History Of Yoga: Saturday, March 16, 11 am-1:30 pm

In this workshop, we will explore the origin of yoga and where its philosophy emerged. It is designed for learning about yoga’s history and why it has been successful worldwide. If you are a teacher, it will help you understand the philosophy and its perspective which you can teach in your classes.

The Yoga of the Upanishads Sunday, April 14, 11 am-1.30 pm

We invite you to dive into the secret wisdom of the ancient yoga texts. Explore the Upanishads, which are perhaps the oldest mythological and philosophical texts available to mankind, containing the teachings and wisdom of the ancient sages. These sublime texts unfold for us a profound view of who we are and of the deepest dimensions of the world we live in and the purpose of existence. For this reason, they were traditionally meant to be received not from a book, but directly from a teacher.

The Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita: Sunday, May 19, 11 am-1.30 pm

What is the relationship between emotions and yoga? What is the relationship between yoga and our daily activities? And knowledge? The yoga tradition developed since its beginnings various approaches that are capable of providing meaning, depth, and joy not only to our practice but to the rest of our lives as well. This seminar explores the answers of the yoga tradition since its beginning, through an exploration of The Bhagavad Gita, one of its fundamental scriptures.

The Yoga System of Patanjali: Sunday, June 16, 11 am-1.30 pm

The Yoga Sūtras of Patanjali is the first text found on yoga, which was written more than 1600 years ago. This text is made up of 195 aphorisms (sūtras) that talk about the characteristics of the mind and how the practice of yoga helps to observe and transform them.

The World of Tantric Yoga: Sunday, July 14, 11 am-1.30 pm

Tantra offers us a very positive view of the world and tells us that the whole world is a reminder, a vehicle to expand our consciousness and reach enlightenment. In this workshop, we will explore the Tantric world to familiarize ourselves with the vision of Tantra and explore a method of meditation with techniques to get an accurate idea of what Tantra is and how to put them into practice.

Hatha Yoga and its Sources: Sunday, Aug 18, 11 am-1.30 pm

Today, Hatha yoga is very popular all over the world, but where does it come from? In this workshop, we will understand the basis of Hatha yoga to align ourselves with the original intention of this method.
