Event description

Description

Since the early nineteen seventies the word yoga has entered the anglophone world. Other words followed in the footsteps of this word called Yoga: karma (law of retribution?), tapas (not a chain of restaurants), mantra (common in political discourse), and guru (expert?). All of these words have something in common: they are all instances of the Sanskrit language and are the lingua franca of tradition yoga!

Contemporary Yoga connotes in large measure gymnastic activities compounded with other less pervasive aspects of traditional yoga. One style of physical yoga is called Ashtanga–Yoga (the Eightfold Yoga) although the association of an eight-limbed technology of postures is however absent. The number ‘eight’ in Ashtanga-Yoga actually refers to the facets of a comprehensive philosophy belonging to the sage Shri Patanjali, a philosophy promoting a path to the realization of Self.

This course draws from his compendium, the Sutra of Patanjali. It presents this work in the light of its value as a systematic technology of personhood, a psychology, and a way of life – Philosophy- construed as creative and valuable. This course seeks to give a practical formulation of the Yoga of the eight limbs. It is being taught in its traditional way of Q & A; the course is allowed to take its course according to the questions asked. The first tutorial, however, will briefly refer to the text and its author as part of a great tradition, the Vedic tradition: the Yoga tradition

The course will be held very Friday at the Volunteer Center between 8th November and 29th November at the Volunteer Centre , 181 Melita Street Valletta by Yogi Marius Govinda (Dr. Mario Zammit).
