Moving into Mindfulness

  • A half-day workshop exploring mindfulness through yoga practice
  • Josh Gale
  • Workshop

Mindfulness Yoga applies skills from the mindfulness tradition to the practice of asana, the physical forms and movements of yoga. The aim is to connect deeply to the present moment, our breath and bodies, and to open our hearts. The result is a more grounded, joyful, and responsive way of life.

During this half day workshop, we will explore different aspects of mindfulness and how they relate to yoga practice. We’ll also try three short mindfulness meditations, and experience walking meditation and the joy of mindful tea drinking. You’ll leave feeling deeply relaxed and open to your life.
