In this Vinyasa Workshop, we’ll explore the Yoga Sutra, a yogic text written around 400 CE by Patanjali. We’ll look at key concepts from the text, such as non-reaction (vairāgya) and the five afflictions (kleshas), specifically attachment to pleasure and aversion to pain, and how we can incorporate these lessons on and off the mat. Come learn about the ancient teachings that shape our modern yoga practice, and how they are still be relevant today.
The workshop will begin with a “dharma talk” about the the Yoga Sutra, and then move into a more vigorous asana and pranayama practice.
Kristi Robinson, Mandee Metzger, Laura Hutchinson, and Joe Simek will be co-teaching the workshop. They are all recent graduates of Dragonfly’s 500 HR Advanced Vinyasa Teacher Training with Rolf Gates, internationally recognized yoga teacher and author of the seminal yoga book, Meditations From The Mat.
The workshop is part of Fostering The Flow: Dragonfly’s Yoga Festival, which is happening June 12 at Buckingham Friends School. All proceeds from the day will go to The Fiaria Project, a Bucks County nonprofit organization that supports local foster families.
The festival will have something for all experience levels, from Introduction to Yoga and Meditation workshops for beginners to Vinyasa workshops for more seasoned yogis. Throughout the day, there will be local vendors and a food truck set up on the lawn.
Rolf Gates who will be offering a Dharma Talk at the end of the evening. Entry to his talk is included when you purchase a workshop pass. Join us!
