Held by the meeting of mountain & water, this immersion will explore the foundations of mindfulness within our yoga practice, applying an open investigation to that which is solid and that which is fluid. As mindfulness is the quality of being aware and not allowing the mind to be forgetful, this yoga immersion will foster how awareness expresses itself in posture and breath, feelings, consciousness and the capacity to surrender to the flow of Life.
In the Buddhist teachings, mindfulness is the first factor of enlightenment and its application is the means to freedom. Uniting movement and stillness, Amy offers a spacious, contemplative pace threading together a well-rounded sequence of standing, balancing, inverting poses, breathing and meditation practices.
Amy Cooper, E-RYT 500: teaching yoga since 1981 and a graduate of the Iyengar Yoga Institute in San Francisco, Amy is founding director of the Shasta Yoga Institute where she teaches and leads Yoga Teacher Training programs.
