"Do not think of yourself as a small, compressed, suffering thing. Think of yourself as graceful and expanding, no matter how unlikely it may seem at the time." ~ B.K.S. Iyengar
Course 1: Yoga Foundations
We will delve into the study of yoga darshan, one of the six major schools of philosophy of India and how it relates to our asana, pranayama, and meditation practice, on and off the mat. We will reflect on Yoga as a Sadhana, that is a practice in our life. Yoga is truth. Health and vitality come with it. A holistic vision is innate in the approach. Foundational principles - the 5 great elements, Yamas (great universal observances), Kriya (acts) and Marga (paths), will be explored. Foundations in yoga asana, pranayama will be unfolded to offer you stability when you practice, in class or on your own.
