Yoga and Meditation Joey Robinson

Yoga Kula Joey Robinson Yoga Meditate

Yoga without meditation is like food without salt, coffee without caffeine, summer without swimming – something essential is missing. While asana alone is a powerful tool, combining it with meditation gives us access to a much deeper experience of PRESENCE.

For anyone interested in exploring ‘what’s next?’, this workshop offers an introduction to meditation and a taste of its transformative potential. For teachers, this workshop acts as continuing education, offering insight into how to incorporate meditation into a class and the individual poses and sequencing required to prepare students for prolonged sitting.

The many benefits of meditation have been extensively researched over the last decade.
To name a few, it has been shown to:

  • decrease depression
  • regulate and improve mood and anxiety disorders
  • reduce stress and anxiety
  • increase grey matter concentration in many areas of the brain
  • improve focus, attention, the ability to function under stress, information processing, learning, memory, self-awareness and decision-making
  • fosters creativity
  • affects gene that control stress and immunity
  • reduce blood pressure
  • decrease cellular level inflammation and inflammatory disorders in general

This list could go on much longer.

While there are numerous types of meditation, this workshop presents the practice of Heartfulness Meditation, a simple practice that invites us to connect to the space of our hearts. Over time, this practice strengthens the connection between our neocortex and
our limbic system, neurologically uniting our cognitive experience with our emotional perception. From thinking to feeling...is this the path to love?

This practice requires no previous experience with meditation.

Regular meditators are invited to experience the difference.

2 hours of asana.

30 minutes of Heartfulness meditation.
