Ancient Text – Modern Times
with Trace Sahaja Bonner, E-RYT 500
May 31 - June 2, 2019
Ancient Yoga wisdom still holds relevance for current times. Join Trace Sahaja Bonner for a delightful, activity-based weekend exploring the ancient texts of Yoga and how they can be utilized in daily life.
Through conversation, drawing, journaling, singing, movement, and meditation we will delve into the Vedas, Upanishads, Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita and Gheranda Samhita. After a short overview and exploration of each text, we will extract specific inspiration that will uplift, open, and shift our hearts and minds.
This weekend is designed to introduce you to these ancient yet relevant texts and plant the seed for your own personal exploration of them. Experience how powerful ancient mantras, stories, and Yoga asanas can heal the body, balance the mind, and help us to find stability in the ever-changing world. The Yoga practice will be easeful and meditative, weaving in some of our inspiration.
Bring a journal, a Yoga mat, and an open heart! We will also practice easeful Hatha Yoga as part of the program. All texts will be provided. If you have copies of the texts and would like to bring them, feel free to do so.
