Yoga’s Qualities of the Heart: Kindness, Compassion, Empathetic Joy and Equanimity

The brahma viharas are qualities of the heart recognized in Yoga and in Buddhist practice. Brahma vihara means “divine abode.” The brahma viharas are seen as places we can live, places we can come from—qualities of mind and heart we can practice and cultivate. This course will introduce you to practices that cultivate each of the brahma viharas—kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity—and will give you the tools to weave these qualities into your life.

Fees: $115 for the 7-week course

Location: Mindful Yoga Collective, 223 South 700 East, Salt Lake City
