A Weekend Workshop on Ghosh Yoga Therapy
Event Description:
All levels Yoga classes. Explore the history of Ghosh yoga beginning fro its origins in Kolkata, India. Learn how this lineage evolved out of body building and therapy to what is practiced today. You will become familiar with the great students of Bishnu Ghosh and explore concepts such as sequencing, heat, and competition. We will then go on to practice asana as instructed by Bishnu Ghosh himself and his two greatest students: Buddha Bose (1930s) & Der. Gouri Shankar Mukerji (1940-60s). Their approach to asana practice includes some different posture setups, multiple sets, specific breathing techniques, and long holds.

"Ghosh Yoga" is a set of values and traditions passed down from Bishnu Charan Ghosh. It shares a lot of history and values with other yoga systems, since most yoga traces its roots back to early texts and philosophies.

Generally speaking, the goals of Ghosh Yoga begin with health in the body and stillness in the mind. It is characterized by its use of stillness during and immediately following yoga postures. This system of tension and release emphasizes relaxation between periods of effort. (This is different from many modern styles of yoga that incorporate Sun Salutes between postures and link postures together.) 

Each class is $45 or attend all for $200.
