The Complete Yogi | Yoga-Sūtras
What is it about?
A “complete yogi” is one who has already explored the multiple dimensions of yoga practice, whose mind is sharp and ready to engage in the process of Self-discovery. This person still has work to do, but the ultimate goal of yoga is in sight at last.
As we study this text, we continue to marvel at the way these profound ancient teachings connect with practical everyday life, giving us a platform of reflection and revealing the unlimited potential of yoga as a mean of self-transformation.
We cover the end of chapter 3 (sūtras 39 to 55), and all of chapter 4 (34 sūtras). The text is explained word by word, sūtra by sūtra with commentaries, as taught in the tradition of T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar. This course is the continuation of the 2020-2021 seminar series on chapter I and III, but it is not a pre-requisite to take it.
Valerie Fimat-Faneco has been studying and teaching the Yoga-Sūtra for many years. In 2012 she translated a commentary of the Yoga-Sūtra based on Mr Desikachar’s and Professor Krishnamacharya’s teachings, written in French by her mentor Frans Moors. Valerie has also been practicing and teaching Vedic chanting for many years. She has been offering tuition on the Yoga-Sūtra and other topics of Yoga philosophy live and by video-conference since 2013.
