About the Workshop

Hatha Pradipika is the oldest and most widely used ancient text on asanas. The course consists of a daily practice in chanting, Sanskrit and Hatha Yoga Pradipika philosophy, in the same way yoga aspirants are taught at the Ashtanga Sharath Yoga Center in Mysore, India. We invite you to dive deeply into the lineage of Hatha Yoga together with Lakshmisha, which will be profoundly constructive for practitioners of all levels. In these four days a number of common philosophical quests will be posed, and we will explore and discuss possible answers together.

What you will learn

  • The basics of Sanskrit
  • Chanting of certain mantras plus understanding their history
  • Explanation of Hatha Yoga Pradipika and it's meaning in the Yoga tradition.

This is a unique opportunity to meet and study with a genuine Indian scholar, with an amazing depth of knowledge. After this course you will have a better understanding of the vast lore of yoga scriptures and how they relate to your yoga practice on a practical level.
