This is the first of a 5 module course online working with Sadhana Pada, the first book of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

During this first five day workshop, we will explore the soul psychology of the Yoga Sutras. We will examine the model of the mind and consciousness (citta) as laid out by the sage Patanjali, including the higher states of mind and the perennial guna-theory. Additionally, we will explore the multi-faceted meanings of yoga and its relevance for Iyengar Yoga practice. We will examine how yoga is a holistic system in which all the definitions and meanings of yoga play a vital role in moving the practitioner towards positive transformation and the inner Abiding Self (Purusha).

There will be a 2 hour lecture with Gitte each day and a 2 hour yoga practice with Sheila. Both of these sessions will be recorded and participants will have access to the recordings for a short while after the event.
