How can we shape the rough stones of our “imperfect” human lives, polishing them into diamonds that shine with love and compassion? The Six Perfections offer a way. This yoga series weaves Tibetan Buddhist compassion meditation (Tonglen) through a flowing 1000-year old sequence of yoga postures used to cultivate each of the “Six Perfections” of the Heart Sutra: generosity, kindness, patience, joyful effort, stillness, and wisdom. This wonderful practice helps us to nurture compassion for ourselves, our families and friends, even for those we don’t know, our enemies, and future generations. In this way, we work from the inside (with our thoughts and everyday actions), and we work from the outside (with asana and pranayama) to shift our awareness and transform ourselves. Come join us in this powerful heart-opening and healing yoga practice and meditation. Practice makes perfect!

Summer Bliss
Deep Relaxation through Yoga Nidra
A Workshop with Leza Lowitz

Sunday August 19, 5:00pm-7:00pm

yoganidraBeat the heat by chilling out! Yoga Nidra is a state of mind between wakefulness and sleep that opens deep recesses of the body/mind, inducing total relaxation. In savasana, you’ll be taken on a guided meditation, moving your awareness to different parts of the body to revitalize the subtle energy channels, relieving stress and fatigue from the physical body, heart and mind. This workshop will offer guided Yoga Nidra in the traditional form, moving awareness through eight stages–Internalisation, Sankalpa (intention), Rotation of Consciousness, Breath Awareness, Manifestation of Opposites, Creative Visualization, Sankalpa (Intention) and Externalisation. Come re-charge your batteries and rejuvenate yourself.

Level: Beginners-Intermediate (All Levels). NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.

This workshop is led in English with some Japanese.

Advanced Restorative Yoga Teacher Training Program with Leza Lowitz

restorative_yogafest2018_2The world today is a stressful place. It’s even more important than ever to find peace and acceptance within ourselves.
Restorative Yoga offers the perfect practice to cultivate and nurture a calm, tranquil core. As teachers, it’s the ideal practice to share with those who need a quiet practice to return to, to recharge their batteries and regenerate their life force.

We are pleased to offer our first ever Advanced Restorative Yoga Teacher Training program to build on skills and practices covered in our Basic RTTC.

Schedule
Friday October 5 5pm-9:30pm (4.5 hrs)
Saturday October 6 5pm-9:30pm (4.5hrs)
Sunday October 7 3pm-7:30pm (4.5hrs)
Monday/National Holiday October 8 9am-4:30pm (6.5 hrs + 1hr lunch time)

Join us for an intensive 20-Hour Advanced Restorative Yoga Teacher training that will give you deeper skills, wisdom, and confidence to continue share Restorative Yoga with others in a powerful, inspired way.

Sun and Moon’s Advanced Restorative Teacher Training Advanced program provides comprehensive content that builds on the Basic Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with all -new material to help you deepen your yoga and meditation practice, teaching skills, and spiritual development.

This course offers hand-selected content of new restorative yoga poses, meditation techniques and practices, and teaching skills to take your teaching to the next level. It also includes ample time for practice teaching and feedback to help you improve your teaching skills and delivery. An open heart and mind, and the desire to continue to learn, are the very things that help you become a great yoga teacher. Keeping a humble and hungry “beginner’s mind” is the key to evolving personally and professionally. We need to continually build upon our skills to deepen our own practice, and offer our students opportunities to go deeper into their practice, too.

We are very excited to offer this course to our graduates, who have been requesting it for years, and look forward to you joining us!
