40 hrs contact - 10 hrs non contact
The western world often understands yoga as a physical pursuit. Yet, asana is one part of a whole system, and teaching only one segment of a complete science limits the potentiality for change. To practice yoga we need to know the whole system, the science that supports it, and methodology for implementing it.
These practices were originally taught 15,000 years ago and around 5,000 thousand years ago were shaped into a comprehensive document by people dedicated to understanding and mapping the human mechanism. Viewed as inner scientists, through direct experience they have provided a road map for living our highest human potential.
Using Patanjalis Yoga sutras and the Koshas, we can develop an essential understanding of yoga, allowing our teaching to have full effect and transfer the greatest impact. Yoga is a complete science, providing a framework for individuals to explore their potential. Yoga coach provides the structure to understand and implement the practices that create change.
