4 x 4: A Moving Meditation on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra
with Monja Mani & Tamar Samir
Saturday, January 31, 2-4pm
Prema Yoga, Brooklyn

In the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, the first four verses, called chatur sloki, are considered to be the most important; the distillation of the entire yoga philosophy in an elegant and compact foursome.

In this workshop, led by Monja Mani & Tamar Samir, both Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga teachers, we will chant the chatur sloki and explore their meaning in an experiential way, through asana, pranayama, meditation and sacred sound. Expect all the elements of Jivamukti that you love!
