Samkhya and Patanjali Yoga Sutras give us the theory foundation, whereas Yoga provides us with many techniques to achieve liberation.
Samkhya is a dualistic philosophy meaning a clear distinction between matter and consciousness. It is the base for systems of health and wellbeing, such as Yoga and Ayurveda.
At the time of Patanjali, there was a tendency toward non-duality. Samkhya was a new approach that became very popular.
This course will study the nature of duality and Samkhya's proposal to reach kaivelya: freedom from pain.
Studying the kinship between Samkhya, Patanjali yoga sutras, and Hatha Yoga will help you assimilate insight and knowledge of yoga's roots and origins and take you to a new depth level of appreciation for your yoga practice.
We welcome new teachers, dedicated practitioners of yoga, and students of philosophy.
