The Yoga Sutra was written in India about 2,000 years ago, and is considered the source of almost all the great teachings on yoga. It is organized around the ashtanga, or “eight branches of yoga,” which include not just the physical exercises but also things like meditation, mental calmness, and proper breathing.
If we get the chance to learn the Yoga Sutra in an authentic presentation, it not only transforms our yoga practice completely, but it also gives us tools that we can use to succeed in every part of our life. The same teachings that help us become a complete master of physical yoga also unlock the secrets of our inner body—the channels and chakras. And this allows us to go on change the entire world around us, to help both ourselves and everyone else in our lives.
