Philosophy, as defined by the Concise Oxford Dictionary, is a love of wisdom or knowledge, especially that which deals with ultimate reality, or with the most general causes and principles of things.
In this series we will take a brief look at the history and some of the key ancient texts of yoga to explore the roots of this vast topic and how they connect to our practice today.
We will ask ourselves the questions and explore:
What is Yoga? What is Iyengar Yoga? Why Yoga today?
