Incorporate strength and cardio training into your yoga practice with HIIT Yoga. This class is structured with a 15 minute warm up, 30 minutes of high intensity postures and flow, and 15 min of cool down. Expect a faster pace and lots of repetitive movements to target both large muscle groups and smaller, stabilizer muscles. Modifications will be demonstrated throughout the practice to make this class accessible to all levels. Strength training is crucial for maintaining and enhancing a healthy bone structure. Increasing the heart rate strengthens the heart and promotes efficient circulation.

"Demo Rinpoche - Chekawa's 7 Point Mind Training": Jewel Heart Tibetan Buddhist Center.

  community member   < less

The basis for experiencing happiness and suffering lies in our own mind. Ironically, being solely concerned with one's own happiness actually leads to dissatisfaction and many other forms of mental pain and discomfort. The Seven Point Mind training offers methods to transition from a habitual perspective of self-centeredness to one that cherishes others more than oneself. Demo Rinpoche will guide through a weekend retreat on the practice.
Memorial Day Weekend Online Teaching:
Saturday, May 23 - 10:00am - 5:00pm
Sunday, May 24 - 3:00 - 5:00pm
NOTE: Demo Rinpoche will give the 11:00am Sunday talk

This class focuses on breath work to clean and cleanse the lungs. It also blends techniques of Vinyasa, Yin, and Hatha, alternating between holding and flowing through postures. Holding postures will allow the muscles to relax, and the deep connective tissue to be gently stretched, while flowing from one posture to the next will help to increase strength and balance. This class will help to tone muscles and increase flexibility, reduce stress, keep joints and bones healthy, and will create an overall improvement in one's mental and physical health.

 7-8:15 p.m. 

Canceled: "Sacred Cacao Ceremony": Verapose Yoga & Meditation House.

  community member   < less Sacred Cacao

Drinking sacred cacao in ceremony is considered spiritual medicine by many indigenous cultures around the world. As we sit together in a small group and consume this sacred beverage, practice mindfulness, participate in guided meditation with intention in a backdrop of sacred sound, our soul is nourished, our heart opens and we experience greater spaciousness. It is a time for deep reflection and connection. The sacred cacao is prepared with intention, prayer and love.
Group size limited to 10 participants. Pre-registration required.
Please arrive 10 minutes early, and bring a meditation cushion an optional shawl/blanket. Fast 3 hours prior and arrive hydrated. Class is upstairs.
Facilitated by Victoria Schon.
Verapose Yoga & Meditation House, 3173 Baker Road, Dexter. $25. victoria@veraposeyoga.com www.veraposeyoga.com/events [map]
