"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it,
or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
unless itn agrees with your own reason and your own common sense."
~ Gautama Buddha
The Great Yoga Quest, Level I, is actually just the first of a graded series of courses that delve deeply into the Wide & Wild World of Yoga. Level I offers a 21 Day Program specifically designed to assist you, the new student or yoga professional, to get your bearings in this new and oftentimes confusing world. By the end of this program, you will have all the essential tools and information to begin practicing and teaching Yoga efficiently and effectively. Not only that, but if you really immerse yourself in this short program and consider all that it has to share with you, your life will see a change that will inspire you to take the Quest further...
Now for the Whys, Whats, Hows, etc.
Why? --> Why not? That was serious, but seriously, why are we here if not to learn, grow, expand our horizons...? Why? Because not only will this program presents a goldmine of valuable information culled from 25 years of the author's personal experience learning and teaching yoga, but it just might shift your awareness and be the thing that helps to create a breakthrough in your life.
What? --> This course is about Yoga -- what it is and what it isn't, and it is about how you can and will help bring these teachings more and more into the world to assist in humanity's evolution to a kinder, healthier, happier, more loving and peaceful co-existence. Perhaps most importantly, it will help you live the best version of yourself and ultimately find peace of mind.
How? --> Through interactive question & answer, quizzes, quotes, pictures, videos, and even jokes and games, you will be led in a fun and lighthearted way to greater health, harmony, and Self-Discovery. Every day we will focus on a specific critical subject or tool you will need on your Yoga Quest. At the end of the program, you will take "The Great Yoga Quest," which will test your knowledge of all that you have learned in the past 3 weeks. By the end of our 3 weeks together, you will have mastered the basic material of the following major categories: Yoga History, Yoga Philosophy, Yoga Terminology & Sanskrit, Asana (including Principles of Sequencing) , Pranayama, Teaching Methodology, Anatomy & Physiology for Yoga, The Business of Yoga, and Yoga Lifestyle. In addition, some helpful resources will be provided to continue your learning.
When? The ideal time to take the course is when you're clearheaded and can set aside a good hour of time in your day to really focus on the material. It is recommended that you do the 22 sections on 22 consecutive days so as to maintain consistency and get the most out of the presentation. However, if that is not possible, know that once purchased, the course is yours, and you can return to it any time you wish.
Where? A nice, cozy, secluded spot would be ideal, especially if you have a laptop. In the middle of Grand Central Station if you really want to test your yogic powers of concentration!
* Graduates of this course will also receive an online certificate from Yoga University acknowledging that you have successfully completed the program. This program is the equivalent of 40 Hours of a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program through Yoga University, and can be transferred if you choose to take a full 200 Hour Yoga TT with Y.U. in the future. It can also be taken for Continuing Education Units through Yoga Alliance.*
* This course is currently in its beta stage of development and is thus priced approximately a quarter of its true value. Once all of the kinks are worked out, the price will match its value accordingly.
~ This Course is dedicated to one of the great contemporary scholars of yoga, Georg Feuerstein (1947-2012), who I never met but consider my teacher. His work has been deeply inspiring for me, and for others who will continue where he left off. ~
"I just read through the first course and took notes. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love the you personality in it. It's good because it doesn't seem as if I'm reading another boring lecture, but instead, genuineness...and so I learn. I love how you ask questions throughout that allows room for reflection. I don't see anything that can be improved because everything is perfect as is."
