One-hour discussions, based on readings and commentary of the text. If you wish to explore Hathayoga in depth, then these classes will help. The ultimate aim of the yoga in the Hathayogapradeepika is to attain the state of “unmani avastha” or the transcendent state of [no]mind.

Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā (Light on Hatha Yoga) is a classic fifteenth-century Sanskrit manual on haṭha yoga, written by Svātmārāma. It is among the most influential surviving texts on haṭha yoga, being one of the three classic texts alongside the Gheranda Samhita and the Shiva Samhita. Nearly all of modern yoga is based on teachings from these texts. We will read the text in English and discuss the teachings and practices, providing as much current scientific verification as possible. Much of the language in the text is esoteric and understanding relies upon commentary from practitioners. The ultimate lofty goal of the practices is to attain the state of ‘unmani avastha’ or the complete cessation of ‘mind’. One needs to proceed cautiously. The Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā offers sensible knowledgeable guidance.
