha stretching (modified for all physical abilities) which can be done seated in a chair or on the floor; then we continue with a combination of Kundalini Yoga pranayama (breath), simple, rhythmic kriyas (movements), mantras (spiritual chanting) and passage meditation. Certain specific techniques from other therapeutic, neurobehavioral disciplines such as modified EMDR from Kundalini Yoga therapy, or patterned algorhythms from EFT/TFT to combat stress, compulsions and reduce physical pain may also be practiced. Handouts of some of the therapeutic activities will be provided via e-mail to class participants for home use. See accompanying handouts for examples of materials: Feel The Beat: The Impact of Rhythm on the Brain and Kirtan Kriya Meditation, evidenced-based kriya and meditation to help reverse cognitive decline and early Alzheimer's.
