Theme: The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

"And now the teaching on Yoga begins" Patanjali 1:1

In this retreat, you will be delving into the ancient text on yoga "The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali" which contains threads of wisdom helping us to discover the secrets to success on the yogic path. You'll be learning the original Sanskrit, through the tradition of Vedic chanting and studying various modern interpretations of the text practically through yoga, pranayama, and meditation.

"Yoga is the cessation, the stilling of the fluctuations and agitations of the mind" Patanjali 1:2
