Ekam is a word from the ancient Indian language Sanskrit. It is a beautiful language, which carries meaning not only through words but also the vibration of sound.
Ekam means “one”.
It is a fitting name for a festival that will bring teachers and students of different traditions together to learn and share with respect for each other’s experience and knowledge.
We may practice different postures or the same postures differently. We may focus on meditation, pranayama (breathing) or asana (postures). We may be a beginner or an accomplished practitioner. We may understand yoga to be something that makes our bodies feel good or see it as a deep spiritual practice. At Ekam we come together as one.
Ekam Yoga Festival is organized by Random Acts of Yoga, a not-for-profit organisation based in Port Macquarie, which aims to improve the local community’s wellbeing through yoga. This is a not-for-profit event.
Purpose in Practice: Yoga Lab – 2.30 pm
In this class you will learn how to connect to your Dharma (life’s purpose) through the practice of Yoga. You will find a deeper connection to your Self, learn how to marry breath and body and discover new depth in postures. We will discuss how to access Meditation more easily and we’ll learn how to set clear intentions for our practice that connect us to our Sankalpa (deep resolve). This class will ignite your practice of Yoga.
