The Path of the Yoga Sutras: A Practical Guide to the Core of Yoga

One of the great gifts of the yogic path is that it returns us to a life of simplicity, even as we go about our lives in a world of growing complexity. Through practice, we ultimately find the freedom to be who we really are, and allow others do the same.

This was Patañjali’s original intention when he penned his legendary sutras. But when a text is over 2,000 years old, important things can get lost in translation. For today’s yoga student looking to take their practice “off the mat and into the world,” Nicolai Bachman presents The Path of the Yoga Sutras.

By organizing the sutras into 51 core concepts that support the Western student in germinating and blossoming these potent “seed” teachings, Bachman has created a breakthrough tool for integrating yoga philosophy and practice, whatever your level of experience.

Another view Although I’ve been studying the Yoga Sutras for the past 5 years from virtually the same format, Mr. Bachman’s book gave me a fresh look. It is another path up the same mountain reaching the same summit…just with a different view. I really appreciated the sanskrit words with their meaning repeated over and over so that I could get better insight into their deeper and more subtle meanings in contexts I can and do use every day. What a gift! I was so impressed I purchased his whole program of…

One of the best books I’ve ever read on the yoga sutras I teach yoga and consult this book often to prepare my lessons for class. It is a well-written, concise account of the yoga sutras. I use it not only for my class lessons, but for my own personal growth. I love this book and have already purchased an additional copy for a friend. Whether you teach yoga or just want a book on self-improvement, I highly recommend this one. The chapters are short, to the point, and very usable for every day life. There are quotes at the beginning of each…
