Full Description

Where did yoga come from? Is it a religion, science, physical pursuit? What are the different styles and where did they come from? What is a guru? What are the eight limbs and do I have to follow them if I want to be called a yogi? What is the difference between shiva and vishnu? Does practicing yoga go against my religion?
Most of us are familiar with the practice of asana but at times, we don’t have a clear understanding of yoga as a historical practice and its current state. This workshop will cover the origins of yoga and briefly follow its journey through time and culture. We will discuss the various forms of practice, the writings of yoga and more.
Feel free to bring a bagged lunch or snacks, an open mind and, if you have any burning questions you’d like to have answered, send them to Pam in advance!
