Event description

Description

The wisdom of ancient Indian tradition provides the most meditative way to begin the study of this authoritative text on yoga - through the call and response form of chanting. When the words start to become familiar - through sound, through chant, this then serves as the best foundation to begin the intellectual and spiritual study of this magnificent text.

We study the Yoga Sutras from two perspectives - First from a Sanskrit & chanting perspective - we examine how the words in the Sutras when combined change their pronunciation (Sandhi). We pay close attention to the syllables that require an aspirated breath (balam).

We will go through some voice & breath work techniques to produce the correct Sanskrit sounds. We will frequently revisit the alphabet to ensure a strong foundation in pronunciation.

Second - we will examine vocabulary & brief interpretation inspired by great works of BKS Iyengar, Frans Moore & Edwin Byrant amongst others.

The opening and closing of each class is through mantra meditation.
