About the Yoga for Vipassana Meditators Special Course

During this Special Yoga Course we explore different techniques for sitting comfortably and straight over extended periods of time, without creating long-term back, knee or hip problems. For those meditation practitioners already suffering from injuries, we teach how to heal them with intelligent movements aligned positions and how to avoid "forcing" the body in the wrong direction.

The other aspect of the course deals with energizing and rejuvenating poses, and combining the Practice of Meditation with Relaxing Yoga Positions. These tools are very helpful for extremely busy people who cannot afford to spend several hours a day practising Vipassana in addition to a separate Yoga Practice.
