Module 1: Build Confidence in Your Yoga
All the things you knew but didn’t know…
Do you feel like an imposter yogi? Do you feel like there is more to Yoga than you currently know? BUT, somewhere inside you feel it. What if you were given the opportunity to explore the path beyond asana accessibly, with support, on your time, and within your budget. What if you could deepen your journey NOW? Would you? Are you ready to shift the paradigm of Yoga?
Module 1 provides the tools, the skills, the practices, the instruction, and the opportunity to expand your practice beyond its current limits, and to deepen your understanding of Tantra, Asana, Prana, and Meditation. This is a truly transformative program that will impact every aspect of your life.
Module 1 provides an introduction to the 5 (Pancha) Kosha model of Vedanta, and an exploration of Annamaya Kosha, The Sheath of the Body. The Kosha model provides a framework to understand and explore our physical existence. The Advanced Studies Online Program will explore one Kosha in depth per Module. There will be a total of 4 Online Modules. Click here for details.
