ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

YOGA & MENTAL HEALTH

When I am travelling, I always like to attend yoga classes in local yoga studios. I find I meet amazing people, get a feel for the community, and get an opportunity to practice as a student.

 

What I find around the world, however, is that in many places, the essence of yoga is being lost.

 

What we are learning in the classes is the asanas - the poses of yoga - but not why we are doing them. What's missing is the philosophy of yoga.

WHAT IS THIS Program About?

​Most of modern yoga is based on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - an ancient text of 196 sutras, or threads, written thousands of years ago. The Yoga Sutras are a practical textbook to guide your spiritual journey of remembering who you really are.  The Yoga Sutras are divided between four chapters, discussing the aims and practice of yoga, the development of yogic powers and finally, liberation. The Yoga Sutras warn you of the obstacles on your spiritual journey and offer the means to overcome them. 

I was keen to learn more about this when I first started yoga - but when I read the Yoga Sutras book assigned to me in my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training back in 2014 - I just didn't understand what Patanjali meant by his passages. It has taken me over ten years of studying the Yoga Sutras to begin to understand them and apply them to my life.

I want to share this knowledge and study with yoga teachers, and students of yoga who are passionate and want to learn more.

THE PROGRAM

WHAT YOU WILL 
Learn?

​During this class we will:

  • Unpack the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, a 2500-year-old text, in an accessible way 

  • Learn and understand some foundations of yogic philosophy as described by Patanjali

This class is suitable for Yoga Teachers, as well as Yoga Students. It counts as a 100 Hour CEC (Continuing Education Credit) if you are a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance.

OVERVIEW

THE KOSHAS AS A MODEL

From the Vedic Text the Taittiriya Upanishad, comes a model to describe human beings. This is a tool for mapping our experience of self. The model describes five koshas, or bodies. These bodies include:

1. Annamaya Kosha – Physical Body

2. Pranamaya Kosha – Energy Body

3. Manomaya Kosha – Mental & Emotional Body

4. Vijnanamaya Kosha – Wisdom Body

5. Anandamaya Kosha – Bliss Body

Our 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training will follow this map of the human body to explore mental health as it relates to yoga.

Module 1: The Physical Body 

Module 2: The Energetic Body (The Breath)

Module 3: The Mental Body  (Meditation)

 

These three modules make up the Yoga & Mental Health, 150 Hour Training.

TESTIMONIALS

SOME KIND WORDS FROM OUR
Program Students

Meet our students who've been part of past programs.

"I found Alex McRobs and Sober Curious Yoga after I had gotten sober. I'd gone down a rabbit hole of Instagram following yoga and sober hashtags when suddenly I saw a comment Alex had made on a post. I messaged her and joined Sober Curious Yoga and immediately fell in love with the community."
