Our commonsense understanding of the words “yoga” and “meditation” suggest that they are two separate things: One of the body and one of the mind. But as we go deeper into the practice either one, we find a deeper unity at their core.
A weekend workshop with special sessions for yoga teachers. You will need to attend the whole weekend workshop “Asana as meditation – Meditaiton as asana” in order to join the extra sessions for teachers.
