What is Yoga?
Curious to learn more about the philosophies and practices of yoga? Hear from Rebecca Weisman, Director of the Iyengar Yoga Center of Vermont, as she introduces key passages from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali to explore some classical definitions of yoga and how they may (or may not!) coincide with modern notions of yoga. Together the group will discuss how these meaning-making practices can be integrated into everyday life. All are welcome.
Rebecca Weisman is the director of the Iyengar Yoga Center of Vermont and has been teaching yoga in Vermont since 2006. She has studied with many senior Iyengar teachers, has traveled to India to study directly with the Iyengar family, and has been a student of yoga philosophy for over a decade under the guidance of Indian and Vedic scholar Edwin Bryant. She teaches public and private classes with a speciality in therapeutic/medical yoga and has led yoga philosophy study groups for many years. She has taught as an adjunct professor at Burlington College, Saint Michael’s College, and UVM.
