500hr Core Module ~ Embodied Vitality

Embodied Vitality with Anne Hart, Hansa, Beth Sanchez and Jeremy Wolf
November 18th – 22nd

This module will support simple but deep Mindfulness Practice in the Tradition of Thich Nhat Hahn as a foundational way of being throughout the training.   Additionally, we will cover theory on the energetics of sequencing in general and Ayurvedic sequencing specifically.   In addition to the energetics, we will get very concrete in our understanding of key anatomical and kinesiological principles behind movement theories using multi-media lectures, group practice, and a  teaching practicum which will ground the theory somatically.   This module will also cover the principal philosophical systems within Ayurveda (Shad Darshan) as well as reflect on Patanjali’s implications about asana as a component on the path to awakening.   We will finish with deep and mindful reflection within the practice of dharma sharing.  This module is led by Beth Sanchez and Jeremy Wolf.

Hansa PictureVedic Upanishad~with Hansa: Vedic Upanishad –The Vedic Upanishad are illuminations of the Veda, the oldest spiritual texts. Each Upanishad takes one theme from the Rig Veda and explains it. We will review the major themes in each of fourteen Vedic Upanishads, easily summarized by saying that Spirit resides in your heart. What does that mean though? We will conclude the evening with a Bhakti meditation of the form of AUM, the vibration of the Divine.

*The Wednesday night session of this Module will be held at Hansa’s Studio*
