The practices on the mat, yoga asanas and pranayama, are the starting point for a more balanced, healthy and happy life. The benefits go far beyond the physical, effecting mental, emotional and spiritual well being. Approaching Yoga with conviction and purpose, and then integrating what you learn from your practice into our daily life, is practicing yoga off the mat.
In this workshop, Swami Paramananda will expound on the four main paths of yoga and how by integrating them into our daily lifes, we can live more happy, joyous, loving lives, and begin to experience the unity of oneness which is the ultimate goal of yoga.
