The Secret Power of the Yoga Sutras
Meets weekly on Wednesdays: June 1, 8, 15, and 22 ; 4:30-7:00pm MT
The Yoga Sutras is an ancient scripture forming a complete guide for the study and practice of Yoga. It weaves together a beautiful tapestry of essential wisdom and insights that reveal our divine nature.
Whether you are a student of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras or new to its Yogic Wisdom this unique weekly 4-part workshop will provides an opportunity to understand the reason for the practices, and to gain knowledge of and interpret Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras from a heart-centered intuitive approach.
Originally you may have come to Yoga for its powerful health and strengthening benefits, it is now time to partake in the unfathomable sense of peace leading to the emotional and spiritual enlightenment that is our birthright.
In this workshop we will explore all four of the books or padas, Samadhi, Sadhana, Vibhuti and Kaivalya Padas. Through this exploration we find ourselves moving through the practices and entering the esoteric world of powers (siddhis), transformation and spiritual liberation.
This workshop is based on Nischala Devi’s book, The Secret Power of Yoga which has been revised to include all four books or Padas of the Yoga Sutras.
- the essential wisdom of the Yoga Sutras from a heart perspective
- meditations and simple practices inviting this sacred text into our daily lives
- lively group discussions
- living from our hearts in harmony with others
Whether you are a long time student of the Sutras or this is your first exposure, you will revel in discovering your own inner wisdom.
