The second class went well, from my perspective. We talked some philosophy. I think in the future I will have us sit in a circle to facilitate discussion. We discussed the first four sutras. A couple students read all four padas, quite an introduction. I don't think I've ever read them all myself in one sitting.
Here's the handout I used for our discussion.
1.1 Now yoga begins.
1.2 Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind.
1.3 When yoga happens, the seer resides in its true abode/ sees its true nature.
1.4 At other times, the seer identifies with the fluctuations of the mind.
Kelsey asked some good questions about are all fluctuations bad. No only those that interfere with the aim of yoga. She also asked what to do to get more flexible. Do what you remember from class
