Want to dive more deeply into yoga practice? Want to connect more meaningfully to your time on the mat? The purpose of this 6-week course is to provide students with a broad, introductory understanding of the philosophical principles that form the foundation of yogic inquiry, and how they are relevant and applicable to modern urban life. We will begin with exploring the Yoga Sutras as a way to understand the 8 fold yogic path of Patanjali, as we seek to broaden our understanding of the core concepts at the heart of many yoga traditions. Through thought-provoking study questions, discussion, and journaling, and asana/movement practice, we will delve into how these tenets can enrich our personal practice and be embodied in everyday life.
