Event description

Description

Join us for a weekend of moving, breathing and learning with Ashtanga yoga teacher, author, social activist and philomath Eddie Stern.^

After leading the primary series each morning, Eddie will offer chanting, pranyama and lectures.

On Saturday Eddie will discuss some of the underlying mechanisms of yoga that make it an effective practice for self-regulation, emotional regulation, and spiritual experience, highlighting specifically the effects of certain pranayamas and other yogic practices that are particularly powerful. Eddie will also be drawing from his upcoming book, One Simple Thing, (to be released on March 12th, 2019), in which he examines a variety of scientific findings and yogic explanations that complement both an Eastern and Western approach to spiritual practice. Even after thousands of years, yoga continues to be an infinitely interesting and exciting practice and philosophy, never growing old, and always staying new. In this class we will look at some of the reasons why this is so. This class will include chanting, pranayama, and the lecture.

In Sunday's lecture we will explore the four paths of yoga that represent the four basic ways that we interact with the world. Yoga at its core is the practice of knowing who we are on a deep level. The access we have to that inner knowledge gets cloudy because our minds are filled with thoughts, desires, confusion, conflict and regrets. Yoga provides remedies for all of these mental difficulties, which are reflected through the four paths, or modes, of yoga. In this class you’ll learn what the four paths are, how they apply to you, and what states of mind the four paths can help to soothe, so that you can use them to help strengthen your positive mental traits, and gradually diminish negative mental states. This class will include chanting, pranayama, and the lecture.

The schedule for each day is as follows:

^ Eddie is the founder of Ashtanga Yoga New York, the Brooklyn Yoga Club and the Brooklyn Ganesha Temple. He has published several books on Pattabhi Jois and Astanga Yoga, including a translation of Pattabhi Jois’s 1960 treatise, Yoga Mala. He co-publishes a philosophical journal, and is a leading proponent in various fields relating to health and wellness.
