The Yoga Sutras - The Original Roadmap to Happiness.

April 22, 29 and May 13, 20

The Yoga Sutras in Action: How to Live Now. A Spiritual Practice for Everyday Life.

This is a different kind of workshop on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

We go way beyond the traditional study of the Eight Limbs and into the special teachings woven through the text on how to alleviate suffering, tap into the loving nature of your heart, find connection, happiness and gain true insights to the divine nature of your soul.


This powerful and unique course is for you if: 

  • You want to learn how the Yoga Sutras are relevant in your life and their practical application
  • You want to find freedom, happiness, and fulfillment
  • You want to advance your practice of yoga as a transformation
  • You are interested in unlocking the power of some of the lesser-known sutras
  •  You want to boost your resume with CEU credits

“Studying the Yoga Sutras with René was incredibly enlightening. In addition to a review of the text, we had discussions and then we embodied the concepts through wonderful yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation, led by René and her team. As a result of the course, I developed an understanding of these important concepts of self-knowledge and awareness. Continuing with the chosen practice for the 30 days following the course, allowed me to develop deep self-awareness and certainly created a positive change for me. I highly recommend studying the Yoga Sutras with René. It will change your life!! ”
