Yoga Sutras Training

Patanjali Yoga sutras are one of the most profound expositions on yoga. Yoga coming from the root ‘yuj” (to yoke or unite) is a term used in the spiritual sense to unite with the Ultimate Conscious principle. Sutras (literally meaning thread) are short, cryptic aphorisms that tie a theme together.

Yoga Sutras tie together the goal of yoga; what it means to reach the Ultimate, the means; practices to follow, obstacles to be overcome, as well as powers; benefits that can be achieved on the journey if done right – all woven thru beautiful metaphors yet in a precise, logical expression.

They are therefore not a mere philosophy – but a compilation of revelations of great masters in their heights of meditation as well as time tested practices, research; experiences gained in their journey to Ultimate bliss.

For all of us today, even a glimpse into this profound, timeless yet practical wisdom serves as guiding light to steer ourselves out of our own weaknesses that limit us from our true expression, worth & being. It is an absolute joy to explore this text not only for yoga teachers but also for other seekers looking for a deeper, holistic connection & meaning to yoga.

The aim of this course is to give an insight into the sutras, provide a better understanding of the key concepts and gaining clarity on making it more relatable in everyday life.

This training counts for 1 required module in the RYS300 Program and for 15 Continuing Education Hours with Yoga Alliance. Certification is given at completion of the course.
