Philosophy Intensive Module with Leigha Butler, May 17-19

Philosophy: Living the Texts of Yoga

May 17-19, 2019

Teacher: Leigha Butler

YTT 200 hour, yoga teacher training, hudson valley, kingston, ny, modulesTogether the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras form the backbone of the yoga system. One of the most beloved and widely read texts in the world, the Gita, is just as valuable to yoga practitioners today as it was when it was written over 2,500 years ago. Likewise, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras is a still-relevant, totally accessible and indispensable guide for each and every soul who sets out to practice yoga in any form. Over the course of the weekend, Leigha conducts easily digested lessons that break down the most salient concepts from each text. You will walk away with a strong understanding of yoga’s foundational principles and a practical plan for incorporating them into your day-to-day life. Learn:

  • Essential yoga concepts and tenets from The Yoga Sutras and The Bhagavad Gita, like:
    • Establishing mental tranquility
    • Abiding by the 8-limbed path
    • Practicing consistently with non-attachment
    • Focusing on a single-pointed purpose or calling
    • Understanding one’s own obstacles and gifts on the path

Required Texts: (Please bring these)

with Laura Olson

Saturday, April 27th, 12:00-2:00pm

$30 to register/ $35 day-of

Midtown Studio

Often we focus so much on the pose that we forget there’s deep magic in the middle places. Take a deep dive into transitions, jumps, binds and inversions with a touch of Lila, a playful approach. Bring your questions, favorite and least favorite poses and transitions, and don’t forget your sense of adventure.

A devoted Ashtangi and reverently rebellious yoga teacher, she has studied extensively in the United States as well as in Mysore, India with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois. Laura teaches both traditional Ashtanga as well as Ashtanga-influenced vinyasa in workshops, classes, and private lessons in the New York City and Woodstock areas.
