Introduction to Yoga Philosophy

The Yoga Sutras of Patañjali

What is yoga?

So many of us seek and experience greater calm, relaxation, flexibility, strength or balance from a weekly asana class. So much so, in fact, that we often begin to sense that there is more to the practice of yoga.

And we are right! Yoga is not all about the body, although affecting the body can serve us well.

Yoga is about living a life with more contentment, clarity and connectedness.

Yoga is about developing our ability for deep personal transformation. And The Yoga Sutras of Patañjali gives us a beautifully practical system to work towards what we aspire in life.

This ancient and fundamental text for yoga provides a practical method by which to live a more connected, full and happy life. This guide to yoga includes 196 Sutras, or threads, that are considered by scholars to be one of the foundations of classical yoga philosophy.

Whether you are curious about yoga, are simply interested in Asian philosophy, want to deepen your practice, or are looking for greater joy in your life, please join senior-level instructor Jen Rault for an Introduction to the Philosophy of Yoga.

The structure of this interactive workshop will be both lecture/discussion and practice. All levels are welcome. Limited to 12 students.
