The Power of 3
In groupings of three, four and five, yoga provides a world view with respect to ethics, stages of life, modes of nature, modification of consciousness, movements of prana, types of students and life trajectories. With these three workshops, Gabriel will elucidate the descriptions of triads, quaternios and quintuples, each supplemented by asana sequences aimed at bringing it all together.
Week 1: Trios
For the introductory element of this workshop, the trifecta of Kriya Yoga will be laid out:
- The zeal of Disciplined Practice (Tapas)
- The intensity of Sustained Study (Svadhyaya)
- The Passion of Devotion (Isvara Pranidan)
All of these Niyamas (observances) contribute to making yoga come alive as the tradition gets passed from generation to generation.
