Patanjali´s Yoga Sutra or Aphorisms of Yoga are considered the fundamental texts of Yoga and are thought to have been written between the 2nd century BC and the 6th century AD.

This is how I began to find a new coherence, an interesting vision, which was refined as I went along and wrote. Then I decided that I was going to share my learning with other people and that is where this book
