The Knot Unties: Deepening the Embodiment of Yoga (Part 1)
Mar
23
12:30 PM12:30

The Knot Unties: Deepening the Embodiment of Yoga (Part 1)

In this three-part series, you will be guided in an experiential journey of the deeper and subtler aspects of yoga in support of growth and freedom, on and off the mat.

The series is structured around the granthis – a Sanskrit word meaning “knot” or “doubt.” In each session, we will explore one of the three main energetic knots and engage a holistic practice to support the release of energy bound in limiting structures and patterns.

Each practice will include a combination of yoga asana to unwind physical tension and revitalize corresponding regions of the body, as well as lecture on subtle body anatomy (chakras and koshas), relevant teachings from yoga philosophy and mythology, and guided meditation and insight-based inquiry.

Yin Revolution: An Evening for Women with Jeannie Zandi

Yin Revolution: An Evening for Women with Jeannie Zandi

The divine feminine has the power to transform, re-green and drench the arid with her sweet waters. Enjoy meditation, guided meditation, a talk and a time for exchange as we summon the lost and banished beauty and power of yin. Stand strong in deep trust of her voice as it speaks through you in fertile presence, soft strength and reverence for life. Restore the queen to her throne in your heart and let wisdom reign.

Jeannie’s gift for inviting people to join her in resting and rooted presence evokes a deep meeting with oneself and reality. Within that, her humor and iconoclasm serve to bring people into an understanding that is beyond the intellectual. Through silent and guided meditation, spontaneous talks, exchange, and at times experiential exercises, Jeannie will host a space of clarity and warmth where the true richness of life can be experienced and your innermost spiritual questions can be met fully.

Location: Nalanda West (Mahabodhi Great Room) | 3902 Woodland Park Ave N, Seattle 98103
Cost: $20; pre-registration not required for this event
