Vinyasa Class with Live Music: Attention Outward and Inward with Tim Groen and Nirmal Chandraratna
Sunday, October 27 • 2:30–4:30 p.m.
Join the Yoga teachers Tim Groen and Nirmal Chandraratna for a 120-minute musical Yoga class. Enjoy a vinyasa-style class led by Tim, a Jivamukti Yoga and advanced-level Integral Yoga teacher, while Nirmal, a new IY teacher and a musician and kirtanist, leads the opening chants and provides meditative live music (with harmonium, cello, and vocals) throughout the class, which will help you turn inward as you practice. In Vinyasa Yoga the attention and breath provide the linking mechanism, and breath helps make actions more conscious. The class concludes with a blissful, 30-minute Yoga Nidra session with music. Includes Yoga: Intermediate/Advanced Students
