Yoga-sutras Immersion Weekend

July 14, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - July 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm EDT

The Yoga-sutras are codified instructions that describe a science of self-realization. They include instructions on psychology, ethics, theology, metaphysics, and meditation. The objective of this weekend immersion is to provide yoga teachers and serious students with insights into Patanjali’s systematic approach to the practice and experience of yoga. Topics include:

  • How to follow the literary form of the Sutras
  • The commentarial imperative in the system of Vedic knowledge
  • Yoga psychology
  • A comprehensive analysis of the 8 limbs of yoga
  • Yoga as a moral philosophy
  • The role of Isvara in the Yoga-sutras
  • The mystical experience of yoga
  • Navigating translations, interpretations, and cultural frames of reference
  • Sanskrit chanting: how to recite the Sutras
  • The perfection of yoga in the Yoga-sutras

The basic premise of the Yoga-sutras challenges our sense of identity, flies in the face of modern assumptions, and defies conventional wisdom about the nature of reality. Through lecture, discussion, and experiential learning exercises, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of Patanjali’s system of yoga and its implications for the modern practitioner.

This Immersion Weekend is a part of the Yoga Philosophy course offered through Sol Yoga’s 300-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training. For more information about Yoga Teacher Training programs at Sol Yoga, click here.
