Be Present, Discovering the Bhagavad Gita, Goddess Saraswati, and more!

The class includes the following:

1) Be Present

The power of being present gives us freedom from suffering. Sounds pretty good, right?

2) Discovering the Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita is a fantastic resource for understanding how we can address and overcome battles in our everyday lives.

3) Goddess Saraswati

This class highlights the goddess Saraswati and how we invoke her during our practice through our breath and intention.

4) Jai Ganesh!

This class highlight's Ganesh's story and talks about how shifting our perspective literally makes problems go away.

5) Journey through the Ramayana

The Ramayana is one of the most awesome stories in yoga philosophy and the characters Ram and Hanuman are fine examples of what it takes to be a yogi.

6) Kali and Durga: Be the Change

Kali and Durga are goddesses that help us to overcome our ego and our fear. Very helpful in the process of yoga as we try and deconstruct who we think we are in favor of loving what is.

7) Sita, Ram and Hanuman

Yoga is an internal practice, but some of the yogic mythology gives us the context to unravel and discover the workings of our own mind and heart. Through the story of Sita, Ram and Hanuman we learn how to recognize our humanness as well as our inner divinity.

8) The Veil and the Unveiling

Yoga philosophy is cloaked in duality and in this class we uncover the reality and the unreality of our existence. The Matrix introduces us to this concept and in this class we discover how our inner world feeds and affects our outer world.
