January Insight Meditation Series with Lora
Sundays 6-7pm (1/6, 1/13, 1/20, 1/27)
Learn the foundations of Buddhist Vipassana (Insight) meditation, the form that was originally taught by the Buddha and has been practiced for ~2500 years.
Each week we’ll study a portion of the teachings, which are as relevant to our lives today as they ever were. And we’ll practice with a specific technique given each week. A period for questions will be left at the end of each session, and homeworks are given to help you integrate the training into your everyday life.
We had great success with this program in the Spring and sold out quickly. Don’t hesitate to save your spot!

Lora Ksieniewicz has been teaching yoga since 2006, and has studied meditation and asana practice for more than two decades. Her classes focus on functional movement to keep our bodies safe, strong and healthy, using the poses as a way to access our minds and emotions for release, healing and greater ease in the present moment.
Lora holds a degree in Holistic Health at The University of Massachusetts Amherst, with a focus on the Kinesiology of Yoga. She has studied the history and philosophy of Buddhism and Hinduism at Boston University, through Antioch University, and at Mount Holyoke College. She spent several months at the Burmese Monastery in Bodh Gaya India, studying the history of Buddhism and it's various traditions from both an academic standpoint and as a practitioner. She is honored to have studied vipassana meditation with the venerable Munindra-ji, and was able to test his patience with her many, many silly questions. Some of Lora's yoga teachers include Claire Este Mcdonald and Gregor Singleton, Sarah Powers, Shiva Rea and Baron Baptiste. She has trained within the Sivananda Yoga tradition in the U.S, the Bahamas, and in Kerala India.
