Class: Daily Morning Amrit Yoga Asana Sequence
The Amrit Yoga Asana Sequence is a powerful yoga practice that teaches the practitioner how to connect, step by step, with the original source and purpose of yoga - which is to use physical yoga postures as a vehicle for entering the timeless state of being. The practice combines dynamic postures that fully engage body and mind with deep, meditative stillness - bringing the active and receptive energies in the body into balance. In this class, we will experience the level I Amrit Sequence which is specifically designed to raise the energy level in the body, to develop one-pointedness, and begin the practice of entering the deepest states of meditation while in yoga practice.
