Join for a six-week in-depth exploration of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras open to all levels. Immerse yourself in the philosophy of Raja Yoga, the royal path of meditation and the 8 limbs. We will explore the roots of yoga in Samkhya philosophy and the Vedas. We will delve into the meaning of this concise and literary work both in the context of when it was compiled and how it informs and has influenced the practice of modern yoga around the world. Because we will be looking at numerous translations, participants can use any translation they like for their own reading and study as long as it has the sutras labeled by number.
