Embrace it; be it; live from it.”

To help us live from divine wisdom within, the study of our true Self and sacred scripture is one of the foundational practices in Kriya Yoga. In this tradition, we do not study sacred scripture to find answers within the pages of the text. Instead, we study scripture to reveal the divine wisdom that already indwells each of us, and that is waiting to be heard by us now. 
Instructor: Paula Whang-Ramos

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras is a concise compilation of the most ancient teachings on Yoga and meditation in the history of the world. Each Sutra/verse can serve as an inner invitation to open our hearts and inspire spiritually conscious living on a very practical level – in this lifetime. Join us online as we study, contemplate these wisdom teachings, and thrive in our innate peace, love, and joy beyond the limitations of the mind.
