An Afternoon Walking the Spiritual Path of Yoga
On the Path of Yoga
What does it mean to have a yoga practice? Is it a path to physical fitness? Stress reduction? If we look at seminal texts on yoga, we see that yoga is a comprehensive spiritual path. The path of yoga leads us into a state of full integration of our highest self in every moment.
In this afternoon course we will look at one of these texts, the Yoga Sutras, and explore the spiritual path of yoga. This program is in 3 parts.
- What is Yoga?
- How do the sutras define yoga?
- The 5 modulations – a way to check if we are in the state of yoga.
From here we can look at a yoga practice and its essential requirements.
The Path of Yoga
There are 8 limbs of yoga, each plays a role on the path to realization. We will learn about each limb and how it helps us toward our goal.
Part of the afternoon will include learning a personal daily 20 – 30 min practice that includes postures, breath and meditation.
