Yoga Sutras - A beginner's introduction with Shantala

The Yoga Sūtras have come to be accepted as the primary text on yoga philosophy in which Patañjali, the author of this seminal work, focuses on yoga as a method of transforming the way we think, communicate, and act by directing our attention inward and cultivating inner contentment. There are a 196 concise aphorisms or statements that express the subtle aspects of yoga that were written in Sanskrit and provide tools and techniques on the path of Yoga.

Discover this authoritative work through the traditional and meditative approach of chanting – a call and response format most suitable for beginners. The rhythmic recitation of the sūtras will help you become familiar with the vocabulary of Yoga, before some key concepts are explained.

This session will include guided mantra meditations to appreciate this process of learning through sound.

Born and raised in Bangalore, India, Shantala Sriramaiah founded Sanskrit Belgium with the intention of continuing her family tradition. She credits much of her knowledge to her mother, Saroja, who taught regular classes in their home for over 30 years. Shantala feels very fortunate to have attended a school with Sanskrit in the mainstream curriculum. She had the opportunity to learn the script, grammar as well as important epics and scriptures from an early age.

More recently, she certified to teach Vedic chanting under the strict guidance of Radha Sundarajan and continues almost daily lessons and practice with her. Shantala is keen to make this tradition accessible to an international audience.
