Ocean of Life - Self Discovery Into Sacred Potentiality

21 Day Yoga - Sufi Breath Immersion Workshop


Based on the publication, Ocean of Life | Bahr al Hayat by Luisa & Alicia
This course was designed to cojoin the two disciplines, Yoga and Sufism, as per the 15th century era in India where leading spiritual master and grandson of Fariduddin Attar, Muhammad Ghwath Gawilyari, who had commissioned and mandated the integration, education and practice of hatha yoga for his disciples with the aim of spiritual transformation. This course aims not to impart an intellectual or academic understanding of Bahr al Hayat, rather its basic function to facilitate inspired impressions of a retelling of yoga with the inclusion of the Islamic Divine attributes and knowledge pertaining to the heart.

Join Yoga instructor and guide, Luisa, as she gently takes you on the journey of self discovery though asana and breath work. Weaving through classical texts, Alicia explores group recitation of select Divine attributes as a sound healing modality coupled with poetry to facilitate energetic openings within the energy meridians otherwise known as Nadis.

The Yogi’s quest for Divine proximity through asana aims to imitate natural ‘postures’ observed in all living things. Unity being the primary goal, yoga its vehicle; the acts of physical postures, reflection and contemplative meditation bring awareness to the breath and a longing for one’s origin. The concept of inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajeoon (indeed we belong to our Lord and to Him is our return) emphasizes the idea of ‘die before you die’. Facilitating the desired spiritual states of Fana and Baqa (annihilation and subsistence), yoga is a potential medium of experiencing nirvanic states. A student of spirituality perceives yoga as a form of praiseworthy worship where mantra or dhikr may accompany the asana in order to achieve the desired effect. This publication, Bahr al Hayat, serves as a meditative visual guide put together by two interdisciplinary artists, Luisa and Alicia. The very notion of unveiling secrets being forbidden on the Path, the two effortlessly infuse a sense of telling and non telling in this publication.
