Patanjali was an ancient yoga teacher who lived in India around 2500 years ago.
This program is designed to give a taster and overview of some of the essential teachings contained in the four books (or chapters) of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali; the seminal text on the philosophy and practice of Yoga.
A sutra is a short phrase or teaching. Patanjali did not write the sutras down, they were chanted repeatedly so the students could memorize them.
This program is taught in a traditional approach by chanting the sutras in call and response before an interpretation and translation of the sutra is offered.
