A very simple definition of consciousness is the state of being awake and aware of ones surroundings. When we practice asana, we are practicing presence as we move and breath on our mats, and this is just the beginning of that journey. Over the course of this 4 week series, Kristen will lead a conversation about what it means to live our lives as yogis off of the mat - how to practice presence in our everyday lives, how to raise our vibration, and different ways to live with intention for the sake of finding more peace and joy within ourselves, and our communitites. Each session will include a meditation, and action steps (soul work!) to practice week to week. We will also explore the six qualities of consciousness - Chit (wisdom) Svatantrya (freedom) Purnatva (perfection) Kula (sacred community) Shri (abundance) and rahasya (concealing and revealing) Come with an open heart, and expect transformation!
