The Harbor of the Heart: Practice as a place of refuge.
with Sam Rice
“Turning within is called yoga.” – Gurumayi Chidvilasananda
Definition of harbor:
– a place of security and comfort
– a part of a body of water protected and deep enough to furnish anchorage
The yoga practice offers each one of us the opportunity to anchor our attention into our minds, bodies and hearts. Each pose offers the possibility to journey within because of their endless opportunity for refinement. In this workshop, we will utilize the outer expressions of the poses to explore the deep vastness within. Detailed alignment cues ask us to look deep inside and discover our capacity.
Sam Rice believes it takes consistent and dedicated practice to stay anchored in the heart, and some days are easier than others. In the spirit of shared intention please join Sam Rice for a weekend of detailed alignment to focus the mind, open and strengthen the body, and express the heart fully. Sam is known for her diligent and detailed alignment instructions, that are delivered with great skill, passion, and humor, offering students the opportunity to find renewed depth in practice.
