In this episode of The Kriya Yoga Podcast, I interview Zoe Mai. This is a very important episode. Zoe and I discuss the deeper meditation practices within the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.  These practices lead one to the direct and repeatable experience of Samadhi and transcendence. We also discuss the most important siddhis as described in chapter three of Patanjali's work.

Zoe Mai is the director of the American Sanskrit Institute. She studied with Vyaas Houston from the summer of 2006 until his retirement and has been dedicated to teaching Sanskrit using the ASI Learning Model since 2007. She developed the current ASI teacher training, and continues to develop and co-create Sanskrit course offerings with Vyaas.

Zoe is committed to the ongoing development and growth of the Institute. She sees herself as a steward of ASI and is devoted to the organization’s original vision - that anyone can learn Sanskrit.

Your host, Ryan Kurczak, is a Kriya Yoga meditation teacher and author. He was authorized to teach Kriya Yoga in 2005, by Roy Eugene Davis, a direct student of Paramahansa Yogananda.
