Yoga philosophy with Ruth Westoby
Ruth leads yoga philosophy workshops. These sessions explore ideas and practices from the long history of yoga. Classes engage with texts through chanting, identifying the meaning of key concepts and discussing their relevance to our lives. Over the last few years we have looked at the Upaniṣads, the Yoga Sūtras, the Bhagavad Gītā, Saṇkhya, Vedanta, Tantra and Haṭha. These sessions are opportunities to come together and share our intrigue for these ancient and illuminating concepts and technologies.
The sessions are open to all. No previous knowledge is required.
If you have any questions please contact Ruth. Please also contact Ruth if you would like to be added to her email distribution list to receive updates about forthcoming sessions.
