Introduction to Yoga Philosophy

November 2, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT


What does yoga philosophy have to do with what we do on our yoga mats? Is ‘reality’ really an illusion? What does ‘karma’ actually mean? Are there ‘correct’ interpretations of Sanskrit scriptures? In this workshop we’ll look the origin and historical development of yoga philosophy, de-mystify its terminology, and explore some of classical yoga’s more challenging propositions. Participants will gain a frame of reference for recognizing different schools of yoga philosophy, learn techniques for accessing the essential messages of classical yoga wisdom texts, and have the opportunity to consider whether the traditional ideas of yoga philosophy are still relevant to life in the 21st century. This workshop is for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the philosophy that forms the foundation for our yoga practice. Discussion and experiential exercises – recommended for both teachers and practitioners who want to deepen their experience of yoga.
