Threads of Lineage :: Connecting Ancient Texts to the Modern Yogini | A 50-hour YTT Immersion


What lessons do the traditional yoga texts have to teach us in this modern-day life?

The two texts typically covered in yoga teacher trainings are Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and Svatmarama’s Hatha Pradipika, but there’s a wealth of texts that influence the yoga practice beyond these two compilations. Often it is hard to understand the link between these seemingly esoteric books and our modern day lives, but in this immersion we will dive in and explore the practices shared by the rishis from the bizarre to the extremely practical. You’ll find that some techniques you already practice, and you’ll discover others that provide benefit to your daily routines and rituals. As we look closely, we’ll examine how the limbs of yoga shift from text to text, and that we’ve lost some of the preparatory techniques and practices as we’ve distilled the meditation practices to fit our modern lives. Discover the roots of the asanas we still practice today, and find a few new ones that provide benefit to your yoga practice.
