Counterpose: The Art of Yoga & Meditation
Shambhala Mountain Center
November 10–12, 2017
Hidden within every yoga posture is a secret—the counter-pose. It protects, nurtures, and allows us to deepen our practice. In a yoga sequence, poses are balanced by companion postures, in the simplest form, their opposites. The job of a counterpose is to create equanimity, and agreement in the body/mind.
In this autumn weekend retreat we will immerse ourselves in the playful exploration of the counter-pose within the yoga and meditation practice, as well as practice aimless wandering and the four postures of meditation to help balance our active lives! Expect to emerge from the weekend with a rich understanding of the counter-pose through stillness and movement. By practicing this way we can then discover the relevance of the counter-pose in all areas and postures of our lives.
What We’ll Explore:
- Counter-poses in yoga & life
- Body oriented sitting meditation practice
- Walking meditation & aimless wandering
- Insight into one’s own nature
- Four postures of meditation
- Listening deeply to the body/mind
