Yoga Practice and the Katha Upanishad | 2:00-5:00pm
Afternoons with Tias & Surya series
The Katha Upanishad is one of the earliest teachings on yoga. Through beautiful and dynamic language, it elucidates the path of yoga through the delightful tale of a yoga boy who dies prematurely. In this class we start with an overview of the book’s central teaching and then practice yoga for 90 minutes. We then spend the last hour of the class exploring selected passages from the text that speak directly to the experience of the state of yoga. Please read the Katha Upanishad in advance of the class.
