A story of love, duty, honor, and devotion

The Ramāyana is one of the most widely revered epics of South Asia, with origins from 7-4th century BCE. The text is rich, and said to be one of the longest epics from ancient times, containing nearly 24,000 verses. While the story is packed with action and adventure, there is great wisdom and beauty that lies within the multitude of themes and allegories behind the obvious storylines.

Join Nartana Premachandra as she guides you through the Ramāyana and pulls back the curtain on the deeper themes therein, told in five parts. Then, join Elle Brodsky for an embodied experience of the Ramāyana, applying the themes to gentle physical movements, breathing, and deep relaxation.

This series is open to all levels. No previous yoga experience is necessary.
