One of the earliest known definitions of Yoga comes from the Bhagavad Gita, which is the conversation between Krishna and the warrior Arjuna about the many paths of Yoga. Inverse 2.50, we get the phrase from Krishna, “yogah karmasu kaushalam” that means “Yoga is the skill in actions.” In this workshop, we will take these three words as a skeleton key too pen up the entire Bhagavad Gita (and Yoga!) to really understand what Krishna means here. This workshop is by no means mere theory, but rather we will then see how we can use this early definition of Yoga and the Gita to integrate a sense of mindful skill into our lives, on and off the mat.
No prior knowledge of the Bhagavad Gita or Sanskrit is required for this workshop, and it is open to both curious beginners and experienced practitioners and teachers.
