RAJA YOGA - 20 session Online Course

This live online course will explore Wallace Slater’s book A Simplified Course of Raja Yoga, which follows the Yoga Sutras or Aphorisms of Patanjali.

There are eight steps, stages, or subdivisions: self-restraint (yama), self-discipline (niyama), posture (āsana), control of breath (prānayāma), control of the sense (pratyāhāra), concentration (dhāranā), meditation (dhyāna) and contemplation (samādhi).
We will thoroughly explore each step, with time for discussion and practice.
