Lisa Booth: Live Your Life Fully through Yoga
Yoga philosophy describes our true nature as free, radiant, and vibrant. In this progressive 6-week program Lisa will combine the practical tools of many of the Yoga traditions to create an environment of healing for those seeking to live life fully.
According different Yoga traditions, those of us who are not living up to our full potential sometimes suffer from depression. The symptoms classified as depression (insomnia, exhaustion, anxiety, lethargy, eating/drinking in excess, doubt, feeling guilty, lacking confidence & purpose…to name a few) affect about 121 million people worldwide and are the leading cause of disability among people from the ages of 15 to 44.
Yoga places great value on development of the physical, mental, behavioural, emotional and spiritual with the goal of living life fully. Therefore, each 2-hour class will be designed in a multi-dimensional style with equal emphasis placed on the physical, energetic, mental, behavioural, and spiritual dimensions of being. The progression will use the 5 koshas (sheaths or bodies) as a way to better understand ourselves and the benefits of yoga. Each class will include some combination of: asanas (postures), pranayama, (breathing), bhavana (imagery), mudras (gestures), mantras (sound affirmations), yoga nidra (relaxation) and dhyana (meditation). This integrative approach to yoga is intended to create an environment that encourages self healing.
