The Mind Oasis Yoga Immersion presents age-old practices translated for the modern human. It’s designed to keep (or get) you healthy and whole as a being working out your purpose in this lifetime.
In this immersion, you’ll learn:
Real self-care (rooted in Ayurvedic science) to invite radiant health and vitality;
Yoga postures from basic to intermediate (child’s pose to balancing poses);
Pranayama (breath) practices to engage the subtle body;
Anatomy of the physical and energetic bodies;
Buddhist philosophy handed down through master teachers;
Alignment and anatomy principles to better understand how you move (and how to keep you moving!), and
How to incorporate sacred practice to experience spirit in your life.
You will learn about different paths of yoga and have the opportunity to practice various styles from numerous master teachers including those deeply-trained and well-practiced in Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Bhakti, Iyengar, iRest, Anusara and many other yoga traditions. The system of yoga is both deep and broad and this immersion will help you to discern the best path forward based on your constitutional nature. Learning and practice go hand-in-hand to create an immersive yoga experience with the Mind Oasis community to support you as you dive deep.
The Yoga Immersion experience includes 8 hours of classes each week as part of the curriculum content.
Additionally, you will receive an All Access pass to all Mind Oasis yoga classes, meditation series, and workshops to attend during the Immersion.
This opportunity to enrich your practice and your entire life is priceless.
The curriculum includes:
One evening per week (2 hours) dedicated to breaking down yoga postures and understanding your own physical body more deeply;
One evening per week (2 hours) dedicated to yoga philosophy, subtle body concepts (e.g., chakras and koshas), and Ayurveda (the sister science of yoga);
One evening per week (1 hour) dedicated to Buddhist philosophy, plus a yoga session so gentle a snail could do it; and
Saturday and/or Sunday mornings (2 hours) dedicated to weekly Master Classes and diving deep with our stellar line-up of rockstar teachers.
It is recommended that you commit to attend these sessions each week, as well as making space for daily practice with Mind Oasis yoga and meditation classes (or your own home practice).
In this way, you become truly immersed in the yogic lifestyle over these three months.
Michael Hewett will lead you through weekly yoga asana and philosophy sessions that are carefully curated for the needs and desires of the group.
Joseph Schwartz will teach functional movement principles based on human anatomy and body mechanics. His expertise is rooted in science and tested with hundreds of clients over his career as a physical therapist and movement educator.
Karuna, Founder of Mind Oasis, will impart the wisdom she has received through studying ancient Buddhist lineage-based teachings and incorporating these practices deeply into her own life and work.
Yoga is all about union. These masters of their craft, together with the excellent contributing teachers of the Mind Oasis Yoga Immersion, exemplify the way of the yogi and will lead you to experience true integration of your practice within your life.
