Tantra and the Yoga Sutras

Jeanne Heileman
  • 09. – 11.06.23


This training will be taught in English.

This three-day course on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, will be taught by Jeanne Heileman with a lot of passion, humor and depth to yoga philosophy. She will take students through some of the challenging sections that teachers will naturally gloss over because it’s too complicated for the first-time or even second-time reader.

Each day will start out with a strong practice including asana, pranayama and meditation that weaves in a theme for the day. The afternoons will end with a shorter practice leading to a meditation that weaves in the messages we explored that day.

You will leave with a greater understanding of the Yoga Sutras as a whole because the scary, confusing parts will no longer be a mystery.

The Yoga Sutras from Patanjali are some of the oldest scriptures on yoga, written as aphorisms, (short sayings or proverbs,) which have layers and layers of meaning within the lines. The Sankhya Philosophy, a dualistic perspective, was very popular at the time so many see the Sutras as a dualistic text. However, there is a strong presence of Tantra, a non-dualistic perspective, woven throughout the scripture. This course takes students through the first three chapters to clarify any misunderstandings and then to see the Tantric messages woven within the lines.

The great concept of Samadhi will be illumed, clarity will be brought to complicated verses, and Tantric practices will be taught that support the text’s messages. Each day will open with an hour and half of asana, pranayama and meditation that supports the day’s themes. You will learn how the messages of the Sutras apply to our practice and to our life off the mat. There will be group discussion, stories, and inner discovery; all mixed with lots of humor. Afternoon sessions will close with Pranayama and Meditation practices influenced by the lessons learned. You will leave with a newfound appreciation for this scripture as a resource for living life meaningfully.

We will be using The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali translated by Sri Swami Satchidananda as a group. Students are welcome to bring additional translations for comparison.
