Yoga in Buddhism

Yoga in Buddhism

We welcome Losang Samten to Chico as he begins the sand mandala at the Museum of Northern California Art (MONCA) October 18.    As many of us know, thousands of years ago in Northern India and surrounding mountain regions like Tibet, yoga practices and Buddhist thought were available for study and development by teachers and students of meditation. It was a very rich time for the seekers who found their way there.

Today we often hear of yoga and buddhism as two separate lineages or directions to take. This talk is an opportunity to think about what yoga is and what Buddhism is. Losang Samten will undoubtedly have many insights to share in his delightful storytelling manner. Please join us at the Yoga Center in welcoming Losang Samten!

Questions for Losang will be accepted until October 21 at ritvashanta12@gmail.com.

RESTORATIVE YOGA TRAINING
Oct
19
to Oct 21

RESTORATIVE YOGA TRAINING

Western Science is now measuring the numerous benefits of relaxation to the body and mind, which yogis have long known.  With Restorative Yoga now on the rise in popularity in the US, it is no wonder that this practice of relaxation and ease is so successful.  From a young age we are taught how to strive, work hard and keep moving, but rarely have we been shown how to rest and rejuvenate.  The Restorative Yoga practice teaches us how to relax, become still and get centered.
 
Spira’s Restorative Yoga Training is a 3-day intensive for those interested in diving deeper into a Restorative Yoga practice as well as for those wanting to learn how to teach Restorative Yoga effectively.  Yoga students can learn how to sequence a home practice and improve their relaxation skills both in and outside of the yoga classroom.  Yoga teachers can build upon their teaching techniques and broaden their repertoire by learning effective methods of teaching, sequencing and assisting students in this increasingly popular practice.    

Topics Include:

  • The science and philosophy behind Restorative Yoga

  • Various methods of sequencing for a home practice, Restorative Yoga class, and private lesson

  • Restorative backbends, forward folds, hip openers, twists, and inversions

  • Multiple asanas and their alignment, from simple to prop intensive

  • Blanket folding and use of props

  • Overviews of the systems of the body and how Restorative Yoga initiates the relaxation response

  • Observing the body and bring the asana to the individual by supporting various anatomical differences

  • Special poses for menstruation, pregnancy and menopause

  • Effective language to assist and guide the relaxation process

  • How to transition into new teaching techniques and how to market oneself as a Restorative Yoga teacher

  • Required Reading:  Relax and Renew by Judith Hanson Lasater

    Schedule:
    Friday, October 19th from 7 - 9PM
    Saturday, October 20th from 11:30AM - 7PM
