FLSM’s Mindful Journey Yoga is an approach to yoga that incorporates meditation, asana and mindfulness skills while holding space for the transformative journey of life. Through holistic education which honors scientific and intuitive approaches to healing, creating a culture that invites exquisite care of self and others, and doing so in an atmosphere of joy, abundance, compassion, curiosity, and respect, Mindful Journey Yoga will give students the gift of transformational self study. Mindful Journey Yoga incorporates both ancient wisdom and modern methods. The roots of our school derive inspiration and guidance from traditional and modern teachings on mindfulness. We offer a 200 hours training built around yoga and meditation, right on the convenient Ithaca Commons, held over 6 intensive weekends.
Our approach to practice is simple, effective, contemplative and safe. Mindfulness Yoga can be taught to people of all ages, backgrounds, and experience.
In this training you will find inspiration, challenge, and tools to help you learn and grow both as a practitioner and as a teacher. The courses are very practical with clear theory supporting the practice. Through the contact hours you will undergo your own transformation that will give you a strong basis for teaching mindfulness, yoga, and meditation with confidence and poise.
