Yogic Lore: The Stories Behind the Poses
with Kimi Marin
Sat, May 20
Mythology is a narrative that explains how the world, and all its inhabitants, came to exist and are often used to teach and establish behavioral models. Similarly, in yoga, the poses we embody are part of a richly diverse spiritual tradition. Many of the philosophies, rituals, and poses of yoga are adapted from various texts and myths.
In this transformative 2-hour Hatha flow class, you will explore mudras (hand gestures), pranayama (breath control), and meditation, all the while you move and flow to the stories that inspired the poses. Delve deep within as you tap into your inner warrior, rise out of dark shadows into lotus, and shed stifling layers in cobra pose.
