    Yoga & Ayurveda For Everyday Life with Kate Lumsden at The Mindful Body on Sunday, January 3rd, 2010, 1 – 4pm $35 standard / $30 members * Create a routine that you want to commit to. * Create habits you love and that make you look & feel amazing. * Discover a yoga asana practice that’s tailored to your needs and lifestyle. Let 2010 be the year where you unveil your most peaceful vibrant self! In this workshop, Kate will lead you in a two-hour practice incorporating cleansing flow sequences, loving restorative poses, balancing breath techniques, and guided meditation. This asana practice will be complemented by an introduction to the fundamentals of Ayurveda, the medicinal system of which yoga is a part, and how you can incorporate its wisdom into your modern life. Kate finds Ayurveda to be the best guide for helping a modern-day life steer clear of modern pitfalls like stress, anxiety, lethargy, illness, pain, and dis-ease because even small efforts can make for profound positive effects! Ayurveda also isn’t something we often need to set aside more time for; it addresses things we do already (sleep, eat, bathe, speak, think) and teaches us how to do them in a wiser more balanced fashion. You can expect to walk away from this day feeling empowered about creating a thriving harmonious life in 2010!

    All levels welcome, but please have some familiarity with yoga.

    ABOUT KATE: Kate Lumsden has found a consistent yoga & mindfulness practice to be the most effective, dependable tool to sustaining a calm, content & balanced mind. Kate’s yoga practice has become the barometer for her mood and when she doesn’t want to get on the mat it sets off warning bells that there is something deeper that needs to be examined that is keeping Kate from doing what’s best for her. Through meditation, asana and pranayma, Kate examines the present and returns to her natural inner state of peace. Kate’s asana practice started in 1999 as treatment for the scoliosis in her spine and managing anxiety. With an emphasis on intelligent alignment, Kate fell in love with the Astanga Vinyasa practice and its interweaving of breath, movement and meditation. Kate’s earnest approach encourages the student to let go of the tortuous ego, quiet the mind and give rise to inner harmony and peace. The dynamic relationship between Kate and her students is one that allows for individual attention ensuring they receive lessons to strengthen their individual practices within the support of the class community. For more information on Kate, please see www.yoginikate.com.

    Movement and Stillness Merge with Jonathan Reynolds  
    Date: Sat   1/16/2010
    Time:  1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
    Monthly Vinyasa & Vipassana – In this extended practice period we’ll use the tools of vinyasa yoga and vipassana (insight) meditation, each in an effort to awaken to the seed of all experience – our own true nature, presence itself. Pairing these two practices will help us set the stage for a sensitive and wakeful vinyasa period, and our time being with sensation physically will soften and prepare the body for seated meditation in subtle, yet distinct and supportive ways. We’ll practice vinyasa yoga for 90 minutes followed by approximately 30 minutes of seated meditation with instruction. *Open to students of all experience levels, excepting those with major physical limitations – if uncertain, please inquire.Vinyasa Yoga: This method of asana uses vinyasa (flow), modifying breath to create movement in the body, to allow the practitioner insight into yoga as a whole. This is a powerful form of yoga that can be both physically and mentally challenging. By using vinyasa (roughly sun salutations) as yoga’s physical building block, we realize the breath as the building block of consciousness. Yoga as meditation allows us to experience honesty by transcending perceived limitations; building an appreciation of love, integrity, and union. Sanskrit chanting is also central to this experience, as it supports us in connecting to ourselves and others in fresh, yet familiar ways.Vipassana Seated Meditation: Vipassana (insight) meditation is the primary mindfulness practice of the Buddhist tradition. Our time together will be guided by Buddhism’s Four Foundations of Mindfulness – body, sensations, thoughts/emotions, and dharmas. This element of our practice time will be structured to both introduce newcomers to vipassana meditation, and to also allow those with an already existing practice to deepen amongst community. You need not be a Buddhist to participate, as these practices appear in one form or another in all great wisdom traditions. If you enjoy physical yoga, this practice can be an excellent platform to deepen and mature your practice.
        

    It’s Yoga in San Francisco

     - by Journey

    buddha statue

    It’s Yoga opened in San Francisco in 1989 to teach Ashtanga Yoga in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. Although progressive in style, the It’s Yoga method shares the love of the practice with the students of the world. Larry Schultz, the founder of It’s Yoga, has practiced Ashtanga Yoga for over 25 years. His teaching methods help students use the power of Yoga to improve vitality and health, take responsibility for well being, and transform the quality of life.

    A dynamic series of postures that flow one into another, Ashtanga Yoga provides a high energy experience whose therapeutic effects align and purify the body. Ashtanga yoga is dynamic and aerobic. By synchronizing movement with the breath, this ancient system of yoga arouses the inner fire to cleanse and strengthen the body. Ashtanga yoga’s great strength focuses on correct breathing. It oxygenates the blood, helping circulation and bringing more blood to the brain to maximize clear thinking and full creativity. Ashtanga yoga’s most favorable aspect is its capacity to de-stress and reshape the body, counteracting the aging process. The practice induces the elimination of toxins and purifies the body. It serves as a path to health, flexibility, strength, and balance through concentration.

    It’s Yoga features the Rocket Vinyasa System, based in the It’s Yoga Philosophy. Larry Schultz created the Rocket routine, a series of postures based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga intermediate series, to renew energy and vitality in the body. This vibrant routine is called the “Rocket” because, “it gets you there faster.” The Rocket is designed to wake up the nervous system and feed it the precious prana it craves while promoting a spirit of change and freedom in the practice.

    Full of back bending and spinal twisting, this uplifting sequence of postures has gained global recognition as a feel-good experience which opens the body and clears the mind. The Rocket breaks through areas of tension and energy blockage, combating tendencies towards stagnancy and resistance in the body. Frequent hand stands and arm balances keep the energy level high and encourage students to connect to their inner power and open closed circuits in the mind hence improving their world view. The playful and upbeat Rocket routine is the perfect counter to the soothing forward bending of the Primary Series. As a part of a weekly schedule, this routine creates an energy peak in the cyclic rhythms of the practice.ghter mind and body.  

    Rocket I

    Every rocket sequence is made up of 4 parts. Starting with traditional ashtanga suryanamskaras, the sequence moves onto a original standing sequence, full of standard standing poses as well as arm balances to build strength and protect joints. On the floor, yogis will recognize the sequence as being a modification of the seated primary series. The series finishes off with the tradional ashtanga finishing series.

    Rocket II

    Building on the same standing series as Rocket I, Rocket II diverges when it comes to the seated series. Based on the back bending sequence of the seated intermediate series of ashtanga, this sequence complements the forward folds of Rocket I, laying the foundations of building a strong practice.

    Rocket III

    Designed as a way to finish off the week, this sequence is a combination of both Rocket I and Rocket II. Combining the twisted and folds into a dynamic sequence designed to build strenght and flexibility.

    More and more people are finding that regular meditation helps them to not only reduce stress and cope more effectively with life, but also to become wiser and more caring individuals.

    As our mind becomes more positive, our actions become more meaningful and our overall experience of life becomes more satisfying and beneficial to others.

    We don’t need a lot of time or experience to start meditating. All we need is a few minutes everyday to settle our mind.

    Why do people meditate?

    If we examine our life, we discover that most of our time and energy is devoted to finding happiness outside of our mind. For example, seeking material and emotional security from things and other people, enjoying sensory pleasures, or establishing a good reputation.

    Although these things can make us happy for a short time, they are not able to give us the deep and lasting contentment that we long for. Sooner or later, our happiness turns into dissatisfaction and we find ourselves engaged in the pursuit of more worldly pleasures. Directly or indirectly, worldly pleasures cause us mental and physical suffering by stimulating attachment, jealousy and frustration.

    If true fulfillment cannot be found in worldly pleasures, then where can it be found? Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external circumstances. If our mind is pure and peaceful, we will be happy, regardless of our external conditions. However, if it is unpeaceful, we will never find happiness, no matter how much we try to change our external conditions.

    The purpose of meditation is to cultivate states of mind that are conducive to peace and well-being and to diminish and eventually remove those that are not.

    Most meditation that is taught and practiced today comes from the Buddhist tradition. Those that are taught at The Kadampa Centers are all Buddhist meditations, but you do not need to be a Buddhist to practice them or to derive benefit from them.

    Buddhism is a non-evangelical religion, philosophy and way of life which encourages its followers not to rely on blind faith, but to check the truth of the teachings for themselves and to see if they resonate with their experience.

    Guided meditations at The Kadampa Buddhist Temple

    Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced meditator, we think you will find a meditation class that suits you on this site. These classes, guided by an experienced teacher, are a great way to learn to meditate, to improve our meditation practice, or to learn new techniques.

    Benefits of meditation
    These are now well-documented in various mainstream studies, and include:

     

    • increased positive states of mind
    • reduced stress, fear and anxiety
    • contentment and well-being
    • improved concentration
    • better relationships
    • greater physical health and energy
    • no adverse side-effects!
