Raja and Hatha Yoga Intensive

12 Tuesdays in Seattle from Sept 8, 12 Thursdays in Bothell from Sept 10 , 6 - 9 pm plus 1 Saturday Workshop Oct 17

At the Raja Yoga Intensive, you’ll learn how to meditate, and how to practice the yoga postures in the way they were originally intended: as a priceless aid to inner unfoldment. You’ll thrill to discover how the inspired wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita integrates with the a deeper understanding of the Judao-Christian heritage, and how the science of yoga comes to us through the timeless psycho-spiritual insights of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (wherein is found the Eight-Fold Path known as Ashtanga Yoga).

Celebrating the Divine in All: Solstice & Equinox Celebration

Saturday, September 19, 7:30 - 8:30 pm in Bothell

Since time immemorial, humans have taken special note of the seasonal rest points in nature. Many of the world’s most celebrated religious holidays take place on or around the Solstice or Equinoxes. At Ananda here in the Seattle area we have celebrated these occasions since the Summer Solstice in 2002. We find that many are magnetically drawn together as if by some special grace we affirm our humanity and our Oneness in Spirit.

Yogasana Intensive #1: Yoga For a Healthy Back

Saturday, October 3rd from 1:30 - 4:30 pm

It is said that there are only two kinds of people: those that have had back pain, and those that will have back pain.

The intent of this workshop is to understand the common causes of back pain, and explore preventative yoga routines that keep back pain away.

We will explore the importance of core muscles and deep spinal muscles in keeping the back healthy. Through several yoga postures, we will also highlight the relationship between the pelvis and low back. Learn how simple hip-opening routines can be remarkably efficient in keeping the back healthy.

Creativity in Daily Life

Wednesdays, Oct. 7, 14, 21 at 7:30 - 9:00 pm
