Gita and Sutras Study & Afternoon Tea with Dina

 

April 27th. May 18th. June 22nd. July 20th. August 24th. September 28th. Sundays 1pm-2pm

Once a month on Sunday – FREE!!!! Come together as a community and study the philosophy behind our yoga practice. Handouts will be provided at each session.
The Bhagavad-Gita is the record of a conversation between a young man and God (in the form of Krishna). The young warrior, Arjuna, from the royal Pandava family, is in a state of panic on the morning of a battle – the ‘enemies’ he is expected to fight are cousins he knows well. In this desperate predicament, Arjuna turns to his charioteer, Krishna, for help. The answers he gets are not exactly what he wants to hear, but it is Krishna’s opportunity to tell a mortal about how the universe operates, and the best approach to life.

The greatest classical text from the yoga school of Indian philosophy is the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali, written in the second century BC. These “threads” on yoga or union, are extremely terse, stating concisely and often precisely, essential points or techniques. Originally these teachings were oral and were explained and interpreted by commentaries from a teacher guiding the student.

“We will be studying concepts from both texts. Copies of the books will be available at the studio for students to borrow and may also be available for purchase. Handouts will be provided as well. Please join us for engaging conversation regarding the philosophy behind our yoga practice. Tea and treats will be provided.”
