The Yoga Sutras from Patanjali are some of the oldest scriptures on yoga, written as aphorisms, (short sayings or proverbs,) which have layers and layers of meaning within the lines. Ancient yoga students would memorize the verses and learn the deeper messages for each verse directly from their teacher, weaving them into their meditation practices. This course takes the listener on a journey of the Yoga Sutras, from the First Chapter to the middle of the Third Chapter. Jeanne will help dispel the formality of the Sutras to see the logic and how they apply to our current daily circumstances. These Sutras can truly become a tool to help anyone live with life’s obstacles and seeming limitations.
Each day will open with an hour of yoga asana practice and then move into exploring the Sutras to see how they apply to our practice and to life off the mat. There will be group discussion, stories and inner discovery, mixed with lots of humor. Afternoon sessions will close with Pranayama and Meditation practices influenced by the lessons learned. You will leave with a newfound appreciation for this scripture as a resource for living life meaningfully.
We will be using The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali translated by Sri Swami Satchidananda as a group. Students are welcome to bring additional translations for comparison.
