The Essence of Yoga
lies in the practice of self-study...
However, getting started can be a challenge.
This interactive course is designed to guide you into self-study that is accessible and practical. You will form a commitment to mindfulness that encourages the release of attachments and conditioning that create static everyday life. Each lesson is a guiding step to releasing the ties that bind us to our past so that we may open to the present and move towards the future centered, steady and with ease.
Our self-exploration and self-discovery will follow the study of:
Sankalpa (intention) | Samskara (habitual patterns) | Tapas (intensity & perseverance) | Shani (slowing) | Vidya (clear-seeing) | Abhaya (fearlessness) | Darshana (vision)
Consider this course if you are interested in:
Creating a change in your life, but don’t know where to start
Making sense of life changes currently underway or on the horizon
Deepening the non-physical aspects of your yoga practice
New to yoga, and interested in the philosophies as much as the physical discipline
Taking your relationship with yoga to the next level, but not interested in or ready for a yoga teacher training program
A refresher on the concepts explored in our 40 Days to Free Series and deepening your practice of those teachings
