Yoga Philosophy Class by Zoom

I have invited Ganga to lead a class in the study of the Indian philosophy, in particular the Bhagavad Gita. It is a important and popular religious and philosophical text in India.

Ganga did her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Sanskrit at the Delhi University  in India. The Upanishads, her favourite topic of study,  is the source of Indian philosophy. 

Ganga has lived, trained and worked in New Zealand most of her life. As a result she combines her learnings from Indian philosophy with the unique appreciation she has for people of various cultures and nationalities.  She believes Bhagavad Gita, the story and the teachings, will appeal to anyone whether or not they are  serious students of philosophy. 

The class can be taken in your home on Zoom, Sunday evening starting March 14th at 7.30pm.  This is a free course, everyone is welcome.
