From the Roots of Yoga: Philosophy to Grow Your Practice

 

Uplift Yoga

Olney, MD 20832

Sunday, September 11, 2022, 1:30-5:30 pm

Starting on the banks of the Ganges all the way to your sticky mat today, yoga concepts and practice have evolved as a long and rich tradition. Part history lesson, part philosophical inquiry, we start with a bird's eye view of the yoga history timeline and an introduction to philosophies of India that have the most influence on yoga today. Then it's an introduction to some key yoga concepts via The Upanishads, The Bhagavad Gita, The Yoga Sutras, and the three surviving texts of Hatha Yoga.

The nature of our soul, the goal of yoga practice, distractions, obstacles, and what we can expect when we attain enlightenment… yoga's take on this is all here for your consideration. Tara's dynamic lecture style in this workshop makes complicated ideas and writings accessible and relevant to you and your yoga practice. Come till the soil at the ground of yoga to grow the seeds of your own practice!

 

The material in this workshop is suitable for curious yoga practitioners, aspiring and current yoga teachers. No previous study or familiarity with these texts is required. Expect mostly lecture/presentation with time for reflection and discussion, along with a comprehensive booklet and a recommended reading list for further study. We will not be practicing any asana.

Focus, Flow, and FLY!

Washington, DC 20011

Saturday, October 8, 2022, 1-3 pm

Cultivate your focus with some simple pranayama practices. Then integrate that focus into the body through a flowy yoga sequence. The practice culminates in an exploration of a few difficult but doable arm balances to make you feel like you can fly. Focus, flow, fly!

This class is not suitable for folks with wrist injuries/sensitivity. Some yoga experience recommended. COVID-19 vaccination required.

Pranayama 101: Rowing a Boat in the Sea

Olney, MD 20832

Saturday, October 22, 2022, 1:30-3:30 pm

Pranayama - the breath practices of yoga - is one of the most deeply powerful but underused and misinterpreted practices of yoga. This session will start by helping you to understand the purpose of breathwork intellectually. Then you'll have the opportunity for an experiential understanding of four foundational techniques. This workshop will include a lecture, some asana, and lots of time to practice with your breath.
