Tapas Practices in Veda

Saturday, 6/25,  5 – 6:30: Lecture: The Opening Words in India’s Yoga Conversation: The 3000-Year-Old Vedas

Are you part of yoga’s growing edge? We know yoga is ever-new, but—as they say—the more things change, the more they stay the same.
To innovate, know what’s come before. If a painter thinks he’s invented Cubism ‘cause he never encountered Picasso, he’s in a world of hurt.
Like everything else, yoga has The Classics, and the Vedas are its most revered members. You might need a guide to get their best juice. This talk will take you there.

The Vedas opened India’s minds and bodies to the divine and they will open you, too. Come to this image-rich talk.

Pranayama

Sunday, 6/26,  11-12:30: Practice: The Basic Pranayamas to Open the Mind

Breath practice–pranayama–is a science of mind and spirit. It expands the body’s energy and balances the mind’s movement. Our brain races, clutches closed, and falls open, and there is a simple and basic regimen to steady it. Brain health is big. Learn yoga’s time tested contribution to this trending meme.

 

 

 

 

Vivekananda-Title-webSunday, 6/26,  3 – 4:30pm: : Lecture: How America was Opened to Yoga: 1893’s Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda—Sure, you’ve heard of this guy, but who the heck was he? When did he live? What did he look like? And why does his name keep hanging around?

Before Gandhi, ML King and Mother Theresa, Vivekananda was the first pop-culture saint. He was the first to make yoga desirable and cool.

Hopping a boat to Canada in 1893, he taught yoga throughout the West before dying young and leaving sweet echoes in history.

In this lecture, catch the stories and images of Vivekananda’s brash, cigar-smoking effort to pull yoga from its superstitious shadows into the modern world.
