We are delighted to present you with Foundational and Advanced online philosophy learning paths on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Iyengar Yoga Practice, and the greater Yoga tradition. These learning paths emphasize the application of philosophy to the teachings and practice of Iyengar yoga, as well as the practice of traditional Indian chants and mantras. A call-and-response recitation of Samadhi Pada (Book 1) is included to support the learning of this work, as well as a selection of recorded lectures on essential philosophical topics with suggestions on how to integrate such topics in Iyengar yoga classes.
Presented in an easy-to-digest manner with many simple wisdom teachings for daily life, these learning paths are ideal for anyone who is interested in deepening their practice and understanding of Iyengar’s profound method.
This work is dedicated to the Yogic lineage of the Iyengars, and to Sri Krishan Mantriji, who’ve shared generously with me for years. Their wisdom, teachings, support, and encouragement are the wellspring from which these learning paths on Yoga Philosophy and Iyengar Yoga were created.
We are so happy that this course offering aligns with the year of BKS Iyengar 100th year celebration, and hope that it can serve to honour his life and teachings.
