Discover the Heart of Yoga: Asana and Pranayama

with John Schumacher, CIYT, C-IAYT

September 11 - 13, 2020

As Swami Satchidananda said, “Truth is One, Paths are Many”.

Explore the path laid out by Patanjali as interpreted by Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar. In the practice of asana and pranayama, we can see the manifestation of all eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga. Svadhyaya (the deep study of ourselves) through the alignment of body, breath, mind, and spirit, can take us on a journey to our innermost Being and light the way for us to realize our full potential.

Yoga means something different to everyone. These days, it finds its expression in a broad spectrum of practices ranging from Yoga in intense heat to Aerial Yoga, to Yoga with goats.

But what lies at the heart of Yoga is the desire, will, and discipline to wake up to who we really are.
