Sunday Yoga Book club
This class applies deeper knowledge to the different paths of yoga
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. Tip: put ‘karma yoga’ in the google search engine or look up the wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karma_yoga
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
Weeks 1 & 2: The last two readings looked at different aspects of what yoga means, and how yoga changes in different cultures and eras.
