Patañjali’s Yogasūtras: Foundations
with Chase Bossart
Fri. December 19, 6:30-9pm
Sat. December 20, 6-8:30pm
By all accounts, yoga has the capacity to transform not only how we move and breath but also how we feel and behave. In turn, according to the Yogasutras of Patañjali, yoga can also transform how other people feel and respond to us. The key to facilitating this change is the development of a set of attitudes within ourselves. Join us for an exploration of these attitudes and how they form a foundation of experience that fosters transformation. The evening will include lecture, discussion and two short meditation practices (asana and pranayama.) The presentation is both accessible to beginners and instructive for experienced practitioners. $45 for one/ $80 for both. Preregister at AYC or by email.
