Practical Vedanta Yoga Workshop

27th January - 1st February 2020

About the workshop

Vedanta Yoga is one aspect of Yogic practice that is promulgated by the ancient Himalayan masters. 

Vedanta is the process of engaging in self-inquiry and exploration, in order to become immersed and merged in the Divine within our own beings. It is the end goal  of the Vedas. 

Through the ages, Himalayan sages have recommended the practice of Vedantic contemplation and meditation, in addition to a regular practice of asanas and other Yogic techniques, such as chanting and pranayama. The combination of these three aspects of Yoga training will stabilize the mind, strengthen the body, and nourish the awakened Kundalini Shakti energy. 

One of the main inquiries of Vedantic meditation is the contemplation of who we are in our essence. 

Understanding the Divinity that resides within and around us is ultimately the fruit of a successful Yoga practice of inner exploration. 

Swami Vivekananda was the 19th century proponent of this Vedanta Yoga and termed it as Practical Vedanta.

And it was highly recommended by him as a potent practice for the spiritual advancement of people already practicing asanas and pranayama.
