with Timothy Glen and Amar Atma Kaur

Sunday, November 18, 3:00 to 4:30 pm
Cost: $25 at the door

A Portion of the Proceeds will be donated to AWAKEN INC.

The Ancients of many traditions have taught us that through the sound current we are able to uplift our personal vibration and in doing so, attract people and circumstances that resonate with a higher vibratory energetic field.

Tim Glenn and Amar Atma Kaur will guide you into a transcendent experience in which you will bypass your thoughts and move directly into your heart center.

Bring a blanket and cushion, a water bottle and anything you might need to relax deeply into the healing sounds of crystal bowls, planetary gong and celestial voices.

MINDFULNESS MEDITATION WORKSHOP
Guided by Russell Persson
Sunday, November 25, 8 – 9:30 am
Cost: Donation of $1, $5, $10, or $20. 
To Register: Send an email to info@theyogacenterreno.com
Join Russell Persson for a 90-minute workshop focusing on mindfulness meditation and present moment awareness. He welcomes anyone new to the practice of meditation as well as experienced practitioners. This workshop is designed to help participants experience the benefits of present moment awareness and cultivate, through guided and silent meditation, loving awareness and the refinement of our innate abilities for concentration and stillness.

The workshop will include:

  • A short series of movements inspired by qigong to bring awareness to the physical body
  • A guided meditation with focus on the breath to cultivate concentration and compassion and to begin to see, with precision, our distractions and addictive thought patterns
  • Questions and discussion on our experience
  • A brief walking meditation
  • And a final silent meditation to end the workshop

Svaroopa yoga is based on a different paradigm from most yoga styles. These poses scientifically release tension in the deepest layers of your body, your spinal muscles, to decompress your vertebrae and discs while making space for your internal organs. This practice is the perfect way to de-stress and decompress after your Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
