An Introduction to The Yoga Sūtra of Patañjali

  • Fire Horse Yoga 513 1/2 Main Street Jasper, IN, 47546 United States (map)

The Yoga Sūtra of Patañjali is the seminal text on yoga philosophy and has influenced our modern day practice of yoga in countless ways.

In this three hour workshop we will dive into the deep history of this classical yoga text, explore important concepts from this work, and begin a discussion about what it all means and how it applies to us some 1,000 years later.

An understanding of The Yoga Sūtra of Patañjali is critical for anyone interested in teaching yoga or deepening their practice and understanding of how and why yoga works.

All participants are required to have a copy of The Yoga Sūtra of Patañjali (any translation).

About your teacher:
Carrie Klaus, E-RYT, YACEP 
Owner/Director of Inner Spring Yoga and The Kula Center

Inspired by the Jivamukti Yoga Method, you'll find Carrie's classes to be a mix of serious yoga focus and light-hearted fun. Each class is different and challenging, covering a wide variety of yoga postures to help you transcend the limitations of your mind. Carrie believes that every person can practice yoga and will help you find your most comfortable pose through the use of props and various modifications. Carrie's classes also include a good dose of yoga philosophy. Her classes will encourage you to challenge yourself mentally and physically all while you're having fun!

Carrie began her yoga practice in 2003 after the birth of her first daughter. She started yoga as a way to get her body in shape after pregnancy, but quickly realized that yoga had so much more to offer. While continuing her physical practice she began to deepen her knowledge of yoga. As a result of experiencing greater peace in her life, Carrie decided to begin sharing her love of yoga with others. She enrolled in teacher training and has been sharing her love of yoga ever since.

Carrie and her husband, Rob, opened Inner Spring Yoga in 2013 with the intention of creating a heart centered community in which Southern Indiana and Louisville residents can learn the teachings of yoga and equip themselves to spread peace and kindness into the world.

Carrie completed her 200 hour teacher training at Eternal Health Yoga under the guidance of Shelli Carpenter. In addition to holding a 200 hour certificate and being registered with Yoga Alliance, Carrie also holds a teacher training certificate in Yin Yoga Practice and Theory which she received under the guidance of Paul Grilley, and is currently working toward receiving her 500 hour teaching certification at Asheville Yoga Center. Carrie has practiced under many amazing teachers including Sharon Gannon, David Life, Doug Swenson, Anna Ferguson, Julie Kirkpatrick and Michael Johnson. Carrie continues to learn new information to share with her classes by participating in workshops and trainings.

Carrie is a lifelong resident of Southern Indiana, where she lives with her husband, 2 daughters and 3 cats. When Carrie isn't teaching yoga she's busy watching her daughters compete in swimming and gymnastics.
