The Bhagavad Gita
For Yoga and Meditation Practitioners
– an introduction to Field Yoga with Malcolm Clark
Saturday 3 August, 4-6pm @ Oasis Holistic Blk 10 Selegie House
Throughout the teachings of the Bhagavad-Gita, the Yoga bible, there are directions for individual practise of Yoga and Meditation.
This event will point to some of the methods and practical disciplines found in chapters 13 and 14 of the Bhagavad-Gita. From these two chapters Malcolm Clark has developed a style of yoga called Field Yoga. This event will include an introduction to Field Yoga, especially for beginners.
Field yoga’s purpose is for gaining insight and development of spiritual values within the individual.
Field yoga starts with:
1. physical body culture,
2. moral and ethical disciplines,
3. includes physical postures,
4. breathing exercises (pranayama), and then extends to
6. meditation, and
7. samadhic contemplation.
Field Yoga is a complete yoga style.
On Saturday 3 August there will be
- a 50 minute talk to begin, 10 min break
- a 50 minute practice session, for those who would like to apply and integrate the disciplines of posture and breathing and meditation – to see and feel how these work and fit together.
- There will be time for questions and answers following the 50 minute practice session.
- The event is intended to be ‘practical’ and to give the theoretical principles upon which the practices are based.
- The event is open to all levels of practitioner, with a special emphasis on beginners.
- Those who wish to participate in the physical practice are invited to wear suitable clothing applicable to asana/posture.
