The teachings of Yoga are a refuge, they protect, shelter and uplift us out of the darkness and into the Light. In the morning session we will look at what each of the families of poses (standing, seated, twists, etc.) have to offer the body-mind. In the afternoon session we will talk about Kriya Yoga (the yoga of purification) and learn how the primary actions learned in the families of poses prepare us the Pranayama, which leads to Dhyana (meditation).
