Faith can be a triggering word, for many of us have learned it to be something we needed to have blindly or face eternal damnation. But our yoga practice teaches us that faith can be something completely different. The essence of faith is love, and love is to let go of any fear within ourselves. This 2-hour practice includes asana, pranayama, and meditation to explore faith as a practice, how to cultivate it, and the rewards of doing so.

“In a culture that discourages introspection, it takes a certain sensitivity to practice yoga in the first place. It also takes courage to reconcile what it means to stay sensitive in this world without losing a sense of self. Through my practice, I’ve come to understand that learning goes well beyond the intellectual, and through trust and faith in this spiritual realm, I walk this Earth knowing there is always potential to learn and grow, no matter what arises.” – Eric Schwarz
