“You cannot hope to experience inner peace or freedom without understanding
The workings of your mind and of human consciousness” BKS Iyengar
During this five day workshop, we will explore the soul psychology of the Yoga Sutras. We will examine the model of the mind and consciousness (citta) as laid out by the sage Patanjali, including the higher states of mind and the perennial guna-theory. Additionally, we will explore the multi-faceted meanings of yoga and its relevance for Iyengar Yoga practice. We will examine how yoga is a holistic system in which all the definitions and meanings of yoga play a vital role in moving the practitioner towards positive transformation and the inner Abiding Self (Purusha).
