Mastering Your Life Force with Yoga and Meditation

Presented by Janine Banks

What we’ll do

Janine will guide us through a gentle yoga and meditation class with the emphasis on building our vitality and immunity at this time of a world pandemic. Practices will include some posture work, breathing, meditation, deep relaxation and some brief chanting. By the end of the class, everyone should be feeling balanced, calm and relaxed.

Of the three ethics of permaculture, we will be working with People Care.  Really, yoga and meditation can apply to everyone of the 12 principles, but I’ll just choose a couple. (With thanks to Looby Macnamara.)

1. Observe and Interact … What do I see and feel in myself; what’s my body feeling; what’s my intuition saying? What can I change?
2. Catch and Store Energy … What gives me energy? What activity would best suit this niche of time and space? Is my energy flowing or blocked? Would a regular yoga and meditation practice help to balance my energy levels?
9. Use small and slow solutions … Is there a small step in the right direction I could take today? Will regular yoga and meditation practice help me pace myself with improving my overall health and happiness?

Things to have ready at home for this class

We’ll be doing some work on the floor, if that is possible for folks. So have ready a mator thick blanket, unless there is a carpet you are happy to sit or lie on. A sturdy cushionis also a good idea. And depending on the weather, folks might like to have a blankethandy for the deep relaxation.

Folks are still welcome if they cannot get down to the floor as there will be parts of the session where just sitting or lying still will be important parts of the class. Something about yoga a lot of people don’t realize is that the posture work is to keep you healthy so you can meditate, the most important part, comfortably.
