Lynne Minton: Teaching The Value of Samyama
November 9 – 11, 2018
The Value of Samyama
Samyama is a term that implies a level of mastery over what we choose to bring the focus of our minds upon and the effects of such a focus. Although it seems that the choices we have are infinite, the primary choice is always between what is of value and what is not. For a yogi, value is choosing that which brings about the transformation of mind from a divided, separate, chaotic state to a unified, peaceful and benevolent state.
Chitta prasadanam is one term for this benevolent state of mind. It requires awareness but is not difficult. In fact when done with ease, the whole process is relaxing and enjoyable, and with practice and commitment leads to the profound state of adhyatma prasadanam, manifestation of the light of divinity. Here fear and division melt away and we recognize our shared nature as indivisible mind and the ever extending spirit of love.

Lynne Minton has been a student of yoga since 1975. Her primary teachers have been BKS Iyengar, Geeta Iyengar, Judith Lasater, Donald Moyer and Fr. Joe Pererira.

She believes that yoga is for everybody and is passionate about inspiring students to discover new abilities through the practice of all of the 8 limbs of yoga. Her mission statement is to help herself and others to awaken joyful awareness through the practices of yoga; asanas that cleanse the body, pranayama that calms the mind, concentration that controls the senses, and meditation for realizing the Inner Self.
