Purusa: Unveiling our wholeness

Dates: April 27-29, 2018

Friday, April 27th, from 6-8pm Saturday, April 28th, from 9-12am and 2-5pm Sunday, April 29th from 9-12 and 1-3pm

Classical yoga shared through the ancient text, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, emphasizes an inner experience that holds space for our healing. The aim of the yogic practices is to realize this inner energy, known as Puruṣa, and allow it to facilitate our understanding of wholeness. In this workshop we will study the diverse practices of asana (stable and easeful movement), pranayama (yogic breathing), meditation and the Yoga Sutras to unveil this innate inner nature. This workshop is suitable to all levels of practitioners.

Jenny is a certified yoga therapist and senior teacher practicing in Seattle, WA. Her work marries over 20 years of study is yoga, Buddhism and body/mind centered psychology.

Cost:  $204.75 for the whole weekend (taxes included) or $42/two hour sessions and $63/three hour session (on a space available basis).
