This is a discussion-based gathering so bring your questions and your journal for taking notes, writing down ideas, or capturing ah-has.
These sessions do not include asana (yoga postures).
Dates and Topics:
May 11: Sanskrit with Cindy Levine
Learn about the ancient language of Sankrit, including it’s history and how it became and remains connected to the practice of yoga.
In addition to learning about the history of Sanskrit, you will also discover the derivative of Sankrit words and the words themselves as well as how to easily identify what is being said by the roots of the words. Phrases associated with chants and mantras will also be covered.
This Philosophy Gathering will help you become more connected to your practice by linking the Yogic language to your inner dialogue.
June 8: Ayurveda 101 with Leela Kelley
Ayurveda is an ancient healing system which often referred to as the sister science of Yoga. In this introductory workshop, we will explore the different elemental make-ups that comprise ourselves and the world around us, how to identify when we are out of balance, and learn simple ways to bring ourselves back into balance by using the wisdom of Ayurveda. Come for a fun & experiential class that will provide you with basic knowledge for deepening self-inquiry.
July 13: Intro to the Eight Limbs with Cindy Levine
The foundations of yogic philosophy comes to us from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. These are directives for healthy, balanced and peaceful living. The core of the Sutras are the Eight Limbs of Yoga, which is the structural framework for achieving complete health – physically, emotionally and spiriturally.
In this workshop we will explore the history of the Eight Limbs of Yoga, what each limb encompasses and how we live our lives based on this path.
