Introduction to Yoga Sutras: Karma and Habitual Patterns (2016)

Nicolai Bachman explores what karma is, why the theory of karma can explain the inexplicable, and how karma provides incentive to live a kind and honest life. Karma is much more than physical action – not just what we do, think, or say, but also how we interpret what’s coming in. Where these karma impressions are stored in ourselves, they can create habitual patterns (known as samskaras).

We should aspire to create positive samskaras, and avoid creating negative ones. Understanding how our reactive, habitual patterns can work for us or against is the first step in transforming ourselves into beings who can act consciously.

As yoga student and teacher, I am very grateful for the way Nicolai introduced the sutras. His examples, illustrations, and straight forward teaching style along with his chanting of the sutras is a very comprehensive and understandable approach. This is the most understandable and accessible material I have ever come across regarding the sutras. I sincerely hope Nicolai comes back with more on the sutras or any other philosophy.
