Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, probably composed around 2,000 years ago, are universally recognised as the classic teaching and ultimate authority on yoga. Amazingly, they are still completely relevant to our life and times. They were designed to be learnt by heart and consist of 195 short aphorisms, a bit like newspaper headings. They therefore have to be explained and discussed with a teacher who has learnt them with a teacher who has…etc. etc., just as you need to read what comes below the heading in a newspaper. You can come to them all, or to just one, as, although we shall always place the sutra we are studying in its context, each one can be a focus for reflection and meditation by itself.
In spite of the fact that these sessions have been going since 2016, they are suitable for people who are complete beginners to the Sutra, and for those who have studied them for years. All can have interesting insights to share. I usually manage to record them, so, if you can’t attend, you can still listen later.
I am also doing another series on Zoom. For more information, please see the page on the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali.
