Lucy Crisfield has been living with the question “What is Yoga, really?!" burning in her heart for the last 15 years. She has been surprised by the intensity with which it has gripped her, and has shaped her life during this time. This question has propelled her toward studying Sanskrit for the past 13 years, and has taken her to the feet of Masters of the language: Satyanānda Shastri, Dr Stephen Thompson and Peter Harrison, who have all broken her down again and again as she tried to analyse the teachings of this tradition and fit them into a box. Patiently they have tired her questioning mind so that she could feel the vast capacities held within the Sanskrit language.
Lucy shares what she has learnt in this personal journey into the Sanskrit language in a direct, focused, and joyful manner. She uses sound, meditation and discussion to bring this tradition alive within the participants of her satsang.
