Chanting The Yoga Sutras
4-Part Course with Kiki Flynn
Wednesday's in January 8pm-9pm
$55 for 4 classes
The Yoga Sutra is a foundational text for yoga practice and yoga mind. Chanting the sutras is a transformational vibrational experience and a catalyst for understanding how ancient yoga supports a contemporary platform for daily well-being. Our class will include lots of chanting as well as some discussion.
All levels of students are welcome.
We will begin with Samadhi Pada, the first chapter of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and work through chronologically.
I have been practicing yoga for 36 years and Ashtanga Yoga since 1993. In 1995 I first traveled to Mysore, India to study further with Ashtanga founder Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. After a few trips to Mysore, Jois told me to learn Aditya Hrdayam, a passage from the Ramayana known as the Surya Namaskara prayer. This sent me on a journey to find a Sanskrit teacher and led me to the door of my professor, Dr. M.A Jayashree. From that day forward my daily studies expanded to include 2-4 hours of Sanskrit chanting and philosophy. I learned in the old way – without books – just by listening, repeating and memorizing. Chanting in this way flooded my heart and mind in a vibrant and meditative experience while illuminating a more profound understanding of yoga.
