The Yoga Sutra-s present the subtlest workings of the human being, from our deepest suffering to our highest spiritual possibilities. Join Marc Beuvain on this 8-day programme of in-depth study and

…become an independent philosopher

Each of the 195 sutra-s will be translated word by word and explained. This way of teaching hands you the keys, allowing you to use your direct knowledge of the text to nourish your practice, your reflection and your decisions on a daily basis.

…go beyond study and really understand

The text allows us to understand all the aspects, the workings, the problems and the potentials of the human being. It presents, clearly and directly, a multitude of tools, techniques and paths leading to holistic health.

Beyond personal progress, the text also brings us understanding of all the underlying and evident imbalance in today’s society.

To allow for deeper understanding and integration of the text, each sutra will be commentated using “real life” examples.

…experience yoga for what it really is

Yoga is not, and never has been, a subject to intellectualise. It is teaching to experience.

Much more than a few theoretical ideas on which to ruminate, the text can lead to realisations and awakenings of the kind that bring about lasting personal transformation.

…understand the whole spectrum of yoga

A text of reference and authority for generations of yogis, the Yoga Sutra-s present the whole dimension of yoga. Way beyond a weekly hour of gym, yoga is a lifestyle, a philosophy, a path towards health on all levels. With only 3 of the 195 sutra-s dealing with postures, the depth and perpetuity of yoga are immediately understandable through this text.

…take time to practice

During each workshop, the lectures will be interspersed with practices, helping you to maintain comfort and concentration, and allowing you to experiment with certain areas of the text.

Chapter 1: Samadhi Pada – Being in Tune with Yourself

Weekend 1: Saturday 12th – Sunday 13th January 2019

In this first chapter, we will discover the ultimate aim of Yoga: to take control of the mind in order to free oneself from worries and preoccupation and to allow one’s consciousness to reveal itself.

The topics covered are:

• The logic to follow to take control of the mind
• The meditative tools and techniques to use to be in tune with oneself and find peace
• The various states of consciousness according to Yoga
• The health issues which result when we are not in control of our mind

During this week-end, you will be able to reflect on your own state of consciousness and will understand that through Yogic techniques, freedom of consciousness is accessible to all.

Chapter 2: Sadhana Pada – Putting an End to Identity Crisis

Weekend 2: Saturday 2nd – Sunday 3rd February 2019

The second chapter will explain the identity crisis and the resulting neurosis experienced by human beings when these are not in tune with their consciousness.

The topics covered are:

• The logic behind identity crisis
• The Yogic tools to help solve these conflicts
• The use of the first five limbs of Yoga to overcome these conflicts

During this weekend, you will be given a new take on the use and power of Yama, Nyama, Asana, Pranayama and Pratyahara. You will also be given the opportunity to reflect on your own Yoga practice and on how to use it to facilitate your link with your consciousness.

Chapter 3: Vibhuti Pada – Finding Your Intuitive Intelligence

Weekend 3: Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th February 2019

Chapter 3 explains the nature of the meditative process and how practising the various forms of meditation will transform individuals who have the necessary courage, strength and determination.

The topics covered are:

• The conditions necessary to meditation
• The meditative process and different types of meditation
• How to use meditation to transcend the intellect and access one’s intuitive powers
• The traps inherent to the practice of meditation

During the course of this week-end, we will explore the use of meditation in various contexts: therapeutic, contemplative and the development of human resources. You will be given time to reflect on meditation as a tool to become independent and think for yourself, as a way to be in touch with your heart and live accordingly.

Chapter 4: Kaivalya Pada – Freedom of Consciousness: The Big Adventure

Weekend 4: Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th March 2019

The last chapter of the Yoga Sutras explains to what extent the aim of Yoga is to transcend the human condition through meditation in order to free one’s consciousness.

The topics covered are:

• The consequences of freedom of consciousness on the individual and global health
• How to treat conditionings and beliefs which stop us from evolving
• How to overcome past traumas
• How to differentiate between the voice of our ego and the voice of our consciousness

During this last week-end, we will explore how to open yourself to the wisdom of Yoga and will reflect on the consequences of freedom of consciousness at social and political levels.

Certification

You will receive a Yogacampus Certificate of Competency upon successful completion of all weekend modules and homework.
