Yoga: The Practice of Myth & Sacred Geometry with Rama Jyoti Vernon
Time & Location
About The Event
Acclaimed Yoga teacher and international peace mediator, Rama Jyoti Vernon will teach a yoga class and lead a discussion on themes from her recently published book, “Yoga: The Practice of Myth and Sacred Geometry” (Lotus Press). Rama’s presence illuminates her surroundings. Her words are an inspiration to all who hear them.
For the first time the essence of Rama Jyoti’s teachings, which evolved from decades of studies with great masters, have been codified. This book includes more than 200 pages of photos and instructions, with myths and therapeutic benefits associated with the asanas, and much more.
Practicing yoga improves health and creates peace of mind―that’s well known to most Westerners. But for those who yearn to add meaningful depth to their lives, yoga holds even greater riches. In the practice of asana, our bodies assume geometrical forms known as yantras. These yantras are force fields of energy—condensed, crystallized experiences of the Divine that draw consciousness like a magnet from the outer to the inner worlds.
In this class, master teacher Rama Vernon offers her unique approach to yoga, anchored in knowledge of the Yoga Sutras and integrally focused on the breath. Through asana, interactive lectures, and discussion, Rama will emphasize:
- posture practice interwoven with philosophy, mythology, and yantras
- the five pranas within asana
- concentration on the breath
For all levels, from beginners to experienced students and yoga teachers.
