Bhavani Maki Workshops
June 26-28th at The Yoga Lab
Friday June 26th 6PM - 8PM
Introduction to the Patanjalim Yoga Sutra; The Yogi's Road Map
Classically, the Yoga practitioner in the East is well equipped with the definitive guide to the yogik process, Patanjali's Yoga Sutra. In the West, we are left to negotiate and navigate our ways with little or no advice. The Yoga Sutra are considered to be the definitive text for Yoga and a map of the yogik experience. Revealing the deeper underlying nature of our being, and how to quell our self negating tendencies, the indescribable is well described, and is indispensable in helping us to proceed with confidence, clarity and ultimately, effectiveness.

DRDHAH BHUMIH-Firmly Grounded: Standing & Balancing Postures
Patanjali encourages Yoga aspirants to develop a practice that is steadfast, and firmly grounded. We will investigate standing and balancing postures as a means to systematically approach to stabilize our connection to the Earth with the intent of accessing greater freedom within the self. Diagnostic as well as curative, these postures are the vehicle for developing a sustainable practice that has the qualities of integrity of alignment and form
Saturday June 27 4PM - 6PM
Restorative Yoga for the Psychonaut
Much like an astronaut, the psycho-naut ventures into the wide unknown of their own consciousness! Yogic posture is the seat from which Yoga begins and is meant to be practiced along with the study of metaphysical texts. Combining longer holds in deep hip openers with philosophy, we will continue to explore the ultimate text for Yogis—the Yoga Sutra. We will conclude the session with an exploration of Pranayama.
Sunday June 28 1PM - 4PM
Fearless Love: Back Bending into Freedom
Patanjali advises us to go forth on the yogik path with abhyasa and vairagya—effort and release, the two wings of freedom. Backbends are the most challenging, and for some of us, the most terrifying of postures. Explore the technology of freedom and building confidence in back bends, compression free.
