May 11, 2017: Yoga Sutra Studies Course with Michael de Manincor


The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali form the foundation of all yoga teachings. Presented in a simple yet compact style, the sutras offer the entire foundation of Yoga’s philosophy, psychology, concepts and tools for practice and personal transformation. A thorough study of this text is essential for every Yoga teacher and keen Yoga student.

This course is designed for yoga teachers and experienced yoga students. It provides a deeper exploration of:

  • The conceptual framework and major themes of these ancient teachings
  • Relevance of these teachings for the practice of Yoga today, for health and well-being in our modern lives
  • Classical chanting of the Yoga Sutras

Michael de Manincor studied the Yoga Sutras over many years under the guidance of Krishnamacharya’s son TKV Desikachar.

In this course, Michael shares his in-depth understanding of the importance and correct technique of classical chanting and the meaning of each chapter and how it relates to yoga practice, the mind, and life in general.

His level of knowledge and understanding of the sutras, along with his warm and engaging teaching style, give students a wonderful and unique learning experience.


“Michael is a great person to walk alongside as you explore the sutras. I highly recommend studying with him!”
Jennifer Taylor


“I’ve grown so much inside, the Yoga Sutras is basically ‘The Secret of Life,’ thank you guys.”
