The Raja Yoga Sutras by sage Patanjali are the central scripture of yoga, a psychological study, a practical guide and an authentic source of wisdom.The central topic is the exporation and control of one’s own thoughts.
The main practice consists in silent meditation, during which the physical and mental energies are gradually transformed into spiritual energy.

The countless insights from the sutras can add depth to your yoga classes and become a life guide for participants.


The training includes lectures with practical exercises:

  • Calming down the thought waves
  • Observing various thought waves
  • Concentration and meditation as steps towards realisation
  • Obstacles and how to overcome them
  • Dealing with subtle thoughts
  • The law of cause and effect
