Bringing Vijnana into Astanga

Vijnana means understanding, from inside, from one’s own experience – wisdom.  Vijnana Yoga is a practice based on Vijnana.  Astanga means eight limbs, referring to the eight limbs of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra.  The Astanga Vinyasa Yoga practice of Pattabhi Jois is based on the eight limbs.

In this workshop we will bring these two together, philosophically and practically.

Date:  Sunday  10.00 – 17.00      New date will be posted soon
