The philosophy of yoga tells us that suffering is caused by the loss of contact we have with our true selves and that the only way for us to recover from sorrow and suffering is to reconnect to ourselves.
This four part workshop explores the four spiritual paths of yoga: Karma-Yoga, Bhakti-Yoga, Raja-Yoga, and Jnana-Yoga and is designed to help participants understand the philosophy and psychology of each path, as well as identify the path that may serve them best on their personal journeys to the soul. The text used for this workshop series is entitled: The Four Yogas by Swami Adiswarananda.
Venessa Bowers, 200 RYT: Venessa is a licensed certified social worker – clinical, a certified clinical trauma professional, yoga instructor, and a Usui/Holy Fire Reiki Master. She specializes in working with children and adults who have been affected by traumatic experiences. She uses creative expression and mindfulness as treatment modalities in her clinical work in conjunction with more traditional therapeutic interventions. Venessa’s teaching style seeks to create deep thought, inner connection, and release of things no longer serving the individual. Her classes can have an therapeutic feel to them, but they are not therapy classes. Her approach to yoga uses the Karmic path, which is the “yoga of action in the service of others” and her style has been called “gritty and real.” Venessa completed her 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training with Rebecca Sirman Yoga at YogaVibez in Ocean City.
