Episode 132: The Art of the Yoga Sutras

This week’s guest, Melissa Townsend is the author of two beautiful books about the Yoga Sutras. Townsend, a long-time yoga student, artist, Sanskrit enthusiast, and psychic, wasn’t always enthusiastic about the sutras. But in the same way that psychic visions come to her, so did the idea to use her art to share the Yoga Sutras. On this episode, I had the opportunity to ask her all about the creative process of her Yoga Sutras art and translations. We’re also joined by Stephanie Snyder, a popular yoga teacher who loves to study and share the sutras.

We have an in-depth conversation about why we all find this work fascinating, talk about their approach to studying the sutras, and explain why the text is so much more than just the meaning of words or interpretations that you read. You might have to listen to the episode to understand, but I promise you’ll be glad you did. It might just change the way you’ve been approaching the study of yoga philosophy.

ALSO: Melissa and Stephanie are doing a free event at Lovestory Yoga on December 14th, 2018. Come by for refreshments, a Yoga Sutras discussion, Melissa’s art, and copies of her books available for purchase. Learn more and register here!

Episode 122: Applying Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra to Your Daily Life

Living the Sutras | Yogaland Podcast | Yoga Podcast

There are so many interpretations of the seminal yoga text, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra. This week, I talk to two women who’ve written one that is refreshingly different. Kelly DiNardo and Amy Pearce-Hayden join me to talk about their book new book, Living the Sutras: A Guide to Yoga Wisdom Beyond the Mat. Their book is not a formal, scholarly translation of the Yoga Sutra. Instead, DiNardo and Pearce-Hayden have created a guide that can help you take the sutras, reflect on them, and then apply them to your life. Their approach is lively, relevant, modern and also informed by years of practice and study.
