Study and practice of the paths of Yoga
Do we really know the Yoga? We remember and, above all, practice its inexhaustible richness at the physical, energetic, mental and emotional level and in every action of our lives? Eva Espeita (Swamini Radhananda Saraswati) and Víctor G. Cruz (Mrtiunjaya) offer, since the maximum honesty, rigour and care, the treasures of the Integral Yoga. (Second edition of the course. From February to June 2015).
Yoga means Union. By definition, since its inception the Yoga always has been and is necessarily a discipline holistic, global, whose search for the expansion of the consciousness in pursuit of the paradoxical Union (samadhi) must pass, necessarily, for a work of development of the care in every field of existence.
This subtlety of Yoga is delicate and often seems to disappear in the current globalization of the same. However, human beings need access to this depth more than ever.
Many are the formulas through which characterized the Yoga in this necessarily global sense. Thus, it is said that Yoga is a system for health and total harmony, a set of techniques and attitudes of purification and perfection of the human being to physical, mental, emotional, ethical, etc. Or, the way to reintegrate the individual consciousness in the cosmic consciousness through the realization of the harmony between the head, heart and hands.
Indeed, the greater the number of fronts from which they try to access the drive, how many more spaces of our lives are focused attention and in pursuit of self-knowledge, more will expand our consciousness and more (more Yoga, and therefore health and fullness) union will carry our way through life; in other words, the more global and deep is our practice, most approach to understand who we really are. This is the meaning of practice together, routes proposed by all the paths of Yoga.
The paths of Yoga, even though they are not really isolated disciplines, constitute a extremely fruitful way of live and exposing the contents of the great tree of Yoga; a kind of map that can help us to clarify and better understanding of the way and the right way in which each one and each one can traverse it according to our singularities.
The aim of this course is, precisely, introduce students to the power of the integral yoga holistic perspective, as it was raised this discipline from its origins and developed since then. We propose a course with a ciclico-evolutivo sense, working in each section the Yoga connection through a particular angle and at the same time, creating a linear development through which every step builds on the previous. Like this:
- Firstly, we will prepare the base balancing our energiespurifying and settling our body through the Hatha Yoga.
- Secondly, we will be able to try to glimpse the unutterable experience of mental silence to which refers the Raja Yoga, attitude of Fund from which you depart and to which we in any meditation practice.
- Thirdly, from the safety of having glimpsed the horizon that guides us, we will implement in the acquisition and development of our faculty of discernment wisdom through the Jñāna Yoga.
- Fourthly, without getting lost in the maze of affection thanks to our sharp discernment, connect with the global love and devotion through the Bhakti Yoga.
- Fifth and finally, applying the balanced, meditative, discriminating and devotional attitude developed in other paths, We will apply ourselves in bringing Yoga to all of our actions, making them aware and desapegadas, in keeping with the spirit of the Karma Yoga.
They will provide, in each of the six sessions, a theoretical introduction about the path format satsang, a selection of practices that condensed the spirit of the path, a small selection of quotations from texts about the path and a list of bibliographic resources recommended for personal study.
