Yogic Texts with Marcy Braverman Goldstein, PhD

March 1 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Yogic Texts:  Upanishads, Bhagavadgita, Yoga Sutras
The wisdom of these ancient texts is timeless and relevant to our 21st century lives.  In this class, we’ll explore the classics, and you’ll gain answers to good questions, such as:  What do the Upanishads say about truth?  Does the Bhagavadgita inspire devotion to God, self-realization, non-violence, and/or social justice?  Did Patanjali describe the first asana sequences in the Yoga Sutras?  Do the words “atman” and “purusha” refer to the same thing?  Looking at these texts in chronological order, and discussing the similarities and differences between their teachings, will enhance your understanding of yoga traditions.
*Includes a handout with common Sanskrit vocabulary.  You may wish to bring a journal.  RYTs earn CEUs.
