We are getting ready to teach an interesting yoga class that will share the history of yoga though its images and symbols. In researching this topic I found quite a few things that surprised me and discovered a wealth of information regarding aspects of yoga I didn’t already know.
Here is a snippet you may or may not already know:
You may have heard this word chanted but don’t know what it means. This Sanskrit word is often the first thing and the last thing spoken in a yoga class. Many describe it as the ‘sound of the universe’ but it doesn’t have an exact definition. Overall, it is a sound that is chanted to unite the current yoga practitioner with the yogis of the past in a sound that validates oneness and harmony. It is a beautiful sound to hear and a beautiful symbol.
Come learn more about the images and symbols of yoga in our upcoming seminar “History of Yoga in Images” Saturday July 26, 2014. See you there.
