Meditation by Donation


This class is taught by:

Marianne Linn

Born and raised in Germany, Marianne discovered the seeds of yoga, meditation and bodywork while traveling extensively in Asia. She has been studying and practicing yoga and meditation for over 20 years. In 1994, she was certified with the Sivananda Vedanta Yoga Society in Austria and continued her studies in the Iyengar and Astanga Vinyasa traditions, completing the teacher-training program at the Iyengar Institute in San Francisco. Marianne has been a student of Shandor Remete for over ten years and his Shadow Yoga greatly influences her practice and teaching. Her study of T'ai Chi and Qi Gong has also deepened her awareness of and connection to the presence of the universal life force energy. Marianne’s asana teachings draw from the essential elements of many great teachers such as Shandor Remete, Ana Forest, Andre Lappa, Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley, Doug Keller, S.N.Goenka and Adyashanti, as well as from her own experience as a Bodyworker and from her study of the Nature of Mind.

Marianne’s classes provide a supportive and light-hearted atmosphere where students are encouraged to learn to explore the harmonics of postural alignment and the connection between body, breath and mind. At the beginning of the month Marianne creates and offers a new vinyasa sequence, where one's focus on transitions, the "going in to" and "coming out of" a posture is as important as being in the posture. The practice becomes a meditation in motion. Marianne designs her classes with experienced beginners and intermediate level students in mind, although beginners and all sincere students are welcome. Marianne has been a certified Bodywork Practitioner since 1996. She offers Shiatsu, Therapeutic Thai Massage, Deep Tissue, Chi Nei Tsang, Prenatal Massage, and On-Site Chair Massage. Marianne is also available for Somatic Yoga Therapy and Private yoga coaching sessions.

 

 

We begin with easy mindful movements to warm-up and prepare the body for sitting.
The seated meditation practice will be about 30 minutes in length and may include guided Pranayama (breathing exercise), guided meditation, inquiry, and simply sitting in silence and presence.

Whether you are new to the practice of meditation or a seasoned practitioner, this donation-based class offers practices that induce calm and clarity to the mind and open the heart. The practice of meditation is a tool to get to know ourselves, an opportunity for expanding into a greater intelligence and for seeing who we truly are and what is truly here, beyond our stories and our felt sense perceptions.

Come and join us in a group of like-minded souls to build connection to and to enrich one's own experience of aliveness.

Class is Donation based: You give from your heart whatever you can. Suggested donation is $10, and is given as a guide. Feel free to pay more if you can and less if you need to.
