Harmonizing Citta: The Heart-Mind Field

Available worldwide

The guiding theme for this vinyasa practice by Mara Branscombe is the integration of mental clarity and emotional health. The term “Citta” in Sanskrit is loosely translated as the “mind.” Citta is also referred to as consciousness and a kind of energy field that records our life experiences.

When we can begin to observe our citta while we are practicing yoga, we begin to witness ways of being that serve us and ways that limit us. Through awareness, breath, and movement, we can choose to let go of the limitations, and choose to illuminate our best self. The essence of this practice is to cultivate positive citta (consciousness) and mental clarity as a pathway to illuminate our hearts and minds.

We will engage in a sweet, slow, and deep flow series while we practice the art of being the witness to citta and clean inner landscapes with breath and controlled focus/drishti.

Nice clear instructions with a little bit of everything woven in. I'm working on taking a slower pace with my practice, and this was great for integrating body, mind and breath. Perfect for an evening practice!

Mara, I always enjoy your practices, and this one is no exception. Thank you so much for this slow, delicious movement meditation! I loved the Garudasana to Ardha Chandrasana transition. Namaste.

Namaste, and thank you for this lovely slow flow. (I also loved that eagle to half moon transition.)
I would welcome a longer practice with the same vibe.

The breathing exercises at start of class were long - the actual asana portion of class was a little short for me. Nonetheless, the sequence and pace was perfect and allowed for me to breathe and sink into the poses. Modifications offered along the way so that there was something for everyone. Plentiful reminders to come back to the breath and heart. I loved the eagle-to-half moon transition! Thanks, Mara.

Honestly, this was a bit more challenging than I expected. It was well worth it though, and it will leave you feeling at peace by the end! Thank you!

This was done very well ! Thanks Mara ! I was able to easily follow thru and the voice/tone was also calming.

I always enjoy when instructors go beyond asana to incorporate some of the other limbs of yoga. I loved the slow, deliberate pace.
