Samadhi

Vinyasa Flow | By Elena Brower on Feb 14 2012
In Ravi Ravindra's book, The Spiritual Roots of Yoga, he offers Samadhi, the 8th limb of yoga, as a state of silence and of settled intelligence. This practice will incorporate a standing pose flow for your hips, breathwork that focuses on healing your eyes, hip openers and seated poses, all to offer the poses as medicine for your body, and bring on that state of silence and settled knowing.

    Thanks for another amazing class. The beak mudra really does soften my eyes as well as my brain. Does that mudra have a sanskrit name? Is it from the Hatha or Kundalini tradition? Curious!

    Thank you for this elegant and peaceful class! It came at a really great time- last week in my yoga school we studied the 8 limbs of Astanga yoga in the Yoga Sutras, so this was a perfect practice so really think about how to achieve samadhi in everyday life!
