Meditation Revealed
With Bernie Clark & Nathalie Keiller

You can choose from one of upcoming offerings:

   May 15th-22nd, 2016
   November 13th-20th, 2016
   February 19th-26th, 2017
   November 12th-19th, 2017

Held at the Semperviva Yoga Studios - Vancouver, B.C., Canada

This course will examine what meditation is, why we do it and how to do it, from a variety of viewpoints: From Eastern Yogic and Buddhist views to Western Psychotherapeutic understanding. The course will include personal, one-on-one training in Deep Meditation, as well as group instruction, to give the student an experiential basis for the practice of meditation. Students will be expected to meditate twice daily by themselves. Knowing why meditation works, and the range of benefits we can receive from meditation, helps to motivate us to establish and keep a regular daily practice. Knowing the obstacles that may arise during the practice will help us to be more vigilant, and to take things as they come. This course will be a balance of theory and praxis helping you to establish a solid meditation practice.

This course is limited to only 20 students!

The Lodge as viewed from Daisy Lake       The 2016 Yin Yoga Teacher Training & Retreat Intensive will take place at the end of June/early July. This is a perennial favourite! The location is fantastic, the people wonderful and all that Yin Yoga! This retreat is designed for students who have been practicing Yoga for at least one year and want to deepen their understanding of the practice. Prior experience in Yin Yoga is not required. You do not have to desire to become a Yoga teacher, but you are expected to have a passion for Yoga. The facility is limited, so attendance is limited, which is why it is always sold out months in advance.
