Introduction to Yoga Philosophy
With Jane Crosland
When: Saturday March 24
2:00 – 4:00 pm
Investment: $35 / Free for current Beginners course participants


This workshop offers you an introduction to the 3000 year old philosophy that exists behind the yoga poses you practice during your classes each week. Yoga asanas or postures are only one part of a much larger system generally referred to as the 8 Limbs of Yoga. Like a giant tree with 8 sturdy branches, this workshop gives you the opportunity to explore a little deeper into the science and philosophy of Yoga.

During this workshop we will discuss and practice some of the 8 limbs as written in the Yogic text called the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali penned in 200 AD.

This famous text talks about the 8 limbs of yoga as a set of guidelines on how to live well and practice well into old age. The objective of the 8 limbs of yoga is to enable you to become aware of your ‘self’ as part of the ‘whole’. It’s all about creating balance and equanimity so you can live in peace, good health and harmony with the universe. 

This workshop includes a practical and experiential exploration of;

  1. Yamas – universal morality
  2. Niyamas – self-restraint / personal observances 
  3. Asanas – poses
  4. Pranayama – yogic breathing
  5. Prathayara – withdrawal of the senses
  6. Dharana – focusing on one point
  7. Dhyana – meditation
  8. Samadhi – enlightenment
