The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are 196 sutras (aphorisms). Compiled prior to 400 CE by Sage Patanjali, they take materials about yoga from older traditions. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali was the most translated ancient Indian text in the medieval era, having been translated into about forty Indian languages and two non-Indian languages. The text fell into obscurity for nearly 700 years from the 12th to 19th century, and made a comeback in late 19th century due to mainly the efforts of Swami Vivekananda. It gained prominence again as a comeback classic in the 20th century.
It is considered one of the foundations of classical Yoga philosophy. It is considered necessary to understand the basics of Yoga.
This course is offered as a module in the Core Curriculum of our 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training program. After taking up this course, one can proceed on to Patnjali's Yoga Sutras II for a still deeper treatment and understanding of the aphorisms.
The time spent on this course is fully creditable towards RYT 500 program.
