Living Life by the Yoga Sutra
Sunday, April 28th 6:30-7:30pm
Location: Seaside Studio
Discussion on how the philosophy of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - an
ancient text that defined and instructed the practice of yoga as a state
of being - can be applied to and understood through our everyday lives.
This wisdom can add a deeper level to one’s asana practice by
involving the 6th, 7th and 8th limbs of the 8 Limbed Path – Dharana
(Concentration), Dhyana (Meditation) and Samadhi (Absorption) - and
guide the yogi in practicing yoga all the time - in every moment, through every life experience, from the extraordinary to the mundane.
**Yoga Philosophy nights are held on the 4th Sunday of every month. They are FREE. Donations to the studio accepted**
