Cost: $55 Single Session

Join Yoga Philosophy and Sanskrit scholar, Kate Holcombe, for an inspiring and insightful workshop on the history of Yoga philosophy and specifically, the richness of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. In this workshop we will primarily focus on the history of yoga philosophy as a means to help us reduce our experience of suffering and feel better in everyday life. We will also explore the differences between yoga philosophy and Hinduism, and how these two distinct philosophical systems have become confused and enmeshed over time.

It is appropriate for yoga enthusiasts of all levels and will include both lecture and discussion.
