How does one come to know the Essence of Yoga? Primarily through practice of course, since Yoga is essentially about praxis. However, is simply practicing Yoga enough? What else is necessary to help us arrive at the essence of Yoga? Enjoy this short video. If the subject interests you, look below the video to learn more about joining me and veteran yoga teacher, Scott Feinberg, to explore the essence of yoga in person.
On April 6, 7 and 8, we can explore the following together in person:
3RD AND 2ND MILLENNIUM BCE: Yoga is born in the rich, spiritual culture of the Vedas, on the banks of the river Ganges and in the lofty peaks of the Himalayas. The Upanishads are the culmination of the spiritual vision that is birthed in yogic practice. On Saturday, April 7, morning, we will explore the yogic spirit of the Upanishads.
1ST MILLENNIUM BCE: Yoga is fairly well established as are many schools of philosophy, including Sankya, upon which classical Yoga is based. The Bhagavad Gita serves to bring together various approaches under a common goal, that of seeking union with the Divine. On Saturday afternoon, April 7, we will, together, explore the Gita’s yoga.
1ST AND 2ND MILLENNIUM CE: Yoga takes on clear definition with the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, father of classical Yoga that most contemporary yoga schools are inspired by. While taking time to absorb the essence of the Yoga Sutras, we shall also take a look at how yoga evolves into our present time through the Middle Ages. We do this together Sunday April 8.
