Join Natalie, Co-Founder of Vasu Studio, every month as she breaks down “The Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali.” The Yoga Sutras are an ancient foundational yogic text which are considered the primary source for the practice of yoga. This book describes the spiritual practice of yoga, explains what is is and why we practice it.
The Yoga Sutras contain over 200 ‘threads’ and topics which are often difficult to understand. Natalie will break down one sutra at time during this class with the use of visual meditation, discussion, + ceremony, providing you with the tools to embody the Yoga Sutras and apply them to your daily life.
