Traditional Yoga: The Full View Relative to Us
September 27 – 30, 2019

To the ancients, Yoga is a complete system, of which the postures are a small, though quite useful part. The word “Yoga” referred to the whole, not merely one part, which is the postures, or Asanas. The entire purpose of Yoga is spiritual in nature, according to the ancient sages.

This all-levels, three-day retreat will explore the full view of Traditional Indian Yoga as outlined by Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras – basically a “Coles Notes” of the previous 10,000 years of the yogic path. All eight limbs of the Eight Limbed Path of Yoga will be explored.

No experience is necessary. All are welcome. Please join us if you can.
