Svādhyāya ~
Eden Yoga’s new book club!

Svādhyāya (Devanagari: स्वाध्याय) is a Sanskrit term which means self-study and study of sacred texts.

My intention is for this to be a casual, fun get-together in which we explore yoga philosophy and how it relates to our lives.
Attend every month or whenever you can. See in-person meeting times below.

In-person format*: Each month we read a few recommended chapters from the assigned “inspired” text, along with a few related verses from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. I’ll offer a few ideas or questions to get the conversation going. I can’t wait to see where our conversations lead us!
Online format: The topics, sutras, and excerpts from the readings (along with some of my thoughts on the topic) will appear in a blog format. I would love to continue the conversation online in the comments section! This also allows those who cannot be there in person to participate.

*There is no cost for this, but PLEASE let me know if you plan to attend, as the number of participants will affect our meeting location.

Svadhyaya Book Club Schedule

Every meeting we will be referring to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. There are many translations. Use B.K.S. Iyengar’s or whichever version you like.
