Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Retreat

Description of the course

This retreat features two yoga classes and meditations per day along with a total of 7 yoga philosophy talks on the Yoga Sutras of Sage Patanjali along with the regular daily ashram schedule.

The Yoga Sutras describe the path of Raja Yoga, almost 200 sutras (aphorisms) for developing mastery of the mind. The exact date when Sage Patanjali compiled this manual for the study and practice of yoga is not known, but estimates range between 5000 B.C. and 300 A.D. The physical practice of yoga, Hatha Yoga, is only a small part of the science of yoga – this course introduces students to the depth and vastness of the subject as outlined by the ‘Father of Yoga’.
