Dr. J P Davé instructs the following:
  • Yoga Sutras in Your Daily Life
  • In this educational and experiential workshop, we will explore the most salient sutras-aphorisms from Patanjali’s teachings. We will focus on those sutras that explore the nature of the mind, the eight limbs of yoga, mental and emotional afflictions that cause suffering, and the obstacles that come in the way of attaining absolute freedom or liberation. You will have a handout for reciting each sutra in Sanskrit and translation of each sutra into English. We will explore the meaning of each sutra in depth. Of the eight steps of yoga sutra, we will conceptually and experientially explore the last four steps: Pratyahara - tuning out of sensory input; Dharana - choosing a focus; Dhyana - meditation; Samadhi - Absorb in True Self.
