Bhagavad Gita Immersion: The 4 Paths of Yoga
Join us for a special afternoon of yoga philosophy and engaging timeless spiritual thought! Damodar will present a fun, captivating, down-to-earth, succinct & digestible 4 hour introduction to the main yoga text & most-translated book in human history, The Bhagavad Gita.
Learning & discussing important themes of perennial yogic wisdom from this illuminating book, this immersion will invoke a spiritual intelligence that can be directly applied to our everyday lives - teaching us how to live a more connected existence - and, if we are yogis or yoga teachers, how we can apply this connection to our practice on & off the mat - and our own teaching.
What really IS this thing we do and call “Yoga?” This immersion will simplify & make clear the fundamental teachings of yoga by exploring the four common yoga paths described in this classic – Karma-yoga, Jnana-yoga, Ashtanga-yoga & Bhakti-yoga, clarifying what separates and what unites them, how it all relates to asana practice & our complex contemporary lives, as well as which elements of these paths are most practical for deepening one’s own yoga practice in today’s world!
Students will be be better prepared to interpret yoga teachings for themselves by gaining an understanding of the most fundamental concepts of yoga through the Bhagavad-gita, yoga’s most essential text.
