This course aims to give the individual yoga practitioner an in-depth understanding of yoga as a daily practice and philosophy of life. It gives participants an introduction to one of the fundamental texts in Ashtanga yoga: the Patanjali Yoga Sutra. The purpose of the course is to provide a greater understanding of yoga as a holistic practice that can be practiced beyond the yoga mat.
Over 8 sessions in the autumn of 2021 (starting on 9 Septemer), participants are given the chance to improve their knowledge of basic yoga philosophy. With special focus on chapters 1 + 2 of the Yoga Sutra, we go through each verse/sutra, discuss its meaning and each Sutra is linked to and can be understood/applied in our everyday lives. We also learn to chant every sutra in Sanskrit as this was the traditional way of learning in ancient times. This way, participants get an insight into how chanting can also be used as a tool for increased concentration, focus and inner well-being.
The course is open to all levels of yoga practitioners but we have a limited number of places. Each session will take place live in the shala and will be broadcast (and recorded) via Zoom. The course is run in partnership with Medborgarskolan and all registrations are done via their website (click the link). Existing season card (1,3,5 months) holders at Ashtanga Yoga Malmö receive a 20% discount on this course (not possible to combine with other discounts)
