Meditation and Yoga For the Community
Led by Green College Residents Kosta Kushlev, Laura Nimmon, Brandon Miliate, Kieran Fox and Chanone Ryane
Graham House, Green College, UBC
February 26 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Green College is offering weekly yoga and meditation open to both residents and non-residents of the College. The workshops are designed to help community members find greater peace, happiness and balance in their lives. The yoga classes are led by experienced teachers who offer instruction in Iyengar and Vedic practice, thus providing a variety of ways to improve one’s strength, flexibility and balance. The yoga practice is complemented by meditation sessions during which we explore a wide spectrum of techniques of mental cultivation—from basic concentration on the breath (shamatha) to insight meditation (vipassana) including developing body awareness, gratitude and compassion for oneself and others.
