Sutra Study

Gurudevi Nirmalananda is always teaching from the yogic texts.  She most frequently includes:


Shiva Sutra

Vijñana Bhairava

Spanda Karika

Yoga Sutra


Bhakti Sutra

and the oral tradition.

She interweaves the sutras in everything she teaches.  Choose in-person studies or online, delve into Gurudevi's podcasts and teachings articles, take courses and immerse yourself in weekends and retreats - you've got lots of options!


This is the most powerful form of study.  Why?  You get it by osmosis while you’re hearing the teachings.  It's as though your ears are on your heart..

Yoga is an oral tradition.  Podcasts are a modern way to apply yourself to the nuances of the teachings and the tone in which they are given.  A collection of Gurudevi’s discourses is online, part of our Freebies.  Each week a new one adds to the library, so you can listen, learn and experience.  Explore all three of our Podbean channels:

Teachings Audios

Shree Guru Gita lessons

Traditional Tales (coming soon)

Books & Teachings Articles

In addition to her books, Gurudevi publishes a monthly Teachings Article. Our online library covers more than 30 years of these profound teachings, all for free.  In addition, each article is recorded as a podcast.
