The Yoga of Authentic Presence


  • EVOLVE Movement 219 Oberlin Road Raleigh, NC, 27605 United States (map)

This weekend of workshops will explore what it means to abide in the authentic presence, often called “the Self,” “Buddha nature,” or one’s “most essential nature.” Each session will include a talk that expresses this Absolute viewpoint, as well as an interweaving of the principles of Yoga and Evolutionary Astrology to more fully understand just how the experience of perceived limitation can welcome the freedom that is each person’s birthright. Each asana practice will be rich, full bodied, and rejuvenating, and will be the epitome of Yoga — a truly unifying experience.

Friday, October 27th from 7:30-9:30pm:: Soothe~

This full spectrum practice will tickle the sensibilities and delight the spirit. Using each of the senses as a gateway to the unified experience, participants will be led on a yoga journey that encompasses the full realm of embodied experience. A quieting energy will set the tone with grounding postures that include hip-openers, forward folds, and twists.

Sunday, October 29th from 12:30-4pm:: Unify~

The asana component will include standing postures, hip-openers and hand-balances, as well as a set of simple backbends, with calming postures to end the sequence.
