Hindu Deities and Your Yoga Practice

Yoga is more than just physical exercise; it is a holistic practice that encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. Central to the philosophy of yoga are various Hindu deities, each representing different aspects of consciousness, energy, and existence.

In this workshop, we will understand Hindu deities and their significance in the practice of yoga. This workshop is not about promoting any particular religion but rather aims to provide understanding and insight into the rich tapestry of yoga philosophy.

An introduction to Hindu deities including Lord Ganesha and Lord Hanuman who bless our practice.
Understanding the significance of each deity.
Exploring how these deities are integrated into yoga philosophy.
Addressing common questions and any misconceptions about Hinduism and its relationship to yoga.
Guided meditation and reflection to deepen your connection to the divine energies represented by these deities.
Open discussion and Q&A session to foster understanding and community dialogue.

Who Can Attend:

This workshop is open to all levels of yoga practitioners and anyone interested in learning more about the philosophical roots of yoga. No prior knowledge of Hinduism or yoga is required. All are welcome with an open mind and heart.
