Home Grown Practice

Workshop Description

There is no greater gift than having a daily home practice. A home practice is like having a life long confidant and friend. But how to grow a personalized self-practice tailored uniquely to you? This course helps establish a home practice ideal for your age, lifestyle, health history and structural limitations.

Meeting once a week, this immersion lays the foundation for you to build a consistent home practice weaving together meditation/contemplation, somatic movement, and yoga posture. To design a home practice, we take into consideration your Ayurvedic constitution, fatigue and stress levels, and diet. A rewarding practice is one that stays fresh and innovative, combining both dynamic and restorative practices. In this course we help you design a practice that will continue to evolve as you grow, age, and change through all transitions in your life. For teachers of yoga (and meditation), we believe that a home practice is a necessary ingredient for honing your skills as a teacher.
