Compassion Practice in Yoga - with Karin van Maanen
How can we bring the active intention of compassion into the way we practice and teach yoga, and apply principles of compassion training into our work and daily lives? This can enrich our relationships with ourselves and others, prevent “compassion fatigue” and burn-out.
Karin studied the neurology of compassion as part of her MSc in Mindfulness Studies and has explored the application of this extensively in secular and Buddhist mindfulness and embodiment training. The training will mainly be practical and experiential. More background on the research of compassion will be explored in the June module.
