Embodying The Yoga Sutra – Support, Direction & Space

In Embodying The Yoga Sutra, we focus on 18 of the most important sutra and show how each one illuminates the relationship between the body, the breath and the mind in a practical, clear and contemporary manner. The sutra are carefully deconstructed, put into context and then developed into ideas for practice. We examine the interplay of three key terms: support, direction and space, to further inform our understanding and application of the practice.
