Free Your Mind, Free Your Practice

Think you can’t meditate because:
- your mind is too busy?
- you don’t have time?
- it stresses you out?
This is the series for you.

In this series, you will develop a meditation practice that fits your lifestyle. Teachers, you will learn how to incorporate meditation into your classes. You will leave with tools to meet your experience more easily and manage stress on a daily basis.

Join Heidi and dive into the transformative qualities of Pragmatic Dharma. Her expertise is combining psychology, meditation, and yoga to help you unwind the habits that keep you stuck in your practice and in your life. You will learn how to stop using your practice to control or get rid of your mind. And instead, use your practice (meditation and asana) to develop a natural, inspired relationship with yourself. You will learn simple, practical tools from traditional wisdom and modern psychology to balance the meditative aspects of seeing clearly what is happening in the moment and creating an internal experience that is more of what you want and need. Once you embody these practices, you will intuitively know how to choose your intent for your practice (meditation and asana) and your day.

You will learn:
***That you don’t need to run from or fix your internal environment
***To bring meditation into your asana practice and daily life
***To embody traditional meditation techniques within asana
***To consider differences between traditional styles of yoga and meditation and practice for the 21st century
***The difference between what it feels like to use yoga to fix yourself versus yoga practice to move forward on a spiritual path
***How to develop and choose a meditation practice that’s right for you
