Limitlessness Through Binding – the 5s of Yoga with Mara Healy

Saturday 5/12 10:00am-4:30pm

Location: Be Yoga Carmel

Sign Up Now!

Yoga is a spiritual practice cleverly disguised as a physical workout. Do it for your body and you will get fit.
But do it for your mind, and your body automatically follows expanding the experience beyond your current physical capacity.
This session is about discovering the link between your physical and subtle body, and between your mind layers and the layers of the universe.
We will explore methods for binding the 5 senses and 5 main body parts in practice. You will understand the 5 binds of the mind, and how they relate to the five elements of the universe influencing 5 different states of awareness. By gaining deeper knowledge, you will create a safe harbor for physical practice and learn how to control the trajectory of your practice.

Investment: $75 for one and $135 for both the 3s of Yoga (in January) and the 5s of Yoga
