Yoga Sutra Study - Three Gunas

Coincidently, I came across this photo that so nicely clarifies the three gunas after our last sutra study discussion. 

We had previously discussed that the practice of yoga is a dualistic philosophy and recognizes there is a Purusha (the inner most unchanging individual self, or soul) and Prakriti (everything that changes… Nature). Which then brings us to identifying the three qualities of Prakriti known as the gunas.

Sutra Study Recap July 18

It was so nice to see some friendly faces via zoom for our Yoga Sutra discussion group. For some this was a review and for others this was the first time looking at this ancient text. I look forward to developing the conversation with the richness that lies ahead as we continue and meet again this Saturday. The yoga sutras are said to be one of the most  profound and enlightening studies of human nature and the search for spiritual liberation. I hope these group discussions will bring a depth to your yoga study and your life on and off the mat. Thank you all for coming!
