Yoga Philosophy: The Tree of Yoga - Part 1

Yoga is a vast and ancient body of philosophies and practices, descended from the Vedas and later the Upanishads. In this workshop we will organically explore together what yoga is and how it can be understood and practiced beyond the mat. We will discuss yoga philosophy and the texts pertaining to it, if relevant, while weaving in concepts from Taoism and Buddhism, which are highly complementary. No experience is necessary, only an open mind and willingness to explore what it is to be a human through the wonderful lens of yoga. Recommended to bring: pen, paper, and, if possible, a copy of the Yoga Sutras or Bhagavad Gita.

Workshop - Philosophy Discussion

Join me at Wonder Yoga for this second portion of ongoing discussion on yoga philosophy. Some of the materials from the last session may be covered as a refresher for those who attended and an introduction for those who missed the first session.

We will continue to slowly unpack yoga philosophy in an organic way, following our conversation wherever it might take us. We will place yoga within its proper historical context and continue to learn the practical ways in which it can be practiced in a modern day setting. We will begin with a short asana practice and end with a short meditation. All levels welcome, though all are encouraged to become somewhat familiar with the basic content of the Yoga Sutras beforehand. Bring a journal and a pen. It is also recommended to bring one or more copies of the Yoga Sutras.

Introduction to Yoga Philosophy

Yoga philosophy offers us a practical system for living our lives more fully, regardless of our backgrounds. Often misunderstood, we will take the time to make better sense of it.

This workshop will be broken down into three portions. We will begin with a short 30 minute vinyasa practice, in order to become grounded in our bodies and breath. Following the physical practice, we will have a roundtable discussion centered around breaking down the basics of the ancient and vast philosophy that underpins the physical practice. We will primarily be using the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali—one of the main Yogic texts—but will follow the conversation wherever it takes us. We will end our workshop with a short breathwork practice, and meditation.

No prior experience necessary, though it is recommended to bring a copy of the Yoga Sutras, if available. Recommended translations include BKS Iyengar, Edwin Bryant, Swami Satchitananda.
