Ultimate Surrender

  • Iyengar Yoga Hawaii 190 Kamehameha Avenue Hilo, HI, 96720 United States (map)

Abhinivesa is the tendency of all humans to cling to life out of our instinctual fear death. How can yoga help us make peace with our own mortality? Join us for a thoughtful exploration of the intersections between surrender in our yoga practice and the Ultimate Surrender, when life comes to an end. In this workshop, we will explore:

• The concept of samadhi (absorption in bliss) and how it relates to the ending of life as a human being.

• The concept of vairagya (renunciation) and how working with it can help you progress in your practice.

• The art of savasana (corpse pose) in order to create deep and lasting feelings of peace with the mystery of life and death.

• Pranayama (yoga breathing practice) to facilitate deep relaxation and connection with the divine self within the individual.

Cost: $30 in advance, $40 same day
