The Thread: Monthly Yoga Sutra Discussion
with Tamar Samir
The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali is a classical text on the philosophy and practice of Yoga. The word “sutra” means “thread” in Sanskrit. The text is composed of these threads, or verses, which weave together the knowledge and wisdom of yoga.
In this monthly class, we’ll read, translate, chant, and discuss the sutra in thematic clusters, in order to understand its original meaning and contemplate its relevance to our lives as contemporary yoga practitioners.
(These are optional—a text selection and chant sheet will be provided each month).
