What Will We Do During This Retreat 

  

Yoga Philosophy  - "Yoga philosophy, often simply referred to as yoga, is one of the six main darshans, or the orthodox schools of Hinduism. The origins of this philosophy are unclear, but first references can be found in the Upanishads from the 1st millenium B.C.E. The Yoga Sutras, widely regarded as the authoritative text on yoga, is a collection of aphorisms outlining the eight limbs of yoga: a prescription for moral and ethical conduct, self-discipline, health, and acknowledging our spiritual nature. During this retreat we will know about the history of yoga and other aspects of it.

 

Asana Practice - "Asana" is Sanskrit for “seat”.
