Alignment from a yogic standpoint takes long periods of time, in fact our whole life. This whole process depends on moral discipline and the cultivation of a multitude of virtues. The overarching theme of the Yoga Sutras is that as yogis we are to be actively engaged in upholding the yamas as well as cultivating virtues: faith (shraddha), courage (virya), mindfulness (smrti) and intuitive wisdom (prajna). This is to offset lower tendencies such as violence, fear, complacency and mindless action.
In this virtual workshop we will explore a variety of sutras focusing on Yogic character, and integrating our study with Asana and Pranayama Sadhana, as well as recitation of sutras.
Please note that the original workshop was planned to occur at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of La Mesa (http://iyengaryogalamesa.com), but registration and payment will now go through Vidya Institute.
