While millions of people practice Hatha Yoga for greater physical health and vitality, many are less aware of the mental benefits of Yoga. Codified by Shri Patanjali over 2000 years ago, the Yoga Sutras form the foundation for a complete Yoga practice. The sacred text offers a unique perspective on the functioning of our mind and teaches us the eight-fold path of Yoga that leads to samadhi (enlightenment). To fully comprehend the philosophical and spiritual practice of Yoga, it is essential to understand this ancient text.

Acharya Hersh Khetarpal has studied the Yoga Sutras and many other Yoga scriptures since childhood from Shri Chaman Lal Kapur, her Guruji and father. With her extensive knowledge of and experience with Yoga in is entirety, she makes the deep teachings of Yoga easy to understand and practice.

This weekend seminar will provide in-depth study of the entire Yoga Sutras.  You will learn the practices and psychology of yoga and how to apply them in your life in today’s world.

In addition to 8 hours of lectures, there will be hatha yoga, meditation and chanting sessions. The program is also designed to allow plenty of break time to enjoy the peaceful outdoors at the Ashram.
