Antaranga Yoga 2019

December 24, 2019 — December 25, 2019

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are the basis of Yoga and they are a delightful confluence of philosophy and practice. The central ideas of Yoga like Dhyāna, Prānāyāma, Avidyā, Samādhi etc, have influenced the entire body of inner exploration of our sages. These ideas have been explored in Buddhist, Jain and Shakta traditions as well as the Vedic. In fact there is no area of spiritual  Sādhana that is not influenced by the essential principles of Yoga. This timeless text has been an extraordinary guidepost for seekers over millenia and is full of wisdom that is urgently needed in our quest for a more humane and compassionate way of life.

The course involves engaging with the Yoga Sutras in a self-reflective manner and seeing how it applies to one’s own life and choices being made. It is not intended to be an academic or didactic teaching of the sutras, but a dialogic facilitation of self-driven learning in the light of the wisdom the text offers.

This course is open to people who have completed the Yoga Sadhana, Yoga Acharya,  Yoga Vaidya and Yoga Prayogam courses offered by YogaVahini.

Participants should be committed to inner work and are expected to be self-motivated in being regular with the course.
