Yoga Teaching Inspirations - Myths

Explore myths such as Ganesh, Hanuman, Krishna, Peaceful Warrior and the Power of Om.

Explore several myths in the form of audio lectures in this course including:

1) Ganesh

Ganesh is often thought of as the remover of obstacles, but I prefer to think of him as the revealer of possibilities.

2) Hanuman

Hanuman is a monkey deity and has a great story to illustrate certain things to find out what’s going on in heart and mind.

3) Krishna

Krishna is featured in one of the primary yogic texts, the Bhagavad Gita.

4) Peaceful Warrior

Learn how to teach, through the influence of the Bhagavad Gita, what it means to be a peaceful warrior through specific asana and ways to integrate the dharma talk into the class.

5) The Power of Om

Because Om has all meaning as well as no meaning, it is a great way to bring spirituality into your class through chanting it and balancing the energy in the room.

Alanna is "the teacher's teacher" and is listed as one of Yoga Journal's top 20 teachers under 40. Her approach fills in what's missing in yoga: mythology. She is anti-dogmatic in all things, and her love of science confirms her spirituality, rather than negates it. Alanna’s vision picks up where Joseph Campbell left off — to empower people to connect with and embrace their humanness.
