The Path of the Yoga Sutras
A Practical Guide to the Core of Yoga

Easy-to-understand Yoga Sutras philosophy and core concepts applied to everyday life.
Starting at:





One of the great gifts of the yogic path is that it returns us to a life of simplicity, even as we go about our lives in a world of growing complexity. Through practice, we ultimately find the freedom to be who we really are, and allow others do the same.

This was Patañjali's original intention when he penned his legendary sutras. But when a text is over 2,000 years old, important things can get lost in translation. For today's yoga student looking to take their practice “off the mat and into the world,” Nicolai Bachman presents The Path of the Yoga Sutras.

By organizing the sutras into 51 core concepts that support the Western student in germinating and blossoming these potent “seed” teachings, Bachman has created a breakthrough tool for integrating yoga philosophy and practice, whatever your level of experience.

The Path of the Yoga Sutras by Nicolas Bachman Review by Pam


I am about halfway through this book, but can already tell it will be one I go back to again and again! I think the way he set up the chapters is very helpful - making it easy to return to a topic of specific interest. It is obvious he knows a lot about this topic!

Review for The Path of the Yoga Sutras Review by Susie


I bought this book because it was recommended by Tias Little - yoga teacher, but I was so disappointed with it. I felt it took all the essence, the true spirituality of Patanjali, the yoga, the union with the infinite that is behind it, away - replacing it self help tips eg, avoid stress by making sure that you leave plenty of time to arrive at meeting. Good advice but not in a book on the sutras of Patanjali (Posted on February 4, 2012)

Review for The Path of the Yoga Sutras Review by Dana Wittmann


This is a clear and precise breakdown of the Sanskrit words that define the yoga mind. The introduction is pretty good too (Posted on September 10, 2011)
