Nāthamuni’s Yoga Rahasya

The Secrets of Yoga


The Yoga Rahasya, which literally means the “Secrets of Yoga,” is an important text on the use and application of Yoga. It played a central role in the teaching of the great modern-day Yogi, Śrī T. Krishnamacharya, who mysteriously revived the text after it was lost for centuries.

The textʼs organization and background can make it difficult to understand without a clear framework in which to approach it. In this class, we will develop a foundation to make Nāthamuni’s Yoga Rahasya accessible to students of all levels.


There are no prerequisites for this class. General knowledge of the practice of Yoga and a desire to study ancient text with an experienced teacher is preferred.
