Foundations of Yoga Practice
This is a two part series 4 weekly classes at the
San Marcos Public Library
Half day retreat at the Dharma Ranch
PART ONE: EDUCATIONAL FOCUS
We are all affected in some way by the many stressors unique to the modern world. Be it the demands of unhealthy work environments and hectic daily schedules; isolation brought on by the pandemic; lack of energy or motivation to exercise; and/or dependency on “fast foods”.
This Fall, in four weekly sessions, Yoga and Health will present the keys to creating a life of deep joy and radiant heath found in The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali.
Each week, we will spend some time exploring the theoretical foundations of yoga practice. And then, we will delve into the practice of yoga asana, pranayama, contemplation and meditation as a process of discovering our inner terrain. Practices will be done either standing or seated in a chair. Everyone from a mature 8 year old to mature adults are welcome. This is an educational offering, not a therapeutic service.
