Is this course for you?
Yes it absolutely is! This course is for all enthusiastic students of yoga. Teachers, trainees and students alike.
Here are five reasons to study yoga philosophy
You know that you want to read some yoga philosophy. Your teacher tells you that it’s important. You’ve got the books... but then… where do you start?
It can be very challenging to make headway with any kind of yoga philosophy. In the same way that we need our teachers for our asana practice we need a teacher to lead us along the path of our philosophy study. Phew! Help is here.
A world renowned yoga teacher and psychotherapist
Gitte Beschgaard, author of the 'Gift of Consciousness' is an experienced Iyengar yoga teacher. Aside from Gitte’s work in Iyengar yoga she has studied privately with her mentor Sri Krishan Mantriji in the areas of yoga philosophy, Eastern psychology, Sanskrit, Jyotish and contemplative practice for over 25 years. She teaches and lectures regularly throughout the USA and Europe.
Gitte has put together an innovative and exciting online yoga philosophy distance learning course titled 'Immersion and theory in yogic sadhana'. This course will take you by the hand and lead you gently and easily into the world of yoga philosophy in the most painless way possible. The course will help you to integrate your life and yoga practice with the ancient teachings of the Yoga Sutras,The Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads and other relevant texts.
To keep you motivated and on track with your studies I will be running a series of mentoring study days so that we can study and enjoy learning together. I have studied regularly with Gitte for the past four years completing several courses on Patanjalis Yoga Sutras, Cakras, the Divine Feminine and Jyotish. I have found her teaching to be invaluable. I’m looking forward to sharing all of this with you!
