This is a 7 day full-immersion experience with foundation on Classical Yoga philosophy and practices, including meditation, asanas (postural training), pranayamas (breathing techniques) and simple kriyas (cleansing techniques).
People glibly speak about Yoga without realizing that it forms an integral part of a composite Samkhya-Yoga Philosophy, the oldest philosophical system in the world. Samkhya provides the theoretical base without which one can neither understand the philosophy of Patanjali (The Yoga Sutras or Ashtanga Yoga) nor derive full benefit of Yoga by just practicing ‘mechanically’ at the physical level.
It was stated in the Mahabharat: “There is no wisdom like Samkhya, no power like Yoga”; and in the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna tells the warrior Arjuna: “The ignorant differentiate between Samkhya and Yoga, not the wise. He who sees the two as the same has the right understanding”.
Therefore, anyone interested to understand Yoga in its entirety should start by studying the Samkhya Metaphysics and then proceed to learn the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. All techniques in Yoga are meant to allow the practitioner to bring the philosophy to the practical level. If you don’t know why you are practicing for, or if you don’t have the right attitude towards the practice, you’ll be hardly practicing any real Yoga.
