Pattabhi Jois often said, “Ashtanga Yoga is Patanjali Yoga.” His teacher, T. Krshnamacharya, considered the Yoga Sutras to be the single most important yogic text, and the most instrumental in the development of his teaching methodology. In this workshop Tim will provide an introduction to Chapter 1 of the Yoga Sutras—Samadhi Pada—and explore the connection between the philosophy of Patanjali and the methodology of Ashtanga Yoga.
