Intro to Yoga Philosophy Workshop
January 6 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
We know so well our yoga practice “on the mat”. It is what we can come to class for, learn actions about, have tangible access to. But there is a practice of yoga “off the mat” that is just as transformative and can be just as accessible with the right tools and information.
At first glance, the philosophy of yoga might seem “esoteric” or “unattainable”, but understanding how to approach the subject and with some context, it can be slowly and easily digested. Ultimately, having an understanding of the philosophy behind yoga can drive your practice on the mat to a deeper and more fulfilling place.
The Introduction to Yoga Philosophy workshop will give you some historical context of yoga, concepts of how yoga views the body and the human being, and hints on how to approach the Yoga Sutras so they do not seem so overwhelming. No matter what your level of practice “on the mat” it is never too early or too late to add some philosophical focus “off the mat” as well. See you there!
This workshop will kick off SBG Yoga’s new approach to studying the Sutras through our Yoga Philosophy Club! The Philosophy Club will be open to Sadhana members and will meet once per month on Sunday afternoons. Stay tuned for exact dates and times!
