Optimal Well-Being Through Yoga

Optimal Well-Being through Yoga is a 10 week program designed by Joseph & Lilian LePage of Integrative Yoga Therapy.  You will take your Yoga practice to the next level by cultivating healing (emotional, spiritual, physical) through self-awareness exercises, mudras & affirmations, pranayama, asana, yoga nidra, and meditation.

In this progressive session we'll explore all dimensions of our being, the physical body (Annamaya Kosha), the energetic body (Pranamaya Kosha), the psycho-emotional body, (Manomaya Kosha), the wisdom body (Vjnanamaya Kosha), and the bliss body (Anandamaya Kosha).

We'll experience energy flow and discuss how the subtle energy flows.


Each week we will explore a particular core quality or facet of healing.  Following each practice, participants are given a mudra, an affirmation, and access to a recorded meditation to practice at home.

We'll begin with the core quality of "New Possibilities" and end with "Purpose and Meaning".  Step by step, this session will bring you inward to tune in with your true self....helping to open you to understanding your Dharma (pursuing your truest calling).

CLASS RUNS January 8, 2019 - March 19, 2019 (no class February 12th).

FEE:  $150.00.  This is a progressive class, so no drop-ins allowed.
