Ready or not, it’s back to school time! And have we got just the thing to add to your reading list this semester, and probably many semesters to come in your studies as students of yogadork-versity. Firstly, if you haven’t read the excerpt yet, be sure to do so, and then come on back to enter to win a copy of Threads of Yoga: A Remix of Patanjali’s Sutras, With Commentary and Reverie by Matthew Remski.
Just as the Bhagavad Gita has been interpreted by many a scholar in multiple fashions, there are dozens of translations of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras for the budding and seasoned yogi, alike. As a yoga teacher, Ayurvedic practitioner, novelist and poet, Matthew Remski does with his Threads what a diehard, fanboy might do in a discussion of video game history or analysis of Breaking Bad, he gives a passionate, in-depth and spirited commentary, respecting historical aspects while connecting them to our modern age. Through contemporary philosophy, psychology and neuroscience, Remski gives the ancient text new light while including some hidden gems and Easter eggs that we may have previously overlooked along the way.
Sound intriguing? This is definitely one to snuggle up with.
WIN: We are giving away FOUR copies of Threads of Yoga: A Remix of Patanjali’s Sutras, With Commentary and Reverie by Matthew Remski, courtesy of Mr. Remski.
TO ENTER: We know, this back to school thing is giving us the heebs, too, but bear with us! A lot of you responded when we asked a little while ago about your fall plans – going to yoga school or going to school school. Don’t worry, we’re not going to give you homework, just a wee little assignment to get the old noggin working. To enter, tell us in the comments your current favorite (or least favorite) sutra and why. OR, share a sutra that still doesn’t quite make sense to you. Maybe we can all help
Giveaway will be open until 11:59 pm Tuesday, September 10. Four winners will be chosen at random and announced soon after. Good luck!
UPDATE: Congrats to Mary, Jena, Sean Feit and Angelique! Thanks to all for sharing!
