Calling all yoga-lovers & spiritual seekers. Isn’t it curious that there are so few options to learn about roots and principles of yoga? There is an abundance of yoga studios that teach asana (physical posture), yet remarkably few that nurture the understanding of the practice. In actuality, the only way to dive deeper into yogic studies is a teacher training program.
But what if you don’t want to become a yoga teacher, commit to a 6 month program, or pay the $3,000+ tuition? We’ve designed a program that teaches yogic philosophies in a structured, social, and engaging way.
Join Michael Stasko as he leads an 8-week Master Class on Yoga Philosophy to dive into the core tenants, scriptures, and lessons of this spiritual system.
Note: there is no physical practice.
Week 1: The History of Yoga - Understanding the ancient roots of today's practice
Week 2: Sanskrit 101 - An introduction to the mother of all languages.
(Learn to say commonly mispronounced Sanskrit words and yogāsanas)
Week 3: Sānkhya Philosophy - The metaphysics of one of India's oldest philosophical systems
Week 4: Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtras - Part 1: Samādhi
Week 5: Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtras - Part 2: Practical insights and psychology
Week 6: Bhagavad Gītā - the story, Karma & Dharma, Karma Yoga
Week 7: Essential Mantra - Sacred chanting
Week 8: Upanishads: Introduction to Vedānta.
