About This Workshop
In this event, host Kim Weeks and Swami Asokananda, President and Spiritual Director of the New York Integral Yoga Institute, explore the origins, evolution, and modern-day story of Integral Yoga. This practice synthesizes six branches of yoga into a comprehensive lifestyle system, including Hatha, Raja, Bhakti, Karma, Jnana, and Japa.
Yoga continues to evolve to include deeply varied styles and types of practice, all rooted in a shared ancient history. Yoga Lineages is a series of conversations that explores seven of today’s most widely recognized yoga lineages, revealing what is unique about these practices. Whether you’re seeking peace of mind, strength in body, or are simply interested in finding a more mindful way of living, yoga can help and is a practice for all.
