The Essence of the Yoga Sutras is from a week long class series given by Jyotish and Devi Novak at The Expanding Light, Ananda's yoga and meditation retreat center near Nevada City, California. The Novak’s bring this esoteric and profound ancient text into a language we can readily understand. They discuss in depth the dream nature of the universe, the eight-fold path of Raja Yoga, and how we can apply the steps prescribed in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras in our daily lives.

Topics Included:

  • How We Perceive and Misperceive the World
  • Realization and Samadhi – The Goal of Life
  • The Obstacles of Yoga and How to Overcome Them
  • Ashtanga Yoga – How to Get There
  • Deeper Into the Yamas and Niyamas
  • How to Integrate the Yoga Sutras Into Our Daily Lives

Recorded: Summer 2004
