Linked to the previous day by dealing with relationship and how yoga and its tools can help us develop healthy and happy relationships to ourselves and others. We will explore the ideas Patanjali presents in the Yoga Sutra that deal with relationship, specifically Yama and Niyama, but we will also look at other sutra that are concerned with relationship and how we can use them to improve our relationships with ourselves and others.
The day will include practice, study, discussion, reflection through meditation and, as with the previous day, some fun! If people have a copy of The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali they can bring this along but this is not essential as all relevant material will be clearly referenced for further reflection. Both days will be suitable for, and helpful to, both student teachers and those with more experience.
