The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, translation and commentary by BKS Iyengar.  This ancient text was the source of Mr. Iyengar’s yoga philosophy and his guiding light.  When asked, he would say that his type of yoga was “Patanjali Yoga”.  For the last two-thousand years, it has been studied and written about by yoga practitioners and scholars.  There is wisdom in this text that is very relevant to everyday modern life, as well as the practice of yoga.  Several key sutras will be selected from the 196 sutras (or aphorisms) for study and discussions.
