Besides the actual Asana classes that I am really getting into, I very much enjoy the lectures on Yoga philosophy in the afternoons. Here I learn that Yoga is much more than the Asana classes, which is mostly what is practiced and known as Yoga in the western World. Many strange new words are floating around in this class -Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Raja Yoga, Shakti and Kundalini, Pranayama, Pingola and Ida, Analoma Veloma and Kapalabhati, the Bhagavad Gita, Hatha and Asthanga, Chakras and Nadis- to name a few. What I get out of the classes is that Yoga is a way of life that one decides to live, a way of thinking, acting, eating, sleeping and behaving. It is a path of experience, which aims for liberation.
