Come for a weekend of reflection on the most authoritative text on yoga philosophy. Originally written in a codified version of Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit, this text requires a commentary to make sense. Although the most popular commentary by Vyāsa (called the Yoga Bhashya) is the standard, there is a rich forest of other commentarial traditions that have emerged from the original text over the millennia.

In this workshop, we will unpack the Yogasūtra's greatest hits in a way that makes sense with a 21st century understanding of a wide variety of contemplative traditions, as well as the latest research in social neuroscience. You will also learn techniques for studying each sūtra that can help you engage your students with meaningful insights while they practice.

What are Advanced Study Modules?

Benefits-05We’ve built our Advanced Study Modular Program around the drop-in concept. There are 11 required modules you need to take, each lasting anywhere from 2-5 days long, generally over a weekend. Modules are taught either by one of our experienced staff members or an international yoga teacher. We bring some of the biggest names in the industry to our studio and programs. In this very flexible modular program, you get to decide which particular module you take, at what time and taught by whom. And you have 5 years to complete 11 modules (some students do it within 2 years though). Modules are generally open to the public as well, so you will be joined by experienced teachers as well as aspiring enthusiasts. Modules can be taken by someone not going after a 300 Hour Certification–though if they decide later to pursue the 300 Hour Certification, they can retroactively include the modules they’ve already taken in the past 12 months only.
