The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is a 195-verse study that is filled with the knowledge of yoga. The sutras are arguably the most valuable yogic text with specific practices in ending the root cause of suffering, the absence of self-knowledge (avidya).
In this weekend, we will unravel the goal of yoga, discuss the various states of consciousness, explore tools on how to exist in the world, disect the eight limbs of yoga, study the different levels of samadhi, and learn the many benefits that arise from this practice. This workshop will allow you ample time for reflections and journaling as an opportunity to connect theses ancient teachings to your modern day experience.

This weekend immersion will be taught by Candra Smith. Learn more about her here.

Attendees will learn:
// Ashtanga and the 8 limbs of yoga, including each of the limbs’ various techniques
//techniques and practices associated with kriya yoga

// the historical and/or traditional yogic philosophy and texts as it relates to the Yoga Sutras
// the origin and the definition of the sutras and yoga

// the methods of how to teach Ashtanga and Kriya Yoga (asana, pranayama, and concentration practices) to students
// how to incorporate the themes of the yamas and niyamas into class
// how to provide cues that facilitate sensory withdrawal, concentration, meditation, and – ultimately – unity/oneness
