Sunday Yoga Book club

As we are still getting to grips with this new class format, we will stick with the same theme for now:“What is yoga?”

Weeks 1 & 2: The last two readings looked at different aspects of what yoga means, and how yoga changes in different cultures and eras.

Week 3 will focus on the same subject – What is Yoga?”.  This approach gives us a depth of knowledge to build on, and allows us to compare our new reading with previous readings. different aspects of Karma yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Jnana yoga and Raja yoga give people the opportunity to work with which ‘path’ best suits your personality.

Read pages 6-7 of Yoga Mind Body by the Sivananda Vedanta Centre  https://www.amazon.com/Yoga-Mind-Sivananda-Vedanta-Centre/dp/0756636744

Week 4 (28th July) invites participants to research the path of Karma Yoga, and chose a reading that is interesting. Ali will supply a set reading for week 4 for those people who find online research challenging.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO IN PREPARATION?
1) Read the selected pages closely, or focus on a particular passage.
2) As you read, answer these 3 questions: What do you like about this reading? What don’t you agree with? Is there anything you find confusing or want clarified?
3) Reflect on what you think about the article/book/ passage.
4) Make notes if you want to clarify your thoughts
5) Discuss your ideas with members of the Sunday Book club
