Classical Yoga of Patanjali

A philosophy and discussion weekend


March 1-3, 2019

Fri 5-8PM • Sat 9-4:30PM • Sun 9-4:30PM

Location: Journey Yoga, Calgary AB

As part of an oral tradition, the Sutras of Patanjali are intended to be studied in community. Sutras are “threads” of philosophy presented as short, terse statements. These threads reach back in time to when our ancient ancestors first began to meditate and explore the big questions of human existence. Patanjali’s sutras are designed to help you understand the experience of Samadhi, the bliss experienced when the mind is calm. This foundational yoga text contains ancient wisdom that remains relevant in our modern times. Through the lens of personal inquiry, uncover and demystify some of the most potent teachings of yoga and how they can deepen your yoga practice.

Key Concepts


Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras offer profound philosophy that will deepen your practice and inspire engagement in your life. We will explore the sutras through the lenses of Classical Yoga and Tantra Yoga.
With this workshop, you will not only gain a better understanding of what makes a yoga class more introspective and meaningful, you will also understand the depth of philosophy that exists within yoga.
This is a weekend full of self-discovery and insight. You will also learn:
• Who Patanjali is and how the Sutras are compiled
• The nature of the mind and how to harness its power
• Meditation tools and techniques
• The meaning of AUM or OM
• The five Kleshas or afflictions that keep us from experiencing inner peace
• The Ethics of Yoga: Yamas (restraints) and Niyamas (observances)
