Inside Patanjali's Words: A Celebration of the Yoga Sutras

Registration is closed, but please check other Give Back Yoga Foundation Events

Join five master teachers as they guide us in an exploration and celebration of Yoga’s path of joyous self-transformation. Over the course of three sessions, held over three days you will discover: How to live a meaningful life of harmony in this world guided by Sage Patanjali's words; how suffering impacts us and what we can do about it; the depth, joy, and wonder of meditation.

The Yoga Sutras hold the power to generate peace - individual and universal - and to bring meaning and harmony into every corner of your life.

During this three-day event, you will:

  • Develop and deepen your meditation experience
  • Learn how to maintain mental poise and clarity in every situation
  • Generate potent inner forces to counteract negativity
  • Harness acceptance, faith, and devotion to open the heart

Yoga means union. Yoga also means remedy. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the classic manual of Yoga theory and practice, reveals clear pathways to harmony and healing. It is an inexhaustible and trustworthy guide for anyone interested in exploring and experiencing the heart of Yoga. 

The spirit and beauty that is the heart of Yoga is timeless and full of wonder.

Please note: This event will be live and recorded for the replay library using Zoom Rooms. Your video and/or audio participation is optional and will be managed yourself.
