Evolution of Yoga Philosophy Series: Living Yoga On & Off the Mat

Meeting one Friday a month for 8 months, our Philosophy Series: Pilgrimage Within merges the logical mind with the intuitive heart, the historical with the esoteric, and ancient wisdoms with universal insights to better reveal your pure potential. This is a courageous and fascinating look within the Self and is the foundation of Blooming Life Yoga's teacher trainings.

This series is based on the evolution of yoga explained in Lily Kessler's textbook, The Story & Art of Living Yoga: Humanity's Quest for Nourishment, in which you will receive a copy.

In the sanctuary of the Blooming Life shala, enjoy a yoga class taught by Lily, followed by a candid talk exploring universal life questions from the perspective of Vedic philosophies, and seminal yogic books. Additionally, gain tools to claim self-empowerment and learn meditation and breath techniques found in both Indian and Peruvian cultures.

Below is an overview of what we will discuss. We move beyond the jargon to see how yoga is lived on and off the mat.

  • Pre-Vedic & Vedic Civilization: Sanskrit, Ayurveda

  • Samkhya Philosophy: Perception & Reality

  • Upanishadic Era: Atman & Brahman, Om/AUM, Creative Soup
