Are you a yoga teacher that would like to build upon your current understanding of yogic philosophy? Are you ready to take your practice and your teaching to the next level? Join us for Yogic Wisdom for Cultivating Inner Peace and explore the time-honored teachings of yoga philosophy through an avenue applicable to today’s world.

This course was inspired in response to requests from current students, practitioners and yoga teachers coming from different paths and backgrounds to the ShivaShakti School of Yoga. As interest in yoga continues to increase, the level of awareness around the deeper significations of yogic philosophy and yogic practices begin to rise in the hearts and minds of those sincere seekers. This foundational course is based upon the heart of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the 8 limbs of Raja Yoga.

Yogic Wisdom for Inner Peace takes you through a yogic philosophical framework through definition of technical terms, concepts and theory and then brings these teachings to life through living examples, practical applications and metaphor all the while remaining true to the principles of yogic philosophy. It is our vision at the ShivaShakti School of Yoga to adapt the practices of yoga for householder life. Householder life refers to living a yogic lifestyle while participating in the modern world. This course offers detailed teachings on the Yogic Psychology of Patanjali Yoga Sutra, offering you a model for understanding your own makeup, mind and unseen motivators and how to begin to re-pattern yourself to manifest your authentic self.  Begin by taking yoga off from the mat and start applying the wisdom teachings to achieve the goals of your life.  Part I of this 15 hour course covers:

    • 4 Paths of Yoga
    • 8 Limbs of Patanjali Yoga
    • 24 Elements of Samkhya Yoga
    • 3 Gunas- The Three Principles of Nature
    • Meditation and Concentration
    • Patanjali’s Yogic Psychology- Samskara, Vasana and Vritti

Online Format

The course includes 4 modules, each of which include 2-3 recorded talks with approximately 3 hours of recorded content in each module. There are also short homework assignments, through which the participant can reflect on the recordings and the instructor(s) can observe the participant’s understanding of the material. Questions about course content may be submitted to the instructor at the end of the course and the instructor will send feedback and responses to the homework and any questions posed. Participants have 1 year from the time they register for the course to complete material if a certificate and Yoga Alliance CEs are desired. Participants have on-going access to the recordings. Please note that this course is not a “group online course,” and is entirely self-paced.
