The Essence of the Yoga Sutras According to Paramhansa Yogananda Apply the Wisdom of Patanjali for Spiritual Success

About us

Patanjali, (the author of the Yoga Sutras) was an enlightened master, writing from a state of realization as well as practical knowledge. Far more than mere philosophical speculation, the Sutras come from revealed knowledge and serve as a road map for those who would explore the realm of Self-realization. — from How to Meditate, by Jyotish Novak

During this course, you will explore these important subjects:

  • Ashtanga Yoga – How to use the Eightfold Path to enhance your spiritual practices.
  • Obstacles to Yoga – What holds you back spiritually, and how to overcome it.
  • Samadhi – What is this state of Oneness, and how can you move toward an actual experience of it.
  • Attitude – How to develop the attitudes essential for success in your spiritual life.
  • Making Patanjali practical – How to integrate the essence of yoga into your daily life.

This course is open to all and is also part of Ananda's Yoga Therapy Training. In this Course Syllabus, certain parts apply only to those seeking certification as an Ananda Yoga Therapist..
