Adding Breath and Posture to Your Practice
With Mary Reilly Nichols
The revelation that the human body can serve as a springboard to a fully embodied, heartfelt enlightenment is one of the greatest gifts of India’s timeless contemplative traditions. For millennia, techniques of postural alignment and breath regulation have been developed and refined as a pragmatic means for cultivating steadfast, vitalizing inner peace in the midst of change.
Come join Nalanda Institute core faculty Mary Reilly Nichols in this special three-session course, using Vedic, Tantric and global wisdom sources, to experiment with easy and effective methods of meditative training that anyone with a body and breath can access.
Session One: Posture, Attitude and Mood
Understanding and exploring how and why traditional postural modifications provide support for mental clarity, balance, creativity and flow.
Session Two: All About Breathing
Explore centering breath practices taught in diverse wisdom traditions to deepen and expand natural pathways to luminous wellbeing and intuitive wisdom.
Session Three: Everyday Ecstasy and Bliss
Using body and breath as contemplative tools, learn to weave transcendent wisdom and compassion into your daily routines to create a life of embodied, boundless joy and love in the world.
