Yoga-sutras Workshop @ Bluebird Sky Yoga

May 6, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

The Yoga-sutras define yoga as a science of self-realization, describe a moral philosophy upon which a lifestyle of yoga is based, and provide the aspiring yogi with a psychosomatic process by which the goal of yoga can be achieved. In this session we’ll look at the definition and goal of yoga, the three essential actions of yoga, and the eight ‘limbs’ of yoga in Patanjali’s system. Topics of discussion will include the psychology of yoga, the ethics of yoga, and how to evaluate different translations and commentaries on the Yoga-sutras. Participants will also learn how to chant some of the key sutras in a way that will make even the most difficult Sanskrit passages easy to articulate.
Cost: $25 for single workshop; $40 includes both Saturday’s Yoga Sutras Workshop and Sunday’s Bhagavad Gita workshop.
