Sri Srivatsa Ramaswami
Yoga Master from Chennnai, India
September 14 - 16, 2018


Yoga-Yãjñavalkya is one of the important yoga texts Krsihnamacharya taught, the others being mainly Yoga Sutra and Hathayoga Pradipika.

The Yoga-Yãjñavalkya includes information of yoga not found in the other texts and hence adds to the knowledge base of practitioners. It is more than 500 verses and is in the form of a dialogue between the sage and his spouse Gargi. It is considered to be leading to Vedanta from the classical Yoga of Patanjali. Information about all the Angas, the important Nadis, Kundalini are all unique in this text. The main vital points are all described succinctly. Yogis who have studied the Pradipika and Sutras will find that this text gives considerable valid and unique practical details about Yoga and will be complimentary to the other important yoga texts.
