Nayaswami Hriman McGilloway presents this in-depth course on the famous Yoga Sutras for those wishing to deepen their experience and understanding of meditation and states of higher awareness. For those practicing or teaching hatha yoga (postures), the Sutras offer guidelines of attitude, consciousness and techniques through which to understand the higher purpose of asana practice.
If you have graduated from the 200 hour Ananda Yoga Teacher training, then AYTT-2 builds on that experience through advanced asanas and a deeper examination of Yoga Sutras. This course is one of 7 course offerings to work towards your RYT 500 certification.
