It is commonly held that Saucha literally means purity, cleanliness and clearness. Traditionally thanks to the teachings of Patanjalli, The Mahabharata and many generations of yogacharya as it refers to purity of mind, speech and body. However, as we approach an environmental and ecological extinction it may be worth considering how we contribute to the purity and cleanliness of our world. This workshop offers much more than just a physical, mental and spiritual workout! A workshop for all that will open up a discussion and broaden an awareness as to how we can avoid further climate change and alter our world and our abode as we slide deeper into the anthropocene!
