Personal Transformation Through Yoga
This 6 month study program is designed for students who want to take their practice beyond what can be explored in a drop in yoga class. We will work with yoga tools and philosophy to deepen your understand of all that yoga has to offer and explore how you can intergrade it into your life in a deeper way
Class will meet one Sunday a month for 3 hours (May through November, no class in August) and will include handouts, guided meditations, journal/self inquiry prompts, and home practices to deepen your experience of the material we cover in class.
Some topics include:
Finding your ethical ground through the Yamas and Niyamas,
Working with Chakras and the energy body,
Exploring meditation through mindfulness and self-inquiry, and
Utilizing ritual and a basic understanding of sequencing asana to develop a home practice.
All of these practices work together toward the ultimate goal of helping us move beyond our conditioning into a direct experience of our highest potential- who we really are and what is really important to us.
This series is taught by Kim Tull-Esterbrook, current Owner of Whole Life Yoga Studio. Kim is trained through the 500 hour level and uses yoga as a tool to help her know and understand herself and the world more fully. She has found that yoga, as a practice, helps her move with courage and grace through all the beautiful and challenging things she finds through that searching. She is drawn to the deeper tools of practice and she tries to infuse her asana classes with the richness of the other limbs of yoga. She is drawn to mediation, and is currently in training with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach. She delights in ritual and play, and feels incredibly blessed that her path has led her to the viniyoga tradition.
