is a senior teacher with Prajna Yoga and has her own studio, Valley Yoga, in Visalia, Calif. She is also trained in Thai Yoga therapy/massage. Brenda has searched deeply into her practice during difficult times and uncovered unexpected treasures she holds as precious and sacred.
The word Prajna means insight and understanding from within. The word prajna suggests an insight or understanding that is not simply intellectual but involves an embodied, cellular knowing. In this week-long immersion we combine the powerful techniques of asana and pranayama with the clear and poignant teachings of the Buddha dharma. We use asana to strengthen the body and dharma study to gain insight into the mind, heart, and emotional body. This process requires sensitivity, listening, and a capacity to intimately connect with what is happening.
