Humans are creative beings. Beyond the mundane experiences that we produce on a day to day basis, we strive to create as a mechanism to both express who we are and live life to its fullest. And yet, those desires may never come to fruition. Our dreams and aspirations are often held captive to deeply held patterns of thought, word and deed known in yoga as samskaras.
Join Jeanmarie for a weekend of asana, meditation and workshop dedicated to a deeper understanding of creating from the standpoint of the philosophy of yoga; a peek into the mind and how it works; the importance of meditation and mindfulness in creating; and how to apply these practical tools to more effectively and actively create in your life.
Jeanmarie Paolillo is a senior teacher, teacher trainer and mentor at Yoga Works in New York City. She leads trainings and workshops on asana, the philosophy of yoga, meditation and mindfulness, and the energetic body internationally. The fundamental purpose of yoga for Jeanmarie is learning to be present in the moment. She lives in the passionate belief that all things in life are possible and that manifestation requires an understanding that everything is the culmination of our thoughts. The journey of yoga leads the practitioner to a place of awareness regarding the life they are creating so they can consciously create their lives – as evidenced by her own leap from the corporate world after 20 years. She is known for her strong vinyasa classes that emphasize alignment as a tool for mindfulness, truly meditation in motion. Through a combination of asana, pranayama, visualization and meditation mixed with a great sense of humor, Jeanmarie strives to bring what she has learned to others while receiving lessons from those she teaches. Jeanmarie has been featured in Natural Health Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Yoga Journal and has appeared on Weddings.com and the CBS Morning Show. She is part of the Expert Network for Greatest.com and a featured contributor to The Daily Love. She holds a B.A. in Psychology from Indiana University and is in the process of completing studies toward a Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology (May, 2013). Her first book, The Vibe-a-Thon, will be released in September, 2013.
