Exploring The Yoga Sūtras Of Patañjali
On-going Philosophy Series: Exploring the Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali
Upcoming classes: August 17, September 21
With Purnima Manghnani
During these sessions, we will discuss the meaning and practical application of the Yoga Sūtras, written and collated in Sanskrit by Sage Patañjali over 2000 years ago. These Sūtras are profound, as they form the philosophical foundation of our practice of Iyengar Yoga.
Sūtras will be introduced in a progressive, systematic manner. In addition to open discussion, we will learn and practice the proper Sanskrit pronunciations of each word within a sūtra, as well as learn to chant the sūtra in its entirety.
While books are not mandatory, students are encouraged to bring any translations of the text that they may have. All are welcome! No prior knowledge is required. Study materials will be provided.
