The Bhagavad Gita, “The Song of the Lord” is the timeless Indian spiritual classic that is integral reading for any Yoga student and teacher. It is set against a backdrop of a battle field where the warrior Arjuna, guided by Lord Krishna, navigates through the battle within himself. The Gita is as relevant today as it was more than 2000 years ago – Gandhi refers to this sacred literature as his “spiritual dictionary”.
We will explore how to apply and practice the teachings of the Gita on and off the mat through asana, mantra, lectures and discussions.

Saturday May 12 – Sunday May 13th: We will explore the major themes of the Gita: Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga.

Day 1: Saturday May 12

Morning Session: Karma Yoga – The Path of Spiritual Action

Why is Action a Necessary Part of the Path to Liberation?

We start with a yang asana practice and followed by looking at how we can incorporate Karma yoga into our daily practice through a lecture and discussion.

Afternoon Session: Jnana Yoga – The Path of Wisdom

Wisdom in the context of Yoga is so much more than just collecting information, it is the wisdom that comes from knowing the Self. A slower Yin practice will lead us through ways to tap into that inner wisdom followed by a lecture and discussion.

 

Day 2: Sunday May 13

Morning Session: Bhakti Yoga – The Path of Devotion

Faith and total surrender to the Divine are considered to be important aspects of Bhakti Yoga. We start with a Yang asana practice followed by kirtan (devotional singing) and a discussion on how we can bring in the devotional aspect into our daily practice.

Afternoon Session: Raja Yoga – The Royal Path

Krishna named it the Royal Path because it was practiced by great kings (raja) in ancient times. Some of us might be familiar with this as Patanjali systemized it in the Yoga Sutras. We will start with a lecture and move into a Yin practice followed by meditation and conclude the session with a discussion and Q&A.

 

Day 3: Monday May 14

We will look at basic Sanskrit to enhance our understanding and chanting of important verses in the Gita.

Morning Session: Basic Sanskrit and Mantra Purusha

We will start with a short asana practice focusing on the Vishuddha (throat) Chakra followed by an introduction to basic Sanskrit on the five mouth placements and how they correlate to the transliteration system from Devanāgarī (Sanskrit) script to the Roman letters, so you can begin to attune to accurately Sanskrit pronunciation and enhance your Mantra Yoga practice. You will also be taught introduced to the Mantra Purusha – the Cosmic Being or Person (Purusha) made of mantra, as a meditative tool to enhance your sadhana (daily practice)

Afternoon Session: We will practice the Mantra Purusha followed by chanting essential verses of the Bhagavad Gita and end this session with meditation.
