Where: Lakulish Yoga and Health Retreat, 8136 NC Highway 119 South, Mebane, NC (336) 421-0690 www.lifemissionusa.org
When: Takes place over the third week of May: May 17, 18, and 19, 2019
Course content: While Hatha Yoga is designed to help make the body more fit and pure, the Karma (action), Gyan (knowledge), and Bhakti (devotion) aspects of yoga help to guide one’s thoughts and actions in life to become more harmonious with a higher purpose or spiritual path. These aspects of the ancient Indian practice of yoga are non-denominational, universal pathways to help you achieve greater well-being, peace, and joy in your life. Rarely taught outside of India, these traditional guides to living will be presented in an extremely practical and interactive approach so that they can be immediately applied to your life in a meaningful way. The tenets of Karma, Gyan, and Bhakti yoga are applicable to every age group, lifestyle, and level of yoga knowledge.
Here is what some past students have said about the course:
“The clarity with which we were taught was phenomenal. I feel like I can take home what I learned and actually apply it.”
“My heart and my head were totally satisfied by this inspiring and practical workshop. I saw how the deep teachings came together into a unified whole and how I was connected to all of it. The exercises inspired meaningful ways to bring greater clarity and peace into my daily life. I left feeling uplifted and connected to Self with deep appreciation and love for the sometimes struggling being that occupies this body-mind.” - Shantiprriya Marcia Goldberg (Kripalu program leader, life coach, and yoga practitioner)
“The teaching style was super-organized and concise. Loved the side stories.”
“Opened up vast possibilities that I can now further explore.”
“Though born and raised in the Sanatan dharm culture, I learned something new that changed my perspective of life. Teachings and exercises were informative and engaging. I am looking forward to the next course.” Mehul Patel
