Sharing the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali requires specialized training and a deep knowledge and understanding of this specific scripture, which forms the philosophy and practice of Yoga. We invite the public to join our Raja Yoga Teacher Training participants and trainers for a special Satsang presentation, where a broad discussion of these Sutras will be offered. All are welcome.
