A pictorial summary of the first ten days...

Upama Yoga Summer Intensive: 
Module 1 and the start of Module 2

We began the program by getting an overview of gross anatomy, basic physiology, comparative meditation techniques from Modern Secular, Buddhist and Hindu traditions, and lastly began our intro to Sanskrit pronunciation. While these are very intimidating ideas, we approached them from a pragmatic perspective and a fun, light attitude. We looked at what there was to know, isolated what we needed to know, and explored the ideas through a variety of concrete, experiential techniques.
