THE YOGA OF THE BHAGAVAD GITA
A Special 6-Session Series with Sandra Carden, ERYT500
Yoga4 Lake Leelanau, MI
The Bhagavad Gita, or The Lord’s Song is now the most widely known yogic scripture, tracing back before the Christian Era, and long before guarded as it was considered a secret revelation.
Certain teachings remain classic in all spiritual and psychological traditions, as their message is timeless. On my mind and in my heart is the Bhagavad Gita and the relevance of its message today: navigating through tough decisions, karma yoga or good work, duty, communion, compassion for oneself and honoring our teachers.
In six gatherings we will explore the historical setting of this tale, it’s characters and their symbology, the teaching’s present day implications, and the true meaning drawn for you, personally.
In each 2.5 hours class, or kula, we will incorporate asana and meditation to support the open-book discussions. Kula, a Sanskrit term, means “a community of the heart, a group coming together of its own free will. An intentional community, a family.”
As we feel the turn of the planet toward the most introspective and darkest time of the year, let us shed some light on life. Please join Sandra and this little tribe of inward inquiry, The Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita, on these six Thursday evenings 6-8:30 PM at Yoga4.
$198 for the entire series, 15 hours CEUs for teachers. See www.yoga4.net for enrollment.
