This online, interactive course is designed to give you an inspiring and in-depth understanding of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda.
Great course! Well explained, and easy to follow. Perfect timing.
This course opened something in me. Suddenly, I began to understand the Yoga Sutras. Nayaswamis Gyandev and Diksha and Brahmachi Sagar led me step by step and made grasping the concepts easier. I feel myself taking these lessons into life. I highly recommend this course.
Great course, it is bound to benefit anyone who is serious about this path. Yoga Sutra of Patanjali lays the foundation of Raj-Yoga, the path taken by us, yet not easy to understand. The structure of this course make it not only easy to understand intellectually, but provides guidelines for practicing those principles in daily life. The slide presentations, interactive sessions and Quizzes make the subject matter easy to understand and practice. Excellent and very caring teachers.
Taking this course has helped integrate the Yoga teachings into both my intellectual understanding and what I can best describe as embodiment of truths at a deeper level. It’s truly a real-ization or making real the content that’s been passed on. Deepest gratitude to Gyandev, Diksha, and Sagar for being clear beautiful channels.
The material of this course was exceptionally profound, as were the webinar teachings from the three skilled instructors. Every aspect of the teachings, including the quizzes, helped to peer into and absorb the glorious insights offered in “Demystifying Patanjali”. A great deal more may be said about this course experience and the “mini-awakenings” in understanding I received. That being said, and keeping with simplicity, the pivotal heart of the teachings that has singularly penetrated my heart’s felt experience is twofold:
1) In 4-26, page 174 ~ the commentary reads, ” Swami Yukteswar …. stated that until the heart’s natural love has been developed, one cannot set even one foot before the other in one’s search for God.”
2) 4-30, page 176 Patanjali offers this beautifully pithy sutra ~ “In complete absence of self-interest, all afflictions and past karmas cease.”
Deep, rich blessings to all who have taken “Keys to Yoga Sutras”, and to all who will in the future. Gratitude to each one and for the spiritual path of Master’s Ray we all share.
Keys to the Yoga Sutras was my first introduction to Ananda. I found the self paced class a nice fit for my lifestyle and not knowing what to expect, the class exceeded all of my expectations. I have always felt meditation difficult, but now, I have found it’s purpose. I know that my life has changed and my practice has begun. So much of the teachings resinated within me, and many of the teachings felt so familiar and true. During this course, I purchased the Autobiography of a Yogi and Affirmations for Self-Healing. I have found both to be nice companions to this course and for everyday use. I am so grateful to have followed my path to Ananda and for the teachers who have dedicated their time. Blessings to you, Charlene
Keys to the Yoga Sutras course was life changing and transformative. Studying the work of Patanjali has been a guide for deeper understanding of Raja Yoga as well as my inner Self. THANK YOU Gyandev, Diksha and Sagar for helping to create such an dynamic course of inner expansive understanding.
Invaluable! This course offers so much. I have to say a huge thank-you for deepening my understanding of the Yamas and Niyamas….and also, for deepening my understanding of the three gunas. This practical knowledge, from those principals alone, can be taken into everyday life for more happiness and deeper meditations. And so much more was learned from the course, too! Excellent teachers!
