Sutra Discussion Group

Join Philippe Alexis for a monthly Yoga Sutra exploration discussion. This will take place on Zoom on the once a month, from 9:00 to 10:00am ET. Here’s the Zoom link:


  • Do I need to have any prior knowledge of the Sutras?
    No worries! You don’t need any prior knowledge. Simply come as you are, and we’ll explore the Yoga Sutras together.

  • Which translation do you use?
    We primarily refer to Dr. Ranganathan’s translation.

  • Why this translation?
    We use Dr. Ranganathan’s translation since it focuses more on the philosophical and conceptual understanding of the Yoga Sutras, rather than solely concentrating on linguistic or historical aspects.

  • What topics will be discussed?
    We’ll dive into questions like, “What is yoga?” “What’s the essence of yoga practice?” “How does yoga relate to our modern lives?” “Is it a religion?”  We aim to have a valuable conversation that will help clarify the profound project of yoga and provide insights on how to direct our efforts in this meaningful endeavor. We can’t wait to have you with us!
