Yoga Vrksa Fall Immersion: Exploring the Art of Integration
Susan Elena Esquivel2021-09-08T03:55:28+00:00
3 month Iyengar Yoga Immersion Program to deepen your personal practice and explore the concept of integration. Includes asana, philosophy, anatomy and pranayama. Over the course of 12 weeks we will break down poses and learn how to accomodate our bodies individual needs.
Yoga teaches us how to infuse our movement with intelligence, transforming it into action. BKS Iyengar through his years of devoted practice discovered that the purpose or goal of asana is to align and harmonize the physical body and all the layers, or sheaths, of the subtle emotional, mental, and spiritual body. This is integration. But how does one align these layers and experience integration? It begins with awareness. Guruji understood how asana and pranayama can be the means to reach the Self. Through the art of integration, the path of yoga can lead us to ultimate freedom. Join us as we pierce through the layers and deepen our practice of asana in preparation for pranayama.
