The practice of yoga was developed some 5,000-10,000 years ago with a primary intention of preparing the body for sitting meditation practice. In keeping with this intention, Wendy will be offering an introductory class in the practice of Insight “Vipassana” Meditation, a mindfulness meditation practice which comes out of the Buddhist tradition as practiced in India and Southeast Asia. The class will meet on Friday mornings from 8:30AM-9:45AM and will run for six weeks from February 1st through March 8th. If your schedule allows, you may wish to come for the meditation class and stay for the 10:00AM yoga class which follows.
In keeping with Buddhist tradition, this meditation class will be offered freely. In lieu of a class fee there will be an opportunity to participate in the practice of “dana”. Dana is both a Pali word and a Sanskrit word meaning “generosity”. The practice of dana is a practice of giving from the heart in whatever amount feels appropriate.
If you are interested in this class please let Wendy know either by email at email@example.com or in person when you come to your next class.
