– Exploring the Four Chapters of the Yoga Sūtra of Patañjali
The Art of Sūtra Psychology Modular Workshops are limited to a maximum of five students to allow for a personalised approach and in-depth transmission between teacher and student. They are a series of four 2-day Workshop modules.
“During such a moment, without distractions,
the power of the source of perception,
full of clarity and completeness, shines forth.”
– T Krishnamacharya
Based in the Cotswolds, they are intended for those Yoga students who, having completed a Sūtra Psychology Module One, wish to further explore, through a series of two-day courses, the primary principles and teachings from T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar on the Yoga Sūtra and how they inspire and guide our Yoga either for personal development or, if relevant, to enhance professional skills.
They are presented with the aim of reflecting the fundamentals of Śrī T Krishnamacharya’s teaching, namely, transmission occurs through the direct experience of the teacher with the student’s personal practice and study Sādhana.
“For Yoga Teachers it is important to understand
the movement of the mind as well as the body.”
– TKV Desikachar
Even though the Yoga Sūtra teachings and techniques developed in the Art of Sūtra Psychology Modular options can enhance any Yoga Teacher’s professional skills in the fields of Yoga Psychology and Yoga Therapeutic Healthcare, there is no requirement to teach or intend to teach Yoga. This is not the role of the course.
In fact, not everybody wants to or actually needs to become a Yoga teacher to further their practice and study. Here the priorities are towards personal development and thus questions relating to our personal practice and study are the priorities. These Workshops reflect this viewpoint.
“Abhyāsa, when performed with reverence,
without interruption, over a long period of time,
will result in a healthy body, acute senses
and extraordinary alertness.”
– T Krishnamacharya
The aim is that we are all here in this course as students and it offers an opportunity for all teachers to step back from their teaching role and re-enhance their personal study and practice path.
The Art of Sūtra Psychology Modular Workshops focus topics are listed below for each two-day Module:
Chapters One and Two, may be undertaken in any order, though both need to be undertaken before undertaking Modules Four and Five, around Chapters Three and Four.
