Take Me Higher, an exploration of the non-physical aspects of yoga with Jerome Burdi
This workshop will focus on the non-physical aspects of yoga such as pranayama, meditation, and kirtan. Through the use of these modalities the practitioner may connect to higher states of consciousness. These techniques have been used to harness the immense power we have inside each of us, allowing us to dissolve the boundaries we have built against becoming our true selves.
Pranayama techniques help us to connect our heart and mind, otherwise known as our fourth and sixth chakras, allowing us to get in touch with our intuition and the deep compassion we have for all beings. Kirtan activates the fifth chakra, our center for expression, creative communication and faith. In a world that wants us to be anything but ourselves having the ability to tap into that place of expression cultivates devotion, which brings joy and harmony within ourselves and with our practice.
When we tap into these higher states of being amazing life shifts occur. After we utilize the power of music and singing to activate our fifth chakra Jerome will guide practitioners into a yoga nidra meditation. Yoga nidra brings the body, mind, heart and spirit into that deep meditative place where healing may occur. It is said that one hour of yoga nidra is equal to a full night of sleep.
