The Online Art of Sūtra Psychology – 121 eStudy Module One
– Clear your Flow Exploring Awareness within Mind and Emotions

This particular eStudy Module One consists of nine 121 live video meetings to facilitate a personalised approach and in-depth transmission between teacher and student.

It introduces the student, through an online teaching dialogue, to the primary principles and essential teachings from T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar on the Yoga Sūtra.

“Patañjali
 was 
very 
prophetic, because 
he spoke
 not 
only
 of 
yesterday’s 
mind,
but 
also
 of
 tomorrow’s. His 
message 
concerns 
clarity,
and it 
will 
become 
more 
and 
more 
pertinent
 as
 time 
goes 
by,
because 
people 
are 
now
 questioning 
much 
more 
than
 before.”
– TKV Desikachar

The Online Art of Sūtra Psychology Module One Framework

The online Sūtra Psychology Module One reflects the teachings of TKV Desikachar and his father and teacher T Krishnamacharya as taught to Paul Harvey over 25 years through:

  • Guidance in emphasising a personal reflective study to support your life.
  • Understanding the principles that inspire and shape Yoga psychology.
  • An overview of primary Yoga Sūtra concepts around body and mind.
  • Familiarisation with basic Yoga Sūtra terms and practice techniques.
  • Appreciating how chanting the Yoga Sūtra can aid their absorption and deepen our understanding.
  • Deepening the reflective aspects of our personal practice with the Yoga Sūtra.

To present a view of the Yoga Sūtra through which students can support and develop their own practice and deepen their appreciation of the possibilities for the Yoga Sūtra in their lives.

“The problem is in the mind and the key is in the mind.”
– TKV Desikachar

It offers an in-depth approach to the Yoga Sūtra, through an experiential appreciation of the core teachings that underpin the Art of Sūtra Psychology, either for personal development or, if relevant, to enhance professional skills. It is also a prerequisite to further work in the Art of Sūtra Psychology – Course Modules Two to Five.

The Online Art of Sūtra Psychology Module One Professional

Even though the Yoga Sūtra teachings and techniques developed in the Art of Sūtra Psychology Modular Courses can enhance any Yoga Teachers professional skills in the fields of Yoga Psychology and Yoga Therapeutic Healthcare, there is no requirement to teach or to intend to teach Yoga. This is not the role of the course.

In fact not everybody wants to or actually needs to become a Yoga teacher to further their practice and study. Here the priorities are towards personal development and thus questions relating to our personal practice and study are the priorities. These Courses reflect this viewpoint.

“Abhyāsa, when performed with reverence, without interruption, over a long period of time, will result in a healthy body, acute senses and extraordinary alertness.”
– T Krishnamacharya

The aim is that we are all here in this course as students and it offers an opportunity for all teachers to step back from their teaching role and re-enhance their personal study and practice path.

  • Exploring some key concepts that underpin this Teaching on Yoga.
  • How the four chapters are linked.
  • What are the key words in each.
  • Which chapters are most important.
  • Why we need a view such as Patāñjali.
  • Learning to look from the Yoga Sūtra at our relationship with others.
  • Linking the Sūtra to the ebb and flow of daily life.
  • Introduction to the value of reciting the Yoga Sūtra.
