Going Deeper (Series 1)

Online Class Series & Community

I am so excited to be offering this opportunity to create community, share the deeper practices of yoga both in and beyond the physical practice, and to provide this in an accessible way. I know many of you want to learn more, and go deeper with the practice, but getting to yoga workshops and trainings can be challenging in a busy schedule and expensive. I truly hope this offers a  way to deepen your knowledge with the support of community ~Jaime

Wondering if this might be right for you? If you have been practicing yoga long enough to feel comfortable with the physical postures, you know the basic poses, and are curious to deepen your knowledge of yoga, read on!

When I first began practicing yoga regularly in 2003, I fell in love almost immediately with the physical practice, and became curious about the philosophy and deeper practices that my teacher would sometimes mention. Two years into my practice I jumped into a 50-hour teacher training program. At the time I had no intention of teaching, I just wanted to learn as much as I could and the training fit in my schedule and in my budget.

 

Now I see in others that desire to deepen their practice, but the uncertainty of how to do it. Lets face it teacher trainings and intensive workshops can be hard to fit in around everything else, and can be a bigger investment than what you might be ready to make. Even a weekly class can be hard to commit to on a regular basis with travel, work, family schedules, and everything else in life.  

From my own experiences and from that desire I see in others, I was inspired to create this program, and am so excited to have the opportunity to share with all of you!!!

 

In this first series the focus will be on developing a deeper understanding, based on experiential learning, of the roots of the eight-limbed path of yoga. You all know that yoga is not just about physical exercise, but do you have a firm understanding of what makes it different? Do you want to be able to experience the benefits of yoga in a day to day basis? Facing challenges in life with a sense of peace and ease, and finding more joy in everyday life?

An exploration of the yamas, the ethical guidelines of yoga, in practice on the mat will give you the basis of taking those guidelines into your everday life to find more peace and joy.

I taught a similar semi-private series over the summer to a few students in Maine. Here is what they have to share about their experience...

Garrett V.

Belfast, ME

"Jaime Boswell has a superb knowledge of yoga, and I loved the class series I did with her on the yamas/niyamas.  Her understanding of mudras and how to open the bodymind make for a powerful experience for anyone interested in deepening their grasp of yoga.  But it's Jaime's kindness and compassion that stay with me now that our course is over.  One really knows when a yoga teacher has integrated the practices of yoga, because this teacher is unfailingly kind and patient.  Jaime Boswell is that kind of teacher.  I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to love yoga more."

Kaye Z.

Belfast, ME

"Jaime's class encouraged me to take the time to practice breath work and achieve yoga poses with humility and contentment.  Her slow methodical exploration freed me from ambition and judgment.  She showed me how to relax, listen to my body and she gave me the gift of yoga that extends far beyond the yoga mat."
