Online via Zoom
Monday Nov 16 to Saturday Nov 21, 2020 (six consecutive days), 6:30pm to 9:30pm PST
Course fee: $240 USD
Yoga Rahasya, “Secrets of Yoga”, is a 9th century masterpiece composed by the great yogi Nathamuni. The text offers profound insights into the goals, practices, and applications of yoga, including the use of yoga as therapy. Yoga Rahasya is perhaps the first classical text that extensively covers yoga for women and specifically addresses women’s needs.
Yoga Rahasya contains 277 verses divided into four chapters and covers a wide variety of topics in yoga. The text was revived by the “father of modern yoga”, Sri T. Krishnamacharya. This 15-hour workshop is a great opportunity to learn Yoga Rahasya from the renowned teacher Srivatsa Ramaswami, who studied with Krishnamacharya for 33 years.
