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.
