Most of us associate yoga with a physical practice: certain postures, done in certain sequences and in a certain way.
For yogis, the physical practice is only one of 8 aspects of our practice. In our materialistic, aesthetic-obsessive times, physical practices became overly important, and most of us forget what truly constitutes a yoga path: looking inward, gaining control over not only our bodies but especially over our thinking patterns, and reaching deeper inside where the Seer resides, the aspect of our being that is observing and directing our efforts.
In this workshop we will explore the basic philosophical grounds of yoga and how they can be relevant and helpful in our daily struggles. The lecture will be followed by a yin yoga practice and a meditation.
