with Satya Greenstone, E-RYT 500
The goal of meditation is to realize the True Self, which is felt when we awake to our True Nature—a state of permanent peace and happiness. Meditation is the portal to this experience.
The Yoga practices you’ll explore in this weekend are designed to bring a state of equanimity and balance. Each has a unique purpose of either preparing you for or deepening your meditation experience, with the objective of establishing or strengthening a regular, meaningful meditation practice:
- Asana: physical postures to keep the body supple and strong, reduce tension, and to establish a comfortable meditation posture
- Pranayama: breathing practices to regulate energy and thoughts
- Mantra Japa: Mantra repetition that stimulate focus and love
- Yoga Nidra: Relaxation to calm the mind and body
- Restorative Poses for breath awareness and relaxation
- Meditation techniques that ease mental obstacles
I feel renewed and inspired. Thank you to Satya for the wonderful workshop and to Yogaville for providing the opportunity.—Elizabeth McGonagle
Satya held such a large healing and supportive space for us. She teaches from the heart and leads me to my heart while “sneaking” lots of “academia” in under the radar. When you fully show up, and sometimes just barely at that, you’re blessed with knowledge, support, and growth.—Past Participant
Satya gets two thumbs up and five stars. She is approachable, friendly, caring, available, and genuine. Her love and knowledge of Gurudev’s teachings are apparent and appreciated.—Past Participant
Official times for check-in: 4 pm and check-out: 2 pm
