Yoga History & Philosophy (via zoom)

$20Purchase required to enroll
On going Yoga Philosophy 101 Series - No prior attendance or experience in yoga philosophy is needed! In this session we will do further study of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and focus on the portion on practice, in particular the 8 limbs of Raja Yoga. Raja Yoga is the yoga of controlling the mind, to gradually but inevitably reach a state of peace by identifying with the true Self. We will very briefly review the content of the last session and give context for this section before diving into it. If you have a copy of the Sutras please have it with you, but it is not necessary to benefit from the session.
