Yin Yoga & The Four Foundations of Mindfulness
A Weekend Intensive

Jetzt anmelden

The practice of insight (vipassana) meditation is built upon the teachings of the Buddhist discourse, the Mahā Satipatthāna Sutta or The Four Foundations of Mindfulness.

The Foundations of Mindfulness form the bedrock of mindfulness meditation practice and are considered the domain of the meditator.

Our weekend of insight will encompass discussion on Buddhist theory, exploring and integrating in detail The Four Foundations of Mindfulness and vipassana meditation with the practice of Yin Yoga. Each of our sessions will include discourse and application of one of the foundations of mindfulness to our meditation and Yin posture practice, building systematically and progressively throughout the weekend. Through direct felt experience each practitioner will bare witness to insights capable of radically shifting how we engage with the mind, body and life itself.

These workshops are created for and are accessible to all levels of practitioners and geared specifically to anyone driven by an innate curiosity for insight into the enigma of life and a passion to move beyond the limitations of the conditioned mind.

Session 1: Contemplation of the Body
Session 2: Contemplation of Feeling
Session 3: Contemplation of Consciousness
Session 4: Contemplation of Phenomena

 

Whit Hornsberger (Vancouver, Canada) is a student and teacher of the wisdom traditions of Classical Yoga and Theravada Buddhism.

A former athlete, Whit found the path as a result of a career ending knee injury and the subsequent emotional and mental suffering inherent in losing one’s (supposed) self-identity and self-worth. His daily practice and teaching methods stem from the traditional practices of Vinyasa Krama (Krishnamacharya) and Buddhist meditation (Mahasi Sayadaw). A passionate advocate of traditional teachings, Whit expounds the ancient wisdom of these lineages in a relevant manner, making them readily accessible to students at every stage of the path.

A lover of surf, travel and nature, Whit teaches internationally, offering classes, international workshops, retreats and trainings.
