Tags : | asana | bandha | bhagavad gita | hatha yoga | mantra | meditation | mudra | pranayama

The Bhagavad Gita is the most beloved philosophical treatise in India. In 18 short chapters, it offers guidance on such weighty topics as dharma and karma, as well as the yogas of bhakti, jnana, and raja.

Class Series
August 12-16, 09:15-10:45

In this five-part class series, we will engage in a contemplative hatha yoga practice. Each class sequence will have as its foundation one of the verses from the Bhagavad Gita. The verse will be introduced at the outset of the class, along with an interpretation and contemplation offered about that verse. We will then engage in a practice consisting of some or all of the following: asana, pranayama, bandha, mudra, mantra, and meditation. Each hatha yoga sequence will be tailored to maximize the physical and psychological exploration of that day`s verse.

The verse for each session will be sent to each participant prior to the start of the series.

This intensive is open to all levels of practitioners. No previous Bhagavad Gita experience is required.

Each session will begin with an hour and a half lecture, followed by a 1.5 hour practice consisting of some or all of the following: asana, pranayama, bandha, mudra, mantra, and meditation. Each hatha yoga practice will be sequenced to maximize the physical and psychological exploration of that day`s topic. The last half hour will be a Q&A session related to the topic discussed and practiced.
