Class Description:

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras are considered to be the road map for the yogi. The word “sutra” when broken down is translated as “su” –to link and “tra” – in order to transcend…so the sutras are small phrases with very big meanings. All yogic traditions are rooted in the ancient philosophy, which basically explains the steps needed to be taken in order to reach enlightenment. While most of us are not necessarily after enlightenment, these seemingly simple aphorisms can be a lifelong study and practice. The most exciting aspect of starting to study them is discovering how much they relate to the asana practice and just how much they can enhance your yoga practice. In this class we will explore the sutras most related to asana and we’ll do this through translating them, defining them, and then chanting them. This will be a discussion oriented class with some pranayama and meditation included.
