Yoga Philosophy for Beginners

with Maria Pramaggiore

Thursdays 7:00pm-8:00pm

September 3, 10, 17, 24

You may know that yoga encompasses far more than the physical poses (asanas). This course offers an accessible exploration of the “whys” behind the 8 limbs of yoga: yama and niyama, asana, pranayama, and meditation (dharana, dhyana, and samadhi). Join us for an in-depth look at the core principles that underlie the ancient tradition of yoga. This series of four one-hour classes will explore two key texts of Vedic philosophy: Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and The Bhagavad Gita. Each session will include instructor presentation and opportunities for discussion/Q&A. It is recommended that you attend all 4 sessions, but you will benefit from individual sessions as well.

  • Series: $50 (includes all 4 sessions)
  • Per class: $15
