Advanced Yoga Philosophy Intensive

Venue: Prana Yoga Studio

    Feb. 5 – March 19, 2025

    Wednesday Evenings | 7 weeks 6-9pm



    Required reading:

    • Bhagavad Gita (Stephen Mitchell translation preferred)
    • Upanishads (Eknath Easwaran translation preferred)


    Yoga philosophy brings ancient wisdom to life for direct application in our modern world. These timeless truths help us reflect on what’s most meaningful within, discerning the real from the unreal in our thinking, and reconnecting us with inner authenticity. These reflections bridge yoga on the mat with yogic living, uprooting unconscious beliefs and making space for newness to thrive in all aspects of practice.


    What you can expect from this module:

    • History: an overview of the origins of yoga & timeline of the ancient texts
    • Moksha (liberation): Gain insight into your samskaras (conditioned patterning) and what lies beyond
    • Explore the importance of Ojas as one begins to embody the philosophy that upholds a yogic lifestyle
    • Introduction of the Vedas and Upanishads
    • Explore the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita & levels of aligning with dharma (natural law, deeper purpose)
    • Meditation and the Yoga Sutras: how to practice & how to guide – ancient wisdom for the modern world


    This training counts as 25 hours towards Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Upgrades. It is also a core module for the Prana 300 Yoga Teacher Training.





    What our students are saying:


    “The way that Prana has moved it’s yoga trainings into an online format has maintained the connection between teachers and students… and the teachings have retained all of their potency. It is an immersion that transmits knowledge and insight so that the most can be received and shared, just as in any training that would occur in person. The professional staff, incredible teachers and fascinating information make me forget I am taking a program online. Thank you for offering such nourishing trainings that continue to educate and inspire!”


    “Hello Beloved Teachers. I wanted you to know that any words I tried to use to express my experience this weekend only fell short. I am really humbled by the depth of knowledge and knowing you live. Thank you for starting me on a new journey of what yoga is. At the start of the weekend I was asking myself, what relevance does all this have for me as a teacher? By the end of the 3 days I could see myself as the student studying with his Guru. Maybe even in a forest somewhere, maybe in a previous lifetime, maybe in the next lifetime, maybe in this lifetime.
    Namaste. Bruce”
