I said to my soul , be still, and wait without hope

For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love

For love would be love for the wrong thing; there is yet faith

But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.

Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:

So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.

~ T.S. Eliott



 

Mira's Yoga and Meditation Offerings

Hot Vinyasa Yoga: In a room heated to 80°- 90°, students can more easily flow through yoga postures while cleansing toxins from the body and being encouraged by the heat - as muscles, ligaments, and tendons soften - to be more present to the sensations and the supportive rhythms of the breath.

Beginner Yoga: This class is for students who are new to yoga, have had an absence from yoga, or for students who prefer a slower pace.  Each posture is accompanied by specific verbal instructions and benefits. Breath awareness, mental concentration, and formal relaxation are also introduced in Beginner Yoga.

Restorative Yoga: All-Level class that focuses on increasing flexibility and relaxation.  Postures are held for a longer period of time, allowing breath, gravity, and the warmth of the body to gradually lengthen the muscles and loosen the connective tissue around the joints.  This class is a great complement to aerobic exercise and weight training.

Life-force Yoga™:  Prana, the Sanskrit word for life force energy, flows through all of us.  When it is freely moving and unobstructed, we experience our vitality, good health, and joy.  However, when it is sluggish, stuck, or blocked, it can result in life-depleting habits, stress, anxiety, and depression.   Life-force Yoga™, developed by Amy Weintraub, opens the body and mind, allowing prana to flow with ease.  Life-force Yoga™ opens and energizes the body and mind with specific breathing, chanting, movement, and meditation sequences and techniques that increase emotional balance and relieve the strains of daily life, and the symptoms of depression and anxiety.  Each class ends with deep relaxation and sharing.  This class is appropriate for beginners and all other levels.

Meditation Class: Meditation is an ancient spiritual practice that has been demonstrated in contemporary scientific research to have numerous physical, mental, and emotional health benefits. A daily meditation practice has been shown to increase mental concentration, focus, and clarity; decrease blood pressure and stress hormones in the body; increase self-awareness; balance the emotions; and produce a deeper sense of connection and well-being.  Each week in this mindfulness meditation class, we will learn and practice new skills including developing a relationship to the inner observer, quieting the ongoing chatter of the mind, working with internal obstacles and strong emotional states, being in the present moment, and experiencing greater self-compassion and acceptance. This class will provide the basic concepts and skills to develop an ongoing home practice.

Individual Sessions:  One session or a series of individual sessions may be scheduled to meet the specific goals and needs of the student in a more private setting,  Goals may include any of the following: increasing strength, balance, flexibility, endurance, stamina, self-observation, self-acceptance, self-compassion, equanimity, emotional balance, health or decreasing stress, anxiety, depression, symptoms of trauma, compulsions, or illness, and physical pain.
