In this overview of the classic yogic text, The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, we will delve into the subtle meaning and daily practices of the eight limbs of yoga.Beginning with a study of Samkhya philosophy, upon which both yoga and Ayurveda are founded, students will gain the solid philosophical understanding needed to fully grasp the intricacies of a balanced life spiritually, mentally and physically. We will then study the classical yogic text, the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali with an emphasis on understanding the mind and the theory and practices of Sadhana Pada (the chapter on practice).
