Philosophy of Yoga
During this 1.5 hour workshop you will receive important and inspiring information about the yoga philosophy allowing you to understand in a very simple and deeper way different aspects about the origin, types, and goals of Yoga. You will learn about:
Vedanta Philosophy: One of the world’s most ancient spiritual philosophies and one of its broadest, based on the Vedas, the sacred scriptures of India.
The three Gunas: Just as all colors can be created from combinations of the three primary colors of red, yellow and blue, so, too, is all of experience and all of creation formed from three aspects, or gunas: Satva, Rajas and Tamas. These three qualities are the ingredients of all mental and physical existence.
The four paths of Yoga: Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, and Raja Yoga. These four paths of Yoga are aspects of a whole that is called Yoga. The four paths of Yoga work together, like fingers on a hand.
The 8 limbs of Raja Yoga: Yama (attitudes toward our environment), Niyama (attitudes toward ourselves), Asana (physical postures), Pranayama(restraint or expansion of the breath), Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (complete integration).
This workshop is $35, or $70 for both.
Yogic Sukshma Vyayamaa (Detox Yoga)
This is a sequence of Kryas,Pranayamas and Bandhas.
Sukshma Vyayamaais an ancient component of yoga not known to most of the schools of yoga today in the world. This was developed, designed and propagated originally by his Holiness Maharishi Karthikeyaji Maharaj of the Himalaya.
The benefits of Yogic Sukshma Vyayamaa are so great that even without practicing the rest of the aspects of Hatha Yoga such as Asanas it is possible to derive extremely tangible benefits in a very quick manner.
The other beautiful and more important aspect of Yogic Sukshma Vyayamaa is, that it is the only system of exercises in the world where each and every part of the body including each organ, each joint and each muscle is taken into consideration, and a particular exercise or set of exercises associated with a specific type of breathing in a specific type of position with a specific point of mental concentration is prescribed.
This Workshop is two hours and costs $45, or $70 for both.
