Compassion in Action, Free Your Mind, Gayatri Mantra, Living Free and more!

This course contains the following modules:

1) Compassion in Action

This class explores yoga sutra 1.33 that gives us the groundwork for how to act compassionately in our lives and cultivate enlivened (and potentially enlightened) interactions with others. It's often our relationships to others that create so much mental chatter, and inevitable suffering that it is through these very relationships that we can actually quiet the chatter and alleviate the suffering.

2) Free Your Mind

This class centers around the Upanishadic chant (below) that talks about the yogi's journey into reality.

3) Gayatri Mantra

The Gayatri Mantra is one of the oldest mantras known and it's three-fold significance is not lost on yogis who are looking for a state of balance and integration.

4) Living Free

This class centers around the liberation mantra, or the "mrtyunjaya mantra" that highlights the yogi's ability to be free and whole.

5) The Role of the Guru

Mark Whitwell once told me "The guru should be no more than a friend and no less than a friend." This poignant point stuck with me and has become a pivotal anchor point for all of my teachings from that moment forward.

6) Whole and Complete

Yoga centers around the inherent understanding that we are whole, complete and perfect. The absence of this understanding creates stress, separation and longing in our hearts.
