The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: Timeless Wisdom for Everyday Living


with Joshua Michaell


November 11, 2017  •  1-5 PM 


The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is the quintessential yogic text. Comprised of 196 potent truths, the Yoga Sutras illuminate the most subtle and refined workings of the mind and chart a direct course from suffering into freedom through the knowing of one’s essential nature.

Utilizing three primary distinctions of Sanskrit sound and the powers of chanting, we will explore an empowering selection of Yoga Sutras that will add greater levels of understanding and dimension to your yoga practice, both on and off the mat.


Class will be fun and interactive. No experience with Sanskrit or the Yoga Sutras is necessary.

Location: Yoga Mountain Studio

Using yoga itself at the heart of the method, in every aspect, from the simple act of listening, to how to articulate the sounds of this profoundly spiritual language, studying with Joshua make learning fun and effective. I recommend courses with Joshua to anyone interested in a deeper perspective of yoga, its philosophy, and its language.

Having worked with many of today’s spiritual luminaries – from Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson to Jean Houston and Ram Dass – it’s clear to me that Joshua Michaell is a very bright light amongst the next generation of transformational teachers. His skillfulness as a presenter of profound spiritual teachings is beautifully augmented by his ability to create a workshop environment of exceptional safety, openness, and fun. Joshua provide a quality of content and experience that I wholeheartedly recommend.
