STORIES BEHIND THE ASANAS with KELLY SOLLOWAY: Sunday, August 10th in Ramsey

Sun, 08/10/2014 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm

The Yoga tradition is rich in stories which have survived the ages. Many of the postures we practice today are steeped in history and can be traced back the ancient stories of the Hindu gods, Vedic sages and sacred animals of India.

In this workshop we will hear the stories behind the asana, and then practice the asana inspired by the legend, to discover what each story can teach us as we practice the posture. Much like using a prop to help us accomplish a particular posture, being aware of the inspiration behind the posture can add a deeper dimension as we practice. For instance, most practitioners are aware that Hanumanasana is named after the Hindu monkey god Hanuman, but few may know how the determination of Hanuman and his loyalty to Ram has inspired the posture.

This workshop is open to all levels of practitioners with a desire to delve deeper into their practice, or for those who just love a good story!

Registration: $30 per person until August 3rd; $35 thereafter. Pre-registration requested. Workshop subject to attendance.
