A 4 part course for those wanting to deepen their understanding and experience of Yoga as a transformational path, with Amelia McCombie.
Have you ever wondered “What is Yoga?” There are many definitions of Yoga, and many different approaches to the practice. According to the traditional teachings from The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Yoga is all about our relationship with our mind. The definition of Yoga given in the Sutras is: Sutra 1.2: Yogas citta vrtti nirodhah, Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind. Patanjali also gives us a Path called The 8 Limbs of Yoga, consisting of 8 practices/limbs, that support us in the pursuit of bringing more stillness to the mind. Asana (the physical postures) that we do in our Yoga classes, is one of these limbs.
In this 4 Week course we will be exploring the 8 limbs that make up this path of Yoga, as well as some of the other teachings from the Yoga Sutras to give you more understanding and experience of Yoga as a transformational path. Each session will include a combination of Practice & Philosophy.
When? Saturday’s 11am-1pm, 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th of July
