Exploring the Yoga Sutras

Yoga sutra

Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtras is one of the best known, yet least understood texts on Yoga. Yoga Sūtras are accepted as the authoritative text on Yoga doctrine and practice and in this course you can comprehensively – chapter by chapter, sūtra by sūtra – understand what Patañjali intended and what it means to modern spiritual practice.

We follow a structure that exactly reflects that designed by Patañjali as the best means of conveying his ideas. We use Dr Sutton’s full modern translation and for assistance and guidance we refer to the traditional commentators.
