Meditation at Semperviva Yoga
About this class
We will begin by learning how to sit. Sounds simple: it is simple, butunfortunately we make it difficult. We will discover the Path of Mindfulness and learn some of the basic tools to help build increasing awareness into our daily life. Many of the obstacles that we face in developing a mindful life will be discussed; these have been noticed by meditators for thousands of years. We will discover that our struggle with maintaining awareness is not unique. We will also be pointed in the direction of insight, also known in the Buddhist tradition as vipassana, a broad knowing or recognition of what is really going on in our life.Bernie Clark has studied many different styles of Yogaover the last decade and with many excellent masters:David Swenson and Tim Miller have guided his Ashtangajourney, Shiva Rea and Erich Schiffmann have inspired hisintermediate practice, while Sarah Powers and Paul Grilleyhave provided balance through their knowledge of YinYoga.
