Topic: Can Yoga Change the World? Should Yoga Change the World?

Most people today think of yoga as a personal practice done on mats. Very few students—and teachers—know that yoga’s struggle with the outer world goes back at least 2500 years: The Bhagavad Gita’s hero argues with God about how to fight a war following yogic principles!

A lot has happened since then. Yoga has flip flopped, with Advaita Vedanta and Classical Yoga advocating withdrawal, and early Veda and late Tantra striving to engage. What can we learn from Thoreau, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and others who have carried yogic philosophy into the material world? What about other spiritual traditions (Christianity, radical Islam) that have sought to impose their worldview on others? Join Lois for a stimulating conversation with clear implications for our planet in 2020.

With a recognition that we are called to serve for the highest good, together, we’ll explore ideas to find Grace and beauty in this moment as we enjoy community, connection, and collaboration.

What is Samudra Shakti ONLINE?

With Samudra Shakti ONLINE, we continue the collaboration, expand the connection, and deepen the learning of Anusara methodology and philosophy.

Samudra Shakti ONLINE is open to everyone. Our live online gatherings are free.

Furthermore, you may earn Yoga Alliance CEU’s if the Presenter is a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider).

How did this idea originate?

In Fall 2019, our USA Anusara teachers’ gathering in Estes Park, CO was shakti-filled. With a desire to keep the energy alive, Samudra Shakti ONLINE was born.
