KYM brings to you Module – 3 of Sūtra Sojourns – a Webinar based immersion into the Yogasūtra, this time focusing on Chapter – 3 of the text. This webinar is open to all those who are interested in going deeper into the Yogasūtra in a structured manner.
At the very heart of Yoga practice and application of Yogic tools, lies the timeless teachings of Patañjali in the Yogasūtra. With every Sūtra offering so much scope for contemplation, the text itself is a valuable treatise on the workings of the human mind and the necessity for mental and emotional balance, above all else. The Yogasūtra was also the foundation upon which both Śrī T Krishnamacharya and Śrī TKV Desikachar built up their teachings, and a study of the Yogasūtra can be an insightful and transformative experience for Yoga enthusiasts and others as well.
This four-part webinar series, “Sūtra Sojourns,” has been designed with the intention of delving into the Yogasūtra, through the teachings of Śrī T Krishnamacharya and Śrī Desikachar, while also drawing upon the insights provided in the commentary of Vyāsa and other major commentaries and sub-commentaries. Where necessary, cross references to other texts such as Taittirīya Upaniṣad, Praśna Upaniṣad, Chāndogya Upaniṣad, Bhagavadgītā, Haṭha-yoga-pradīpikā, Yoga-yajñavālkya-saṁhita, Yoga Rahasya, Yogañjalisāram and Dhyānamālika will be made. the third chapter addresses Siddhi-s, the unfolding potential of the human mind made possible through Saṁyama. The first two modules conducted through 2020 focused on chapters 1 and 2 of the Yogasūtra and this present module will take participants through a detailed immersive study of chapter 3 – Vibhūtipādaḥ.
The registered participants will get access to view the class recordings for the duration of the course. Schedule of such uploads will be shared later. Class notes will be made accessible to all registered participants.
This webinar series will be anchored by Nrithya Jagannathan, Director, KYM Institute of Yoga Studies.
