Designed as a 5-hour study series every month, Saṁyama weekends begins with an immersion into the core principles, philosophy, practice and applications of the Yoga-aṣṭāṅga drawing not just from the Yogasūtra but also offering insights on the eight limbs of Yoga from the Haṭhayoga Pradīpikā, Yoga-yajñavālkya-saṁhita, Bhagavadgitā, Yogañjalisāram, Yoga Rahasya, Dhyānamālika, the Upaniṣads and the Purāṇā-s.
One limb will be taken up for study every month.
Yogāṅgānūṣṭhānāṭ aśuddhi kṣaye jñāna dīptiḥ āvivekakhyateḥ (Yogasūtra 2.28)
Patañjali emphasises that a sustained practice of the eight-limbed pathway of Yoga reduces the clouding of the mind, kindles the light of intuitive understanding and refined knowledge that shines within and also paves the way for the cultivation of discernment at all times and in all situations.
In present times, when personal and professional stress is very high, not to mention deep fear, uncertainty, a prevailing sense of cognitive dissonance and inability to reconcile one’s own core value system with social expectations, the Yoga-aṣṭāṅga offer a pathway to clarity, conviction, collaboration, so that we can each evolve to our highest inner potential, through a remarkable process of self-empowerment and transformation.
This course will be jointly anchored by senior teachers from the KYM, Mr. V Srinivasan (Executive Director, KYM) and Ms. Nrithya Jagannathan (Director, KYM Institute of Yoga Studies).
The registered participants will also get limited access to view the class recordings. Schedule of such uploads will be shared later.
