Yoga means ‘union’ or ‘connection’. In Sanskrit, the word ‘yoga’ is used to signify any form of connection. Yoga is both a state of connection and a body of techniques that allow us to connect to anything. Yoga practices include posture (asana), breathing (pranayama), control of subtle forces (mudra and bandha), cleansing the body-mind (shat karma), visualizations, chanting of mantras, and many forms of meditation.
We will meet for free yoga classes, study of the Bhagavad Gita, meditations, clean veg meals, service to different communites, Indian classical music workshops and other special workshops with guest teachers. We are open to suggestions from you. All ages, nationalities, shapes and sizes welcome. You don't have to be flexible or fit. You don't have to be religious. We hope to make a supportive, educational community.
This year we Association for India's Development (www.aidjhu.org) at Johns Hopkins will host Diwali in a unique way. We are raising funds for Organic Farming and Environment protection in India. More detailed information ... More info can be found at concert web page www.aidjhu.org . Part of the proceeds will go towards Haiti reconstruction. The recent cholera outbreak has proven that Haiti still needs our help. So if you feel we are doing a noble work then please join us for a wonderful night of Diwali. AID is a non religious organization and we are using the word Diwali because it symbolizes world peace, harmony, cleanliness and so many things. Most Yoga people are passionate about environment, so don't treat this as a spam.
