CE Workshop | Exploring the Yoga Sutras Series, Part 3: Untangle the Applications of the Yoga Sutras

April 8, 2020, 10am ET

Yoga Alliance believes every human being has the right to practice yoga free from abuse, harassment, and manipulation. We are saddened by public reports of misconduct by Jafar Alexander, with whom we have worked closely, and who is stepping away from teaching yoga. For transparency and accountability, we will not be deleting video workshop replays featuring Jafar at this time; instead, we will be listening to the thoughts of our members on this subject. A statement for deeper context can be found here.

About This Workshop

The Yoga Sutras offer beautiful perspective to yoga and some of its core components. These sessions are moments where the yoga community will discuss certain pillars of the practice that come to us from the Yoga Sutras and ways to implement and/or apply them in our lives both on and off the yoga mat. Join Jafar for some communal dialogue and leave with real-world Yoga Sutra application.
