3 Workshops
Sun, Oct 13th 4-6:30 PM
Mon, Oct 14th 10-12:30 & 2-4:30 PM
$20 per workshop or $50 for all 3

Each practice session begins in seated meditation with the focus on relaxation, letting go and opening up to present awareness and aligning heart/mind with our virtuous motivation.
Next we focus integrating ShantiDeva’s Daily Prayer of Compassion (also known as the Dalai Lama’s Daily Prayer similar to St. Francis prayer) memorizing it through hand gestures and movements.
Then we rise to set series of stances, balancing, circulating dynamic movement patterns with and without the staff, and then we return to seated meditation for final absorption.

The experience of Prana Danda Meditation in Flow Motion:
Provides precise alignment in yoga poses, guides the direction of flow energy and centers the mind.
Stimulates both hemispheres of the brain and rewires the nervous system with cross lateral movement balancing the staff on the body, hand mudras, stances and step patterns.
Harnesses energy (prana) through conscious breathing coordinated with rhythmic movement
In these workshops, you will learn 5 foundational Kriyas drawn from the mandala of the Five Families of Flow that can be practiced on their own or combined.
