A 4 part course for those wanting to deepen their understanding and experience of Yoga as a transformational path, with Amelia McCombie at Eastwest Yoga.
Have you ever wondered “What is Yoga?” There are many definitions of Yoga, and many different approaches to the practice. According to the traditional teachings from The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Yoga is all about our relationship with our mind. The definition of Yoga given in the Sutras is: Sutra 1.2: Yogas citta vrtti nirodhah, Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind. Patanjali also gives us a Path called The 8 Limbs of Yoga, consisting of 8 practices/limbs, that support us in the pursuit of bringing more stillness to the mind. Asana (the physical postures) that we do in our Yoga classes, is just one of these 8 limbs.
In this 4 Week course we will be exploring the 8 limbs that make up this path of Yoga, as well as some of the other teachings from the Yoga Sutras to give you more understanding and experience of Yoga as a transformational path. Each session will include a combination of Practice (Asana, Mantra & Pranayama) & Philosophy.
Amelia has offered this course once before at Eastwest and is excited to offer it again. There is a limit of 10 spaces for the 4 weeks to allow students to dive deep into the teachings in a small and supportive environment.
Student testimonial from last course:
“Beyond Asana has felt like a sanctuary. As a short introduction to the Sutras it has engaged me at emotional, intellectual & spiritual levels, as well as grounding me physically in calm stillness. Amelia is a beautiful teacher and the small group felt like a safe space to explore uncomfortable truths on the path to greater awareness. Loved it!

I am so grateful to my teacher Dena Kingsberg for sharing these teachings and practices with me as they have changed my life (and continue to do so).
What an honour to be able to share them with you, at Eastwest.
