Yoga & the Eight Limbs with Jeff Perlman

Yoga means “union” of the body, mind, spirit and breath. It is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that is one of the six philosophies of India. Yoga was first documented in the Vedas, which are the earliest literary record of Indian civilization containing spiritual knowledge about all aspects of life. The practice of yoga was first documented by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras around 2000 years ago. In the Sutras, Patanjali describes the Eight Limbed Path leading to Samadhi (Bliss/Absorption). In this workshop we will cover the eight-fold path of yoga in detail and practice asana (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation.
