The word ‘raga’ translates to a ‘hue of color’. And it was color that was used in the 3rd century by Bharata Muni to define a blend of emotions, their time of day or time of season. Classical Indian music known also as ragas took root in this period, evolving over time to illustrate our emotional connection to the turning world, its endless dreams, and the way in which the emotional landscape of the universe coalesces with our hearts and intentions.
Join us for a two day vinyasa workshop with Yogi Trip, morning and evening; exploring back bends and inversions, listening to ragas, and flowing through poses especially chosen for their sacred time of day.
DATE AND PLACE:
10 and 11 January 2015, two sessions per day, at 7.30 am and 5.00 pm in Gokul Yoga Bali River side Ashram, Payogan, Ubud. (https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zRIl4RYLAb9Q.kQ6idgC5lowQ)
The workshop is FREE. We accept donations.
Please, register, places are limited.
Trip has been practicing and teaching yoga for twelve years, focusing on Ashtanga, and Vaisnav Bahkti.
His works include the Yoga Prison Project teaching yoga in San Quentin Penitentiary to the lifetime inmates, establishing free food kitchens around the United States, and direct actions with EarthFirst! by sitting in old growth redwoods for months at a time without coming down to prevent old growth deforestation.
Trip’s greatest hope is to share with you the asanas and warmth he has practiced and shared living throughout India, working in various ashrams, studying in shalas around Europe and North America under many humbling and inspiring teachers, and living a life of constant travel and devotion.
He is very grateful to his teachers Dhanurdhara Swami , Dharma Mittra , Balu Thevar , and Adam Sobel .
