A Workshop of Awakening
Saturday, February 17, 2018
1:00 – 4:00 pm
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral
147 NW 19th Ave.
Portland, OR 97209
Awaken your inner channel of spirit through a yogic encounter with St. Francis of Assisi. Internationally renowned yoga therapist and trainer Mirka Scalco Kraftsow will guide participants in a gentle engagement with the prayers and witness of St. Francis, using the inner yoga of body prayer, guided meditation, and pranayama to open the heart to God.
Born and raised in Italy, Mirka blends a lifelong devotion to the Christian saints with advanced training in the yoga sutras, movement, psychology, and meditation. Mirka has studied with some of the great yoga masters of our time, including TKV Desikachar and Gary Kraftsow, with whom she co-founded the American Viniyoga Institute.
Mirka has trained hundreds of yoga teachers and yoga therapists around the world. Now based in Sebastopol, California, she leads retreats, seminars, and workshops in the United States and Europe, including semi-annual yoga pilgrimages to Assisi. Her teaching balances experience with intuition, tradition with creative innovation.
No experience with yoga is necessary for this workshop. This will primarily be an encounter with “Inner Yoga” – using conscious relaxation, simple body movement and guided meditation. Please bring a mat, blanket, and/or pillow – whatever you might need to feel comfortable while lying on the floor.
