This workshop is designed to teach how the concept of mindfulness can enrich one’s yoga practice and daily living. After a brief introduction to yoga philosophy that will include the yamas and niyamas (articulated in Pantanjali’s Yoga Sutras), participants will explore the use of yoga philosophy in Western mental health care. We will also practice mindfulness meditation techniques and yoga asana (postures and poses). The result will be that practitioners leave the workshop with some ready techniques that can be applied to life on and off the yoga mat.

This is the second workshop, of a series of three, on Mindfulness Yoga  – each of which can be taken independently of the others.
