Restorative Yoga ~ Unwind From the Grind
with Liz Wendel
Saturday, 3/7, 3:00-5:00pm

Restorative Yoga is a passive practice, which just about anyone can do. You don't need to be particularly athletic, fit or flexible. We'll use props (pillows, blankets, straps, etc.) to support your body so you can rest, stretch your muscles; lower your heart rate and blood pressure; calm your nervous system, and experience a peaceful state of deep relaxation. Just wear super comfy layers and bring a mat if you have one. We have everything else you'll need. The perfect antidote to anxiety and overwhelm.

Please sign up early so we can be sure to save your spot as well as seven bucks! You'll say it was the best gift you could have given yourself.

A special opportunity to study with a true Yoga Master! Join Swami Asokananda for a full day of lecture, Integral yoga, and inspiring discourse that will open your body, heart & mind and deepen your understanding of yoga.

1pm - 3pm: LECTURE & MEDITATION
Deepening our Meditation
Without Frustration.
Most of us have enough stress, effort, and strain in our life. Let’s not make meditation one more hard thing to do. Whatever meditation technique we choose, it should help us to have a better understanding and relationship with our self (the primary relationship that affects all other relationships). Swami Asokananda will introduce a simple three-step approach to meditation that has kept his meditation practice interesting, meaningful, and rejuvenating for over 40 years. Chairs and cushions are available for your comfort.

3:30pm - 5:15pm: YOGA CLASS
Integral Yoga and Meditation with Swami Asokananda
This yoga class will be an Intermediate Level class, with a focus on being sensitive to and awakening our prana, while maintaining a meditative flow to the asanas. The class is designed to touch all areas of the physical body, as well as the other levels of our being. The goal of the class is to experience increased vitality, combined with a deep sense of peace.

Note: There will be a one-and-a-half hour DINNER BREAK from 5:15-6:45pm.
There are many local eateries near YogaSpace to choose from.


7pm - 9pm: WISDOM DISCOURSE
The Yoga of Communication: Dealing with Conflict from the Heart
Discover the yogic secrets to good communication! Learning to listen & speak from our 4th chakra (the Heart) can deepen our relationship, especially when dealing with difficult situations. We want to strike a balance of ahimsa (nonviolence) and satya (truthfulness), while making it safe for each person to get information and feelings out in the open. In this discussion with a true yoga master, we’ll learn how yogic awareness can help us let go of our ego, cultivate compassion, and understand the wisdom of our heart; thereby discovering the key to resolving conflict.

ABOUT SWAMI ASOKANANDA:
Swami Asokananda, a monk since 1973, is one of Integral Yoga’s foremost teachers, known for his warmth, intelligence and good humor. His teaching comes out of his own practice and experience, having absorbed the wisdom of his guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda, since the age of nineteen. While he enjoys sharing the practical wisdom of the yogic philosophy (especially the great Indian scripture, the Bhagavad Gita), he also loves his practice of Hatha Yoga and is one of Integral Yoga's primary instructors for Intermediate and Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. In the past he has served as the President of Satchidananda Asham – Yogaville and Integral Yoga International and is currently President of the New York Integral Yoga Institute.
