SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2019 11AM – 1PM w/Anastasia Ezequelle
Join Anastasia for an Introduction to the 8 Limbs (Ashta-anga) of Yoga as described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. This Yogic philosophy is just as relevant and accessible in today’s modern world as when it was written over 2,000 years ago. These teachings are a spiritual pathway to connect to our true nature, that can be obtained through body, voice and mind.
The physical aspect of yoga (asana) is only a small portion of Yoga philosophy and is only in place to help us facilitate the inner work to master our own minds. Yoga practice is more than physical poses, it is a path to liberation, it is about gaining control over the mind and going inward to understand our true nature. We will discuss and practice each limb and learn tools to integrate the principles of yoga into every moment of your life, through your actions, words and thoughts... on and off the mat. The workshop will include postural movements, breathing exercises and techniques to learn to quite the mind. It will be a mixture of lecture, practice and discussion.
WHAT TO BRING: Comfortable Clothing Yoga mat, if you have one. Any version of the Yoga Sutras, if you have one.
Open to yoga students of any tradition that wish to deepen their practice and to those that have never practiced yoga.
A minimum of 4 people, maximum of 8 to hold the workshop.
