Practicing Pratyahara: Blindfold Yoga + Blind Wine Tasting
with Jenn Felts
Saturday, November 19
Practicing yoga with blindfolded has a huge impact on the rest of your senses. Without external distractions, you’ll have the opportunity to bring awareness inward. You’ll feel your balance being challenged as you remove visual references and you’ll also feel the rest of your senses become deepened and refined.
Jenn Felts will lead you through a 75-minute single shot style practice featuring all of the Y2 postures you know and love…blindfolded! This experience will be exciting, challenging and enlightening.
After the practice we’ll keep the blind theme going and challenge your sense of taste with a blind wine tasting. The tasting will be led by our wine director at Namasty Kitchen.
In yoga philosophy,Pratyahara is translated as the “withdrawal from the senses.” In today’s over-stimulated world, sensory overload is a common problem. It’s more important than ever to experience the removal of certain senses in order to maintain the ability to turn inward and be with your inner self. Pratyahara practices lead to a profound state of relaxation, expanded self-awareness, and inner stability. They help us master both the body and the mind.
