BREATHE into life with Simone Clayborn

Pranayama has been source of both physical and psychological healing in my life. Prana refers to a basic, universal, all-pervading life force energy long recognized by eastern thought, which is now being more fully appreciated and studied by western science. Yoga practitioners all over the centuries have found that practicing pranayama or Yogic breath we can access this energy, harness and utilize its power. Yoga Breath is thus a wonderful key to good health, longevity and it is also a superb lead-in to meditation. Simone is finishing her Pranayama teaching certification through Yoga On High. 

Please join Wednesdays at 7PM (free/by donation) for a practical, step-by-step explanations about the practice of basic yoga breathing techniques.  

Fridays, 8-10:00am 
Intro to Ashtanga with Rachel Lee

Rachel Lee, a new yoga instructor finishing up her teaching certification at Yoga On High, will lead a Mysore-style Ashtanga class for new students. $5-7 suggested donation.

Wake Up Sangha - Community Mindfulness Practice 
Our monthly Sangha meetings consist of sitting meditation, walking meditation, a reading, and sharing from the heart. 
Wake Up is an active global community of led by young mindfulness practitioners, aged 18-35, and inspired by the teachings of Zen teacher and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh. We come together to practice awareness in order to take care of ourselves, nourish happiness, and contribute to building a healthier and a more compassionate society. All ages are welcome at our gatherings. 
Wake Up Columbus sessions are typically led by Claire W. based on the services of the Still Water Sangha of Orono, Maine. Claire is also currently supporting the growth of mindfulness community in Westerville, Ohio. More information will be posted here: wholeheartsanghaofwesterville.wordpress.com
“Feelings, whether of compassion or irritation, should be welcomed, recognized, and treated on an absolutely equal basis; because both are ourselves. The tangerine I am eating is me. The mustard greens I am planting are me. I plant with all my heart and mind. I clean this teapot with the kind of attention I would have were I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath. Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In mindfulness, compassion, irritation, mustard green plant, and teapot are all sacred.” - Thich Naht Hanh (1996)
