The origin of yoga
We are honored to host the renowned Indian teachers and Sanskrit scholars Dr. M.A. Jayashree and Professor M.A. Narasimha on their European tour.
From their institute in Mysore, India, they teach Sanskrit and yoga philosophy to students from all over the world who come to study Astanga Yoga at its source.
Jayashree is a specialist in teaching students with the traditional call and response method called 'Sruti Parampara', where you "sing" and recite the traditional yoga scriptures Yogasutra and Bhagavadgita. Narasimhan offers lectures and discussions on yoga philosophy and provides a broad and deep understanding and connection to the deeper aspects of yoga in an easy-to-understand, engaging and stimulating way.
This is a unique opportunity to be taught by some of the most respected and experienced teachers in this area of knowledge. The workshop is an opportunity for all yoga students, yoga teachers and anyone else interested in yoga, Indian language, culture and tradition to enrich their understanding of the philosophical framework of yoga directly from a clear and authoritative source.
At the workshop you will learn the original source script of yoga, the yoga sutra of Patanjali - by singing the verses, followed by lectures and discussion on the meaning of them. In this way, you gain insight and knowledge of the roots and origins of yoga and expand your own experience and knowledge.
'Srutiparamparaa' call and response method, is a traditional and effective method of pronunciation, remembering and understanding Sanskrit language and texts. The method is accessible to all, and is in itself a traditional and transformative yoga practice.
"Dr. M. A. Jayashree's recitation of Sri Pantajali's Yoga Sutras is superior. Not only is her intonation and pronunciation impeccable as one would expect from a Sanskrit teacher at her very high level, but her sincere and genuine connection to the text shines through clearly.
