The Essence of Practice

Saturday 12:00 noon – 4:00 pm &
Sunday 11:00 am – 3:00 pm


“The Essence of Practice” During this course of study, students will explore the central aspects of the 8 limbs of yoga as presented in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Particular attention will be placed on helping each person to develop the values and skills required to deepen in the practice. This involves practical applications of asana, pranayama, meditation and their philosophical underpinnings.

Students and teachers from all yogic traditions will benefit from the opportunity to dedicate an extended and focused period of time to discover for themselves the value of yoga as a complete system of practice and living. All participants will commit to working together in a way that embodies the practice values needed to sustain a sincere, committed, open-minded inquiry in a supportive and compassionate environment

This program is especially well suited for students and teachers who have completed any prior Essence of Practice program at The Yoga Solution. Other students of yoga with interest in the following are encouraged to join the 2021 program:

• Deepening your experience and understanding of asana & pranayama
• Cultivating the spiritual dimension of yoga
• Establishing clarity, continuity, and a life affirming practice
• Developing skills for the practical application of yogic values and philosophy in everyday living

David Sirgany is an ardent practioner of Iyengar Yoga for thirty years, whose depth and passion for the subject shine forth brightly in his teaching. He has studied on numerous occasions directly with BKS Iyengar and his family in India, and teaches both nationally and internationally.
