How the Soul became identified with the body is a fascinating story. How it escapes its self-created imprisonment is like all escape stories, a riveting adventure, fraught with many dangers. but what actually is the Soul? what is its connection to the physical body? we will explore these questions and their answers though Asana (Yoga Postures) and meditation in this Workshop.
