The First 4 Sutras of Patanjali
Wednesday, March 3
6:30am - 8:30am PST / 9:30am - 11:30am EST / 8:00 - 10:00pm IST
The first four verses of the yoga sutras are said to contain the quintessence of Rajayoga. Join Srivatsa Ramaswami for an in-depth discussion of these ‘seed sutras’ and a visit to the epic Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
As Krishnamacharya’s longest standing student outside his immediate family, Srivatsa Ramaswami has mastered Vinyasa Krama, Vedic chanting, and Yoga therapy. He has studied the classic Yoga texts extensively, has recorded more than 35 cassettes of Sanskrit mantra, and has written four books: Yoga for the Three Stages of Life, Basic Tenets of Patanjala Yoga, The Complete Book of Vinyasa Yoga, and Yoga Beneath the Surface.
For over 30 years, Ramaswami has taught Krishnamacharya’s classical vinyasa yoga in universities, hospitals and yoga studios throughout England, Mexico, the United States and India. He has taught workshops and Teacher Training programs in the US at the Esalen Institute, Loyola Marymount University, Yoga Works, the Himalayan Institute, Chicago Yoga Center and many others. Ramaswami has developed Krishnamacharya’s teachings into what may be the most highly evolved program available for making yoga a way of life, rather than simply a routine.
