Hi, I’m Ryan Edmonds (Sevak Hari Singh)


As a geek for ancient teachings and historical wisdom, my fascination with the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali was one of the reasons I studied psychology, and ended up writing my final philosophy research paper in this intriguing text.

Being the principal of the ISHTA Yoga School (and lead trainer of ISHTA Yoga Teachers at the 200 and 500 hour levels) I am thrilled to finally be able to offer an in-depth study of the core teachings of Patanjali's Sutras in a way that is dynamic, meaningful, easily-assimilated and enjoyable.
