TT8: The Source Texts of Yoga

In today's episode I start with the question of "what are the most essential, source texts of yoga?" - There have been so many books written, but where do they originate? Are most modern books on yoga derivative of these texts? What do they teach that has stood the test of time? I will share all about that in today's episode of the Yoga Teacher Training podcast. 


Here are links to the texts I mentioned in this episode:

The Upanishads:

Bhagavad Gita:

Yoga Sutra

Hatha Yoga Pradipika
