Contemplative Yoga

This specially designed, all accessible Contemplative Yoga practice will take place in the beautiful circa 1810 greenhouse at Oatlands in the winter months.  In warm weather, the class is held in the breathtaking garden.  Each session will include asana (postures), yoga nidra (deep relaxation), pranayama (breathing) and meditation (seated or walking) including a meditative walk in the historic garden.  Contemplative Yoga will focus on the essence of Yoga:  the complete practice of the Eight-Fold Path in order that we may be more fully awake and engaged in our everyday lives.

“Without pranayama, asana produces only health. Without asana, pranayama's benefits cannot be sustained and integrated into the body, and without asana and pranayama, meditation is a toothless tiger.” Gregor Maehle

Thank you for your vision for yoga at Oatlands, Andrea... though it was chilly the bright sun and emerging springtime made the cold temps bearable.  People love practicing in the Greenhouse!
