Kushala Sangha – Weekly Community PracticeSeptember 28, 2017
Are you curious to learn more about the roots and relevance of yoga’s diverse practices beyond the familiarity of yoga postures? In this workshop, we will examine and discuss the underlying principles and practices that support not just how we “do yoga” on our mats, but also how they can lend clarity of the mind and heart to lead a more grounded, engaged and awakened life.
To balance the demands of modern living, we often turn to the posture practice of yoga, supported by breathing exercises and mental centering. Although yoga postures offer countless benefits, they arose from a rich tradition of long standing and interwoven lineages, each offering a set of yoga practices, often grouped into “limbs” or “anga” in Sanskrit. A widely recognized framework of practices today are eight limbs of yoga (aṣṭānga yoga or rāja yoga) that were transcribed in the Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali, a two-thousand year old text that forms the basis of the Yoga darśana (philosophy).
In this workshop you we will:
- Explore the origins and evolution of the 8 limb yoga practice.
- Learn what the 8 limbs of yoga are, and how they can be practiced on the yoga mat and in daily life.
- Explore and connect to the meaning of the eight limbs from a personal, relational, societal and universal perspectives.
