Raja and Hatha Yoga Intensive
Are you wanting to learn, or to go deeper into, meditation and/or your yoga practice? Are you seeking a clearer understanding of your life’s higher purpose? Are you in transition, seeking your next step and wanting inner guidance?
In the Raja Yoga Intensive, you’ll learn how to meditate, and how to practice the yoga postures in the way they were originally intended: as a priceless aid to inner unfoldment. The practical wisdom of Raja Yoga includes working with the subconscious mind to change habits and using breath work for release of tension and emotional blocks. The secrets of success — personal magnetism, right attitude, creativity, and energy — form an integral part of the yoga science.
This course features the modern, now “classic” textbook by Swami Kriyananda, The Art and Science of Raja Yoga. There are no prerequisites. The course is open to all, whether new to these practices and concepts or wanting to deepen your practice and understanding, and to be with others who share your interest.
