with Wendi Wagner

Register for Yoga Sutra and Samkhya - Wisdom and Guidance for a Purposeful Life

4-week series beginning February 4, 2024 from 3:00 - 5:00pm

4-week Series: Sundays, Feb 4, Feb 18, March 3, and March 17

The practices and philosophies of yoga are vast and ancient. Around 2000 years ago, sage Patanjali is said to have encapsulated many of these teachings into 196 illuminated sentences, widely known today as the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Contemplate the core of yogic theory, philosophy, and psychology in a Sunday afternoon series this Winter. Our group study sessions will explore deepening practice, recovering focus and remembering our power and freedom to participate in a meaningful life.

In this course we will:

  • Explore the frameworks and content of the yoga’s eight-limbed path
  • Contemplate ancient wisdom with a view toward present-day wellness
  • Discuss habit, change, and the causes of suffering
  • Engage in simple practices for steadiness, self-regulation, ease and calm

Winter Study Series, adjunct to Uttara’s 200-hour YTT but open to all!

Early Bird Price of $65 for the 4-week series (by 2/1); $75 for the series (after 2/1). $20 to drop in weekly.
