Buddha's Boot Camp: Meditate Together Online with Gina Caputo
Buddha's Boot Camp is about getting your TUSH on the CUSH! In other words, finding a regular seated meditation practice workable. Most of us were taught that meditation was about "quieting your mind" or were told to "empty your mind", which makes mediation feel like an exercise in futility. What if that wasn't exactly it? And it was more about cultivating the inner witness and observing? In this week-long online course, we'll explore mindfulness via illuminating lecture to demystify the practice and a group sit. The meditations will happen live with Gina Caputo in our private Facebook Group but will also be available for any sit you miss or if the schedule doesn't quite work for you. Live attendees will be able to engage and ask questions too. The first Sunday session is all the practicals and preparation for the week. Then, each morning we'll be together for approximately 1 hour for a combination of discussion, simple movement and sitting in meditation.
Tuesdays: Jan 23 - Feb 6

Most yoga students seek a teacher who is "real", can candidly share their experiences, is accessible, and able to motivate them to go further in their practice. Gina Caputo, ERYT 500, will inspire you to be just that teacher for your students.
Gina has a wonderful way of putting you at ease while simultaneously getting you fired up to inspire others through your teaching! In this Course, you'll discover:
