Everyone in this world is searching for happiness. We also wonder if there is a guide book to achieve the same. Fortunately, there is a text to achieve this objective. It is Sage Patanjali’s 195 Yoga sutras. I was fortunate to learn this text for the last 12 years under the able guidance of various Yoga Gurus.

Hello everyone,

I am Mrs Praveena Shetty and my first brush with Yoga was when I was at my Republic Day Parade camp in 1991. Yoga Nidra was introduced at that camp and I loved it. The seeds of Yoga were put but it took years to manifest. I went ahead with my Bachelors in Commerce and Masters as well. I joined a college in Mumbai as a lecturer and taught Marketing Management and Human Resource and Development to senior college students. The daily grind was taxing and I got all symptoms of chronic Migraine which became very painful in the course of few months. So, I enrolled for a course at a nearby Yoga institute and did Asana, Pranayama and Kriya which helped me immensely. To learn the subject thoroughly  I joined a Yoga course to do my Bachelors in Yoga. For the first three months I didn’t understand why we were taught Yoga Philosophy and not just Asana and Pranayama. But about a year into the course my view about Yoga Philosophy changed. Life was changing for the better. I finished my Bachelors and Masters in Yoga Shastra and got a gold medal. I started conducting lectures and workshops at various colleges,  institutes and Yoga groups to promote Yoga philosophy, Asana and Pranayama.

When it was time to select the topic for my Ph.D thesis I knew for sure that I had to take a topic that will help me decode the Yogasutras so that it becomes available for the masses. After 5 years of intense work I submitted my thesis titled ‘Appreciation of and insight into Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras through Structures and Games’ to Nagpur University.

So far, this knowledge is confined only to the academic circles. My goal is to take it to the masses. So, this website has been put into place and it’s proposed to start delivering simple videos to make the masses aware about this brilliant life altering text.

Let’s begin this journey in to the wonderful world of the Yogasutras of sage Patanjali.
