The Roots of Yoga
Limited Capacity seats available

We will take a historical look into the past 5,000 years of yoga. We will look at its Vedic roots and its development in India through the Upanishads, Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad Gita and on into the 20th and 21st centuries. We will look into the explosion of yoga through the Western world and through the entire world in the last 50 years. There will be a timetable of influential people who helped to bring yoga to the West in the 1900s, up to the present day. We will look into how asana fits into the ancient system of yoga, and while marveling at the explosion of yoga that has taken place of recent times, it will be dutifully noted that there has been a great price to pay for this. The asana explosion will be put in its place in looking at the wholeness of yoga.
