The Bhagavad Gita translates as ‘the Song of the Lord’ and takes the form of a conversation between a mortal human being and the Lord himself.


It is an ancient text but many of it’s teachings are as relevant today as they were when it was first written. Mahatma Gandhi used the Gita as his ‘go-to’ place of reference to develop the non-violent resistance ethos he was so famous for. The Gita was a spiritual and ethical guide throughout his life.


What can we learn from this text today?


How can the teachings Gandhi and millions of others have found so inspiring be helpful to us in our modern, cosmopolitan lives? In this lecture and discussion based session Katie Manitsas will explore a few of the key teachings from the Bhagavad Gita as we investigate how they apply to us, now. We will also discuss how the teachings of the Gita are applicable and relevant to those who practice yoga.


This is not an asana session bring an open mind, a pen and paper if you like to take notes and your questions.
