What's in this course?

The journey of self-discovery contains obstacles to overcome. This course will explore the five innermost roadblocks (kleshas) that can limit your potential, as outlined in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Each klesha can influence your perception of the world, and thus affect your thoughts and habits. Learn to transcend these powerful triggers, and explore constructive ways to incorporate them in your teaching.

The course provides a comprehensive approach to working with the kleshas through lecture, asana, meditation and contemplation. Each practice will help you identify what is currently limiting you, and empower you to help your students do the same. By the end of the course you'll have a framework for profound personal growth that you can continue to work with through any stage of your life.

What's in this course?

This course is made up of seventeen videos organized into five chapters. Each chapter contains lectures, asana and meditation, with assignments and quizzes to affirm your learning. There are also downloadable PDF's containing the mantras used throughout the course and a Sanskrit glossary and pronunciation guide.

Level

This course is designed for both teachers and dedicated students of yoga. Teachers will learn how to present the philosophy to their students in an accessible and digestible format, however anyone can benefit from discovering how the kleshas are influencing them personally.

How long do I have access to this course?

You will have access at any time, no matter when you purchase it or begin the course, for the life of the course. The course and all included materials are accessible anytime and can be completed on your schedule, across computers and mobile devices.
