The Secret Power of Yoga with Nischala Joy Devi
May 14, 2016
The Yoga Sutras, considered to be one of the most revered texts of yoga, is thought to be more than 2,500 years old. These ‘threads’ on yoga or union, state concisely and elegantly the essential wisdom to achieving self-realization. Originally these teachings were passed on in the ancient oral traditions, intimately shared from teacher to student. Even today almost every translation of the sutras includes pages and pages of master commentary deemed useful to impart the correct teachings, methods and sacred wisdom necessary to achieve Yoga.
In this workshop Nischala Joy Devi will impart her heart-centered intuitive interpretation of the Yoga Sutras from her book -The Secret Power of Yoga. Nischala Joy Devi is a divinely feminine perspective of the Yoga Sutras which offers students an opportunity to partake in the unfathomable sense of peace, emotional and spiritual enlightenment that is our birthright.
