In the Bhagavad Gita, one of the most sacred yogic texts, yoga is defined as karma: action or work. In the story, the teacher, Krishna, tells his student, Arjuna, that the goal of yoga is not the fruit of our work, but the work itself. We are never done with this work of life. Yoga is both a science and an art. I believe the we practice yoga to support ourselves through our own life; there is no end goal to all of this. As the yoga philosopher Patanjali says in the Yoga Sutras, we must learn to relax the intensity of our effort and meditate on the endless energy within because this ( life) simply never ends. We do the practice for the sake of the practice, not the fruits of the labor. Yoga is the journey and not simply the destination.
I love yoga because it is both a science and an art, a perfect balance of the practical with the spiritual. In this weeklong Intensive , we will learn how to be in our practice for the right reasons and how to apply the practical teachings of yoga to our life.
We will cover asana, pranayama, meditation, restorative yoga, and an introduction to yoga philosophy.
