Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtra is a key yoga text, yet for many contemporary practitioners, its deeper treasures remain either unknown or mired in obscurity. After decades of study Ranju Roy and David Charlton have published Embodying The Yoga Sūtra: Support, Direction and Space, around which this weekend workshop will be based. This book focus’ on 18 of the most important sūtras and shows how each one illuminates the relationship between the body, the breath and the mind in a practical, clear and contemporary manner. A recent review of the book said “This book is an essential – probably unique – guide to understanding how the Yoga Sūtras can support and inform our yoga practice both on the yoga mat and in our everyday lives”

An understanding of the 3 guṇa, the primary energies of prakṛti, is key to understanding Patañjali’s project. This day workshop will build upon the guṇa in terms of their roles, their qualities and their pathologies and will include significant physical practice (āsana and prāṇāyāma) as well as deconstruction of significant sūtras from the original Sanskrit. It is open to anyone who wants to take their understanding of the yoga project deeper. For those already familiar with Patañjali this will open new ways of approaching and applying the text; for those newer to Patañjali this will provide a compass to steer a course in developing your yoga practice and will answer the question: what are we doing in our yoga practice?

There will be an opportunity to buy Dave and Ranju’s book at this event

The day workshop is part of a weekend workshop- attendance at both days is highly recommended as there will be a progression, but each day is self-contained and can be booked on its own. To book the weekend workshop please click here.

On Saturday 8th February the focus will be on the guṇa as a framework for understanding the yoga project, using ideas from both Samkhya and Yoga. To book this as a standalone please click here.
