Buddhism and Yoga, two of the diverse lineages of South Asian spiritual practice, are much more related than commonly thought. While we may think of meditation and mindfulness as Buddhist, and postures and breathwork as Yoga (Hindu), both traditions teach meditation and physical practices aimed at liberation and the end of grasping and stress.
New historical evidence reveals a deeply interwoven relationship between these ancient siblings, and we will explore this history through learning practices shared by both.
This study and practice day will change your understanding of yoga and meditation, and give you tools to deepen in either stream.
