Celebrate the Birthday of BKS Iyengar
December 14, 2014 @ 2:15 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for a celebration to honor the life and legacy of BKS Iyengar.
This community event will be led by Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher Rebecca Lerner. It will include a puja and chants offered by members of our community.
There is an important spiritual component to the practice of yoga that often gets less attention then the physical aspects of the practice. This community puja will involve the lighting of ghee lamps and the use of auspicious symbols to offer gratitude and to reflect on the personal way BKS Iyengar impacted each of our lives.
The Iyengars use chants to bring them deeper into their practice, and closer to self-realization. You will have an opportunity to learn some of these chants including the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Guru Strotram and more. No experience is needed and you don’t need to sound good. Simply being in the room, you will benefit from the experience and contribute to its success. This is the power of chant!
If you have a copy of the yoga sutras, please bring it. We will also provide copies to read from.
Tea and light refreshments will be served.
Free to all.
Donations are encouraged. Bring refreshments to share, or consider a financial donation. All proceeds will support the programs of the Iyengar Yoga Association of Northern California.
