  • Yoga Philosophy Term 1 (10 weeks)
    Wednesday, 27 February  2019 - Wednesday, 3 April  2019
    6:30 pm - 7:20 pm

What’s it all about?

In the west, we all know the physical branch of Yoga–Hatha Yoga—but Yoga is so much more than that. It offers a full spectrum of practices for body, mind (including emotions) and spirit. Join our Yoga teacher Chitra Stern for this exploration of Yoga philosophy and practice, learning and practising tools to support every aspect of life. Classes will include an introduction to:

  • Meditation
  • Raja Yoga—key teachings from the classical text, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, including the 8 limbs of Yoga
  • Bhakti Yoga—opening our hearts with practices including kirtan (chanting) and sacred sound, and gratitude
  • Karma Yoga—doing our daily work as Yoga practice, letting go of our attachments to the results of what we do and simply being in the joy of doing what we are doing, and the power of service
  • Jnana Yoga—diving within to explore the ultimate inner question—Who am I?
  • Looking after our physical body with Yoga – Hatha Yoga, relaxation techniques and yogic diet

One of the things I love about Yoga is how broad it is – not everything appeals to everyone, but there is definitely something for everyone that really can make a difference. In this course, we will look at many aspects of Yoga and we can each take on board the components that resonate and work for us. This course is open to beginners to Yoga and more experienced students – hope to see you there! – Chitra.

Her focus in Yoga is on opening to our natural inner peace, freedom and joy by letting go of competition, accepting and enjoying ourselves as we are, being present in the moment and having fun!
