Join me on Sunday August 7th 2011 for a Mid-Summer’s Yoga Day.
August is the hottest month. La Casa de Maria is situated on a verdant hillside, with gentle ocean breezes caressing the air. Join me for a cooling day at this beautiful spiritual venue. Our theme is the Practice of Mindfulness. Mindfulness is a revolution sweeping our land, and for that we can be grateful. The practice enhances everything we do, our jobs, our relationships, our entertainment and our pleasures. Buddha first taught this practice. Mindfulness creates a portal to contentment and happiness. We learn to welcome each moment of our lives. Come and be enriched on this gentle cooling yoga day. While gardening, cooking, sitting at the computer or any activity that we do, Mindfulness sharpens our capacity to be Present.
Our home for the day will be the cool stone of the Terrace Room. We have available the pool, shady spots in Garden of Peace to be still or to journal. Our yoga and meditations will be oriented to being cool and awake.
Overview of the day: Yoga practice in the morning – no, not really challenging yoga, just the kind that takes you into your own silence, and allows your body to feel more open and free. We talk about mindful living, honing down to the smallest details of what it means to fully present in the moment. We practice seated meditation.
Buffet style lunch of fresh salads and healing foods at the now famous Casa kitchen. Optional swimming or journalling during the lunch break.
In the afternoon we take a Meditative Chakra walk on the grounds, return to our cool Terrace Room for a talking circle and deepen our practice of Mindfulness.
Our day ends with a deep restorative yoga practice.
Go home relaxed, refreshed, renewed and more Present in your Life.
