The Yoga Sutras is more than just a book. It is a vehicle that carries the energy and wisdom of Yoga. Drawing on The Tantra of the Yoga Sutras by Alan Finger with Wendy Newton (due from Shambhala Press in fall 2018!) this workshop will introduce you to a whole new way of seeing the Sutras through the lens of ISHTA Tantra. The eight limbs take us on a journey from avidya to viveka — from the mind’s tendency to mis-misperceive reality to the clarity of seeing things as they really are. ISHTA Tantra teaches us that to meet the challenges of avidya, we must find samadhi, and allow the wisdom to flow back into our living. This five-hour workshop will initiate a deeper understanding of how the Yoga Sutras describes this journey through the four Padas, allowing us to create a life full of inspiration, purpose, and grace.
Alan will introduce the Sutras and give the tantric framework and then Wendy will lead you on a conversational and interactive journey through the four padas, showing how they relate to the spiral of Tantra.
Whether you have been reading the Sutras for years or just discovered them, this workshop will provide a new doorway into the yoga teachings. Join us and enrich your practice, your teaching, and your living through this contemporary take on ancient wisdom!
