About the Book
It doesn’t take long for those new to yoga to experience how impactful this practice can be in every area of their lives. To help readers explore and embody the full potential of yoga, Sanskrit expert and teacher Nicolai Bachman offers The Path of the Yoga Sutras (September 2011, Sounds True), an indispensible guide for applying the wisdom of Patañjali’s Yoga Sutras to modern lives.
Suitable for practitioners of any level and with valuable insights for any spiritual seeker, this book covers a variety of transformative topics that are the foundation of yogic philosophy including how to open our heart and mind, become more compassionate, live with integrity, and more
Rather than studying the Yoga Sutras line by line, Bachman selects 51 powerful concepts to help us more easily understand the core principles and potential of yoga. Drawing on his years of experience practicing and teaching yoga, Bachman shares clear and insightful commentary to expand your perspective on each concept. With reflective questions and suggested “karma actions” to be taken, he then offers practical ways to help refine our behaviors and beliefs in each and every area in our life.
“The Yoga Sutras offer us gems of wisdom and tools for living in a more conscious and harmonious way,” teaches Bachman.
The Path of the Yoga Sutras is an inspiring and practical guide for exploring yoga’s life-enriching treasures.
