Yogasūtras in Action

The User’s Manual for Being Human

Patañjali’s Yogasūtras, the essential Yoga text, is a blueprint for living a meaningful and fulfilling life. 

Yogasūtras in Action explores the applications of the Yogasūtras and how they relate to your everyday life.

Over 8 Modules (each Module is 50-75 minutes), we’ll explore the richness of Yoga that extends beyond the poses and breathing exercises in practice; what it means to be in a state of Yoga off the mat; and what a state of Yoga even means to begin with!

Come to understand the context of Yoga as it has been passed down from teacher to student for thousands of years.

You won’t just study Yoga – you will live it.


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.

What You Will Learn

This is an in-depth introduction to the Yogasūtras. Come to understand the general flow of ideas, as well as the content for each chapter. Sanskrit is a highly contextual language; to get the most out of the Yogasūtras, it is crucial to study with an expert. 

By studying the Yogasūtras, you will:

  • Discover what Yoga is: a way of being
  • Learn what balance is, why it’s important, what it looks like, and how to achieve it
  • Understand how the practice of Yoga relates to living your life
  • Learn how to practice Yoga  “off the mat”
  • Come to know what “Yoga in Action” is for you personally

Yoga is an experiential process – it is meant to be experienced and embodied with regular practice. Change works best if it is gradual and incremental.

We encourage our students to rewatch previous lessons, reflect on the concepts taught, and ask questions or begin discussions in our private online community for peer and teacher support.

Stop doing Yoga and start living it.
