I am honoured to be asked to teach at the the Circle of Knowledge and Practices Conference (October 5-6th, 2017, Winnipeg) hosted by the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre. As a gathering for discussing approaches to Indigenous education, honouring First Nation culture, and ensuring student success, a piece of that puzzle is drawing attention to the self-care of educators and leaders. Learning to take care of ourselves is the first step to learning how to take care of others, and yoga or any other awareness practice can play a pivotal role in cultivating physical, mental and spiritual health. I will be leading two breathing (pranayama) workshops on the morning of October 6th. As a simple, accessible form of yoga, breathing practices can be a way to work with anxiety, stress, insomnia, and depression. Basic breathing practices are easy to learn and to incorporate into day-to-day routine.
Join me this fall for Breathing Through: Traditional meditation techniques applied to a modern life.
In this four-week workshop series, we will explore the subtler aspects of yoga through an immersion in traditional breathing (pranayama) and awareness (anapanasati) techniques. Take the opportunity to work intimately with the breath and discover how these practices can expose another layer of insight found on both the yoga mat and the meditation cushion.
In addition to guidance and practice of the techniques, each session will include a short talk on yoga philosophy and time for questions.
After completing this workshop series, you will have the tools to cultivate your own breathing/meditation practice, so as to continue your exploration of how these simple but effective techniques can flourish in your everyday life.
Practising in the stillness and tranquility of the morning is the ideal time for cultivating mindfulness, stability and a deeper capacity for compassion. Join me in exploring this path towards the heart of yoga.
