Ashtang Yoga:Master your life

The great sage and master, Patanjali was the founder and father of modern Yoga. He was considered to be a fully self-realized avatar, who had mastered the mind, the body, its senses, and even this physical world. He was also a profound knower of knowledge which made him an amazing philosopher and teacher of how to master your life. Patanjali codified, or compiled in a systematic way, the art and science of Yoga in the "Yoga Sutras". The Yoga Sutras succinctly outlines the art and science of Yoga for self-realization. Yoga is a science that deals with Body, Breath, Mind, Soul and ultimately, the Universe itself.
