The Science of Yoga

Interactive seminar, 9.15 am - 6.00 pm, 29 to 31 March 2019.

Featured Speaker:Pedro Oliveira
Venue:Bolitho House

An interactive exploration of key aphorisms of the Yoga-SŪtras of PataÑjali this event is now full. Registrations closed.

The essential teachings of Yoga were codified, many centuries ago, by Patañjali in his Yoga-Sūtras. According to such teachings, Yoga is both a science and a way of life that can lead the practitioner to a direct knowledge of his or her own essential nature.

In this seminar we will delve into some of the key aphorisms of the Yoga-Sūtras and seek to find out their relevance to our own understanding of life. We will also try to understand, together, the process of Samyama that leads to an unconditioned awareness of consciousness in its essential nature.
