The Deep Roots of Yoga Retreat

Dates: Nov. 1, 2019 - Nov. 3, 2019
Category: Sports/Recreation
Visit Our Website

"Yoga is 6,000 years old, right?" We will explore the historical beginnings of yoga, the early yogis and their Upanishadic philosophy, influences of Samkhya and Buddhism, and the medieval development and decline of Tantra Yoga and its ultimate reformation into Hatha Yoga. While the yogic practices have changed dramatically over the millennia, the goals of the practitioners have remained remarkably stable; and so we find these philosophies rich and fertile areas for the development of a meaningful and dynamic context and personal intention for practice today. Practice sessions will be interspersed with lecture and discussion sessions. Practices will introduce and include pranayama, khumbaks, the bandhas and incorporate these into the asana practices where appropriate. Those already familiar with the practices will be encouraged to move and practice at a depth that supports them, while those new to the practices will be led in a guided and structured experience.

This transformational retreat includes: • Plenty of asana and pranayama practice • Esoteric teachings that make a lot of sense • Information and techniques to deepen your practice when you return home • Hope and inspiration for your spiritual journey
