INTEGRATING YOGA INTO DAILY LIFE
One of the wonderful challenges of yoga practice is how to integrate it with the rest of our lives, how do we make our entire life into a yoga practice, so we can grow in self- awareness and fulfilment? This workshop explores the inner dynamics of the journey and provides helpful, practical guidance to do just that.

What is right and what is wrong? How can we confront the dilemmas that life often presents to us. Well beyond the theoretical, this workshop explores the traditional wisdom on the topic of dharma, or ethics, and extracts valuable guidance for life. The theoretical understanding is then applied to one or more real-life examples.

MEDITATION THROUGH THE 3 GUNAS
The 3 gunas are a traditional way of looking at reality with broad implications for yoga practice. When applied to meditation, they become a lens through which we can explore and navigate the entire range of experiences and approaches. This workshop will help us not only to broaden our understanding of meditation, but also to find ways of dealing with the environment, the various challenges we may encounter in medita- tion practice and the various possibilities to enter the heart of the practice.

SPANDA: THE PULSATION OF LIFE (SPANDA KARIKAS)

Drawing from one of the fundamental texts of Tantric Shaivism in Kashmir, this course explores the very foundation of life and the universe, unveiling powerful insights and a variety of transformative practices that have the potential to radically transform and enrich our lives.
