In this series of workshops, yogic principles and practices will be explored to move you closer to your adhyatma, or higher spirit. Learn more about the six vikaras, or deformities of the self that express themselves in our thinking, moods, actions and behaviors. The vikaras are endemic to all of us, desire, anger, greed, infatuation, arrogance, envy. But the extent to which they manifest is along a continuum and can be moved from a more negative expression to a more positive one. This is dependent on developing an awareness of where you are on that continuum and utilizing accessible yoga practices that are integrated into your daily life.

This workshop was conducted online August - September 2023.

Each session will includes a lecture, followed by a guided yoga practice that you can take into your daily life.
