Perhaps the most masterful expression of yoga to exist, the yoga sūtra, are the thread that takes us deep within. Not meant to be read as an English translation in a book, the yoga sūtra are part of a living and vibrant oral tradition. Composed in a system of knowing that lies outside of our own, the yoga sūtra are revealed through sound, and it is through this sound that its meaning is found. So often forgotten as we turn to translations for meaning, it is in discovering the sound of the yoga sūtra that its wisdom can be known. 

What to expect

We will be sounding the yoga sūtra together and directly experiencing their resonance. Then enquiring into the meaning of these sounds which are the very foundation of yoga. We will meditate with these sounds and investigate the very nature of meaning. 

• Sound the yoga sūtra and directly experience their resonance.
• Enquire into the meaning of these sounds, the very foundation of yoga.
• Meditate with the sounds of Sanskrit. 
• Investigate the very nature of meaning.

Your Teacher - Lucy Crisfield

Lucy lives with the sounds of Sanskrit burning in her heart, what are they, and what do they mean, really?! She has been surprised by the intensity with which they have gripped her, and have shaped her life over the past fifteen years. Her burning questions have propelled her toward the sounds of Sanskrit and have taken her to the feet of revered masters of the language who have broken her down again and again as she tried to analyse the language and fit it into a box. Patiently they have tired her questioning mind so that she could feel the vast capacities held within these sounds

Lucy is now a regular speaker at the World Yoga Festival, a plenary speaker at the British Wheel of Yoga Festival and the founder of ‘Original Wisdom’, a container through which she shares the inner teachings of mantra and yoga philosophy through sound, meditation and enquiry.
