(With a special focus on Sutras 2.28 to 3.16)
4 corners Yoga Studio

“The Yoga Sutras (a collection of aphorisms offered more than 2,000 years ago by the Indian Sage, Patanjali) is still regarded as authoritative. The Sutras were the earliest (and are still the most profound and enlightening) study of the human psyche. In them, Patanjali describes the enigma of human existence. He shows how, through yoga practice, we can transform ourselves, gain mastery over the mind and emotions and overcome obstacles to our spiritual evolution.” (B.K.S. Iyengar)
Edwin Bryant received his PhD from Columbia University, taught Hinduism at Harvard and is presently a professor at Rutgers University. He has received numerous awards and fellowships, published six books and authored a number of articles. His latest book is a translation of and commentary on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (North Point Press, 2009).
Edwin has been practicing yoga for over 30 years, a number of them spent in India studying with traditional teachers, where he returns yearly. In addition to his academic course load, Edwin currently teaches workshops on the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, and Hindu Philosophy at yoga studios and teacher training courses throughout the country. Edwin’s presentations are filled with wisdom and humor.
No prior knowledge of the sutras is necessary in order to attend the workshop.
Cost: $170 full workshop if paid in full by 10/1. $190 after 10/1. Individual sessions can be figured at the rate of $20 per hour. Payment refunded (less a $25 processing fee) only if space can be filled.
