Elephant Journal is proud to partner with the YOGA IS Conference bringing these amazing teachers and leaders of the mindful life and yoga community to our elephant readers. Elephant’s own Waylon Lewis had a chance to participate in the conference by offering his Buddhist and meditation wisdom.
**Register here for this inspiring event ft. Waylon, Seane Corn, Dharma Mittra and other mindful leaders.**
Patanjali described the point of the yoga path as “stilling the waves of the mind”—not as a vaguely spiritual aerobics. The Buddha practiced various yogas for six years before finally surrendering to the hardest, simplest practice of them all: meditation practice. Today—with yoga more accessible and popular than at any time in history—most of us are too speedy for savasana and too few teachers focus on breath and alignment, let alone intention.

Waylon will offer a simple meditation instruction for yogis, yoga teachers and their students.
