One Day Meditation Practice Intensive

Call for dates, 8:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Central Austin ($75)

Cost includes vegetarian lunch. Proceeds benefit SGRY and Austin Big Heart Yoga.

All levels of experience are welcome. This meditation practice intensive is offered in coordination with our larger Shambhava Yoga community based out of Colorado. Intensives are an opportunity for participants to engage in very deep practice for one full day. Local participants will work together with Swamis and Acharyas (experienced senior teachers of the Shambhava tradition) via video broadcast throughout the day. The structure includes meditation instruction, meditation practice, and opportunities to ask questions in large and small group settings. Silence is often observed during breaks. Each Intensive includes about 8 hours of practice. Seated meditation is sometimes alternated with walking meditation, discussion, hatha yoga, and kirtan (chanting of sanskrit mantras), providing variety throughout the day.



Introduction to Shambhava Yoga™ Meditation

Call for schedule,
private studio - address given upon registration ($15)

This introductory class explores how meditation can help you to handle stress, be more present and skillful in your daily life, and have a rich spiritual life.

Shambhava Yoga™ Meditation is rooted in the ancient tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, which sees the entire universe as a manifestation of divine consciousness, or Shiva.  Through regular whole-hearted meditation practice, we begin to see this divinity within ourselves and it shines in everything we do.

Shambhava Yoga Meditation practices are diverse yet simple, practical yet profound.  They begin on the cushion and in the heart, using breath and mantra to experience what lies beyond the mind.  With practice, this subtle awareness is cultivated in all life circumstances, bringing the light of consciousness with you everywhere you go.
