Lifestyle Immersions

So you’ve done enough yoga to know that it helps your body feel better and it somehow helps you to relax. That’s great! Finding practices that work for you is priceless and you’ve already changed your life for the better. AND know there’s also the possibility of so much more.

What you’ve learned to do on the mat, you can learn to do in your life as you walk through your day, every day, through the easy times and more importantly through the times that are more challenging. The key is understanding the mechanics of the simple and powerful methods that are inherent in your yoga practice on the mat. Allow Penny to guide you through the process of building the knowledge and skill needed to bring these tools to your daily life.

We behold what we are, and we are what we behold. ~ Bhagavad Gita

Kusum Life Immersion Programs meet four weekends over the course of 3-4 months. Each weekend we meet Fridays 5:00pm-8:00pm and Saturdays 9:00am-4:00pm with a one hour lunch break. Each weekend we will have a traditional yoga class with appropriate modification for all levels. The rest of our time will be spent in presentation, discussion and journaling/contemplation as well as led nonverbal experiences to help us absorb this information on multiple levels.

In addition to the ideas, discussions and practices presented each gathering, you will also leave each weekend with a self-developed plan for daily practice and study to live between meetings. The individualized plans are designed to facilitate real and lasting integration of the physical, mindset, spiritual and lifestyle principles that we examine. In addition, each participant is welcome to meet with Penny for help applying these principles to their specific situations. The results? Powerful shifts in body, mind, and spirit.

Kusum Life Immersion 2

Expand into Your Energy and Inner World
Over time we begin noticing the greater degree of quietness created in our lives by our understanding and our practices. Then, we naturally become more aware of and curious about what’s present in that quiet. Immersion 2 is about learning to more predictably create the feel of our own lives and understand that this is a skill-based process of learning to shift our bodies and minds. Learn the anatomy of our energy body and how to follow the movements of Prana/Chi/Spirit/Life as a sensory experience in both our bodies and lives through ancient methods as we develop our relationship with our own intuition. We will deepen our practice of the inward meditative forms of Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Yoga while building skill with Yoga Nidra guided meditation, seated meditation and breathwork (pranayama).
