"Interview with Gabriel Halpern"

Recently, the Temple has been excited to offer workshops with Gabriel Halpern, of YogaCircle in Chicago.

Gabriel has been an enthusiastic and dedicated yoga teacher since the 1970s after training at the Iyengar Yoga Institutes in San Francisco and Pune, India.

In this workshop, he invites students to “up the ante” in their yoga practice and begin introducing Pranayama breath control into their yoga asanas.

Iyengar, who made his transition in 2014, was interviewed at the age of 90, saying he continued to practice asanas for 3 hours and pranayamas for an hour daily.

Besides this, he mentioned that he found himself performing non-deliberate pranayamas at other times.

So come on, let’s “up the ante” this weekend with Gabriel Halpern…

Students are saying …

"Of all the words I have heard and read in my life, Sri Goswami Kriyananda's are the ones that continue to inspire me the most. What he distills from his thorough knowledge of the major mystical schools is a set of practical techniques that encourage self-awareness and compassion.

For many, it is his humor and down-to-earth sensibility that is so appealing; for others, it is his rigorously scientific and mathematical mind; for others still, it is the power of his insight regarding the fusion of the mundane and the spiritual. His is the brilliant achievement of the true Master."
