Kriya Yoga Workshop with Laura Morello

March 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$35

Both Studios – Wall Open

Explore a style of yoga rooted in philosophy.

Kriya Yoga is described as the Yoga of Action, meaning it integrates three key niyamas: Tapah (austerity/commitment), Svadhyaya (self-study/introspection), and Isvara Pranidhana (Surrender).

All 3 niyamas are related to self-restraint and Kriya Yoga weaves them together to make them accessible in our daily life.

In this workshop, we will:

+ Explore texts describing the niyamas, as well specific techniques that help support these niyamas, including asana, mantra, pranayama and more.

+ Bring these niyamas alive in our lives through active inquiry, journaling prompts and open sharing to further explore how to make Kriya Yoga be what it is meant to be – a Yoga of Action in your life.

Objectives:

+ Understand Tapah, and select a few asanas and pranayama techniques that help you relieve stress.

+ Identify ways to embrace more Tapah in your life through asanas or pranayama

+ Learn boundary setting to protect your personal energy.

+ Develop Svadhyaya/Self-Study.

+ Explore the certain texts of the Sutras and Bhagavad Gita.

Please wear comfortable/yoga clothes, bring texts that inspire you (Bible, Talmoud, Tao Te Ching, New Testament, etc.), pen and paper to journal.

INVESTMENT: $35 until March 8; $40 thereafter
