Find more joy in daily life and learn to become empowered from the inside out!
The Yoga Sutras invite us to expand our yoga journey beyond the poses. It offers us a practical guide for experiencing more meaning, joy and confidence in daily life - for our modern times.
This is a LIVE Interactive Online Study Group for Yoga Teachers, Yoga Students, Seekers or Anyone on a spiriutal path interested in positive change, continued growth and sustained happiness.
The Yoga Sutra of Patañjali...
Is one of the central and foundational texts of Yoga -- focused on reducing human suffering and creating more sustained joy in daily life.
And although they were composed at least 2500 years ago, they are as relevant today as when they were written.
They provide a practical roadmap for living skillfully and happily and offer tools that really work for modern times.
These teachings have personally guided me over the the last several years. I've relied on them for both personal growth, overcoming challenges, reaching goals, building confidence, improving my relationships and navigating through life's constant change. But most specifically healing the daily anxiety I experienced since childhood.
Sharing these profound but practical Sutras with others has become the foundation of my role as a yoga teacher -- and life coach. They give my life and work profound meaning and have offered me a real structure to positively change my life, and help others.
While the physical aspect of yoga is extremely important, when put in its larger context, it is also meant to be an integrative tool for purifying the mind and creating more joy, rather than just an isolated form of exercise.
Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra manages to find a way to call attention to our negative mental patterns that is at the heart of our suffering and dis-ease -- and to help us change what we can change and detach from what is no longer serving us. He does this within the context of our shared human experience.
An understanding of this text is essential for both yoga teachers, yoga students - and spiriutal seekers

We'll study each sutra, focusing on key sutras word for word. Our focus will be on learning and understanding the larger context and the teaching within the sutras -- but most importantly on the practical application of them in our daily lives - and especially in areas that we want to see change and progress.
