Yoga Sutras of Patanjali


Coming out of an oral tradition thousands of years old, the aphorisms of the Yoga Sutra are meant to be received, memorized and understood in the context of on-going instruction by a teacher and continuous effort by the student. Through this traditional learning process, the meaning of these ancient words of wisdom and their relevance to our modern lives is revealed.

Linda's yoga sutra classes include chanting, presentation and discussion and are appropriate for inquiring students of all levels.

Chanting at the beginning and closing of asana classes honors the lineage of the vast and ancient tradition, and allows for transitions to and from daily life. Linda’s teaching brings light to the proper pronunciation, phrasing and meaning of these beautiful chants.
