Yoga Sutra (Philosophy of Yoga) with Chris Dormaier
January 12 @ 10:00 am| $25
“I am so grateful for the Yoga Sutra class. It is a respite where I can ponder and discuss what is most important to me and how to obtain it through the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras.” VR
Ever wonder how Yoga has stood the test of time and is so popular today? It is because the Yoga Sutras, Yoga’s foundational text, contains all teachings of Yoga. These ancient strategies and tools, designed to help with life’s challenges, are as relevant today as they were 2000 years ago.
As we explore and discuss selected Sutras and their many layers of meaning, we will discover practical answers to the questions: What is the mind? Why do we suffer? And, what steps can we take to reduce this suffering?
In this enlightening workshop you will:
- Chant the Sutras in Sanskrit
- Discuss their meanings and applications to your everyday life
- Learn to incorporate the Sutras into your Yoga practice
Where did yoga come from? What is the philosophy behind the practice of yoga? What are the eight limbs of yoga? Find the answers to these and many more questions through presentation and discussion of the principles that guide our yoga practice.
This class is appropriate for both new and experienced students. All workshops with Chris Dormaier are eligible for CEUs. Class is held at SoundYoga.
