Bhagavad Gita: A Living Yoga

Overview

April 3 – 5, 2020

Fri 5-8PM • Sat 9-4:30PM • Sun 9-4:30PM

Location: Journey Yoga, Calgary, AB

 

At his passing, Mahatma Gandhi had only 4 possessions, and the Bhagavad Gita, yoga’s most beloved text, was one of them. The Gita is an epic tale of a young warrior prince who faces a major predicament – to fight, or not to fight. Unfolding on the battle field, the Gita is an allegory of the struggle between good and evil and the dilemmas we each face in our lives. The story delves into the philosophies of yoga and big life questions such as, “who am I?”, “what is my purpose?” and “why am I here?” Join us for a weekend that deepens your own personal inquiry and brings these traditional teachings to life.
