David Gordon White, PhD and Yoganand Michael Carroll Co-Present The Embodied History of Yoga

David G. White, PhD
David Gordon White, PhD, a specialist in South Asian religions, and the author of several books on yoga will present a special all-levels workshop on "The Embodied History of Yoga" alongside Yoganand Michael Carroll, Dean of the Kripalu School of Yoga at the Kripalu Centre for Yoga and Health, Stockbridge, MA. Running between August 2–7, 2015 (Sunday–Friday, 5 nights), the workshop promises to be one of the most engaging and informative yoga events to take place over summer 2015. As you likely know, Kripalu tends to fill up its spots quickly for its summer events; and this workshop, in particular, (a real opportunity for anyone wanting to learn more about the practice of yoga) is worth booking early.

Program Details

Yoganand Michael Carroll, Dean of Kripalu School of Yoga
The inner landscapes of the subtle body are windows into the 4,000-year-old experiment we call yoga. In this workshop, David Gordon White surveys how changing paradigms in ancient, medieval, and modern India have affected the yogic experience. He presents new themes each day, supplemented by images from South Asian art. Following David’s themes, Yoganand Michael Carroll, Dean of the Kripalu School of Yoga, offers practical instruction on embodying the lineage of yoga in a contemporary practice.
Discover how you can integrate yoga’s rich history into your personal practice, through
  • The study of yogic symbolism and its application to practitioners today
  • The paradigms of chariot warfare, Ayurveda, demonology, goddess worship, sacred geography, alchemy, and the time-space continuum
  • Deep introspection and personal exploration in a safe community
  • Morning practice led by Yoganand, illuminating material covered the previous day
  • Partner and group discussions.
