Yoga Sutra and Vedic Chanting Classes

Patanjali's Yoga Sutra

The Yoga Sutra is one of the definitive works on the instruction, practice and philosophy of yoga. Written by the mysterious Patanjali the text is somewhere between 2500 years and 5000 years old. This great spiritual text is a guild book, leading us to embody the purity of our dharma. With the understanding that our one overall dharma is to come back to ourselves as spiritual beings.

Patanjali was a sage and scholar. His aspiration was to distill ancient teachings, making them relevant to the people of his time. In ancient times, teachings were passed from teacher to student through oral transition. Sutras, or small aphorisms were given to the student to cement a memory of the full teaching. Sutra means string of thread, somehow complete with in themselves, yet leading subtly one to the next like a string of pearls. Much of the wisdom presented in the text was compiled from other more ancient wisdoms The texts lays out a direction, a path to liberation.
