Patanjali Yoga Sutras Retreat

This Retreat is Not in Silence

Description of the course

This retreat features two yoga classes and meditations per day along with a total of 7 yoga philosophy talks on the Yoga Sutras of Sage Patanjali along with the regular daily ashram schedule.

The Yoga Sutras describe the path of Raja Yoga, almost 200 sutras (aphorisms) for developing mastery of the mind. The exact date when Sage Patanjali compiled this manual for the study and practice of yoga is not known, but estimates range between 5000 B.C. and 300 A.D. The physical practice of yoga, Hatha Yoga, is only a small part of the science of yoga – this course introduces students to the depth and vastness of the subject as outlined by the ‘Father of Yoga’.

  • 9 Yoga Asana Classes
  • Meditation
  • 7 talks on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
  • Ashram Daily Schedule (including archana, bhajans, Amma’s darshan, beach meditation and satsangs)

I understood what it means to have a steady and comfortable posture so that your mind can become still. I felt guided because every step was visualized so well. Even as a raw yoga beginner, I felt equal to the others.

By practicing awareness in every part of the body and mind, the satsangs got more depth.
