Description

Spring Equinox Meditation
with Steven Prestianni
Friday, March 16th, 7:30-9:00 pm

To Honor The Spring Equinox -
The Time When The Sun's Light
Is Given Equally To All People Everywhere -
12 Hours of Dark 12 Hours of Light -
We will sit in a Meditation Circle at
Awakening NY with gratitude to the Oneness.
Silently together, mixed with intervals of sound -
Singing Bowl and Gong, then Silent Again.
The Gathering Will End With a Chorus of Simple Mantra
For All To Share.
Many Blessings,
Steven Prestianni

***

Steven "Paz" Prestianni, a.k.a. Anandabhairava, began studying under the guidance of Sadguru Sri Mahayogi Paramahamsa, founder of the Mahayogi Yoga Mission, in 1996. He also had a definitive meeting with Swami Satchidananda, founder of The Integral

Yoga Institute, in 1988. Both schools profess the knowledge of Raja Yoga, the 8-limbed royal path, utilizing a classical form of Hatha Yoga for the third limb, asana (postures).

He instructs classes as he learned from Mahayogi, holding each posture for an extended period of time, focusing on the exact alignment for each individual dependent upon their present physical capabilities, focusing on a specific rhythmic breathing pattern, and focusing attentively with the eyes in each posture to acutely increase one's ability to concentrate. Every pose is then alternated with repose in savasana, the corpse, or rest pose.

The two hour class concludes with 15 minutes of Pranayama (breath control), and 15 minutes of silent meditation. The class operates as a one room school house, open to all levels, from first time beginners, to those highly advanced. Each will receive modifications appropriate to their level of practice.
