Intermediate Monthly Iyengar Yoga Class with Intermediate Junior 2 Instructor Karin


Maharishi Yoga Asana Weekend Workshop

You are warmly invited to join us for a 12-hour interactive workshop on Maharishi Yoga Asana presented by Deborah Marcia Rubin, a Certified TM teacher, certified yoga teacher, and Certified Maharishi Yoga Asana Instructor.

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced practitioner of asanas (postures), this is the perfect opportunity to deepen your understanding and experience based on the principles of the Maharishi Yoga Asana program. Maharishi Yoga Asanas were specially selected to enhance your meditation practice. They are designed to enliven mind-body coordination to support pure awareness, the state of Yoga.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of Transcendental Meditation,  based this series of Yoga Asanas on the teachings of Maharishi Patanjali Yoga Sutras, and the Vedic principle of action, (Bhagavad-Gita, Chapter 2, Verse 48), Yogastah Kuru Karmani: Established in Being, perform action. The goal of Maharishi Yoga is for the development of higher states of Consciousness to enliven life in increasing waves of happiness and Bliss.

This 12-hour workshop lays a foundation for a daily practice of Yoga Asana and Pranayama (yogic breathing), for enhancing well-being on all levels. You will leave with a greater appreciation of the value of a home practice.
