Listed below are some of the main teachings of the Yoga Sutras, the ancient doctrine of Yoga, believed to be dated around 2,000 years ago. They have been divided into five main points.
Please also note that this teaching has been and IS the foundation of yoga. Many teachers have not been properly taught what they are teaching, and many are unfamiliar with the following truths about yoga. Their lack of education does not negate what is at the core and under the surface of the physical elements they teach.

One approach to a deeper communion or practice is through chanting repeated mantras. .
Sutras 1.28-29: One is instructed to repeat (mantra practice) this name (Om) to deepen their practice.
The practice is “deepened” because the repetition of the name invites and invokes the associated spirit. “Om” represents a pagan god, and its chanting is an invocation to invite its “energy” into the practitioner to “aid” in reaching new levels of depth, new levels of esoteric experiences, “powers,” and “knowledge.” The same is true of other tones, words, and phrases chanted repeatedly within meditative and yoga practice. I was taught across varying traditions that this practice is effective with or without specified intent. Ie: One does not have to understand what he or she is doing in order to invoke the associated spiritual powers. Essentially, mantra repetition invites a demonic spirit to enter the practitioner and assist them in reaching new “truths” and “understandings.” Often the practitioner is lead to believe what he is experiencing is real truth because of esoteric spiritual experiences of special visions or “gifts” or powers, often accompanied by the sensations of peace, love, and euphoria. These are all results of demonic manipulation.
The Bible warns against pagan practices of thoughtless and repetitious prayers, and instructs in focused, thoughtful prayer–prayer addressed to him alone. See Meditation for more on this.
Exodus 23:13: . . . Do not invoke the names of other gods; do not let them be heard on your lips.
Matthew 6:7: And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard for their many words. (The greek word from which “babbling” is derived is also translated as “vain repetitions”(KJV), “meaningless repetition” (NAS),”empty phrases” (ESV)).
Joshua 23:7: Be very strong; be careful to obey all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, without turning aside to the right or to the left. Do not associate with these nations that remain among you, do not invoke the names of their gods or swear by them. You must not serve them or bow down to them. But you are to hold fast to the Lord your God, as you have until now.
Matthew 6: 9-13: This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in Heaven, hallowed by your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
