About This Event

Lean into the wisdom from The Bhagavad Gita to implement emotional, physical and cognitive self-regulation tools to improve your daily life, both as a teacher and student. Part 1 explored creating a healthy foundation of non-attachment; in Part 2, we had an engaging conversation about the Law of Action.

During the final session of this series, we tie together those lessons with the Power of Surrender. What does it mean to surrender, and how can it benefit you? We will explore how you can successfully apply these life skills in your daily life, during your yoga practice, and as a teacher.

In this workshop, you'll learn:

  • The meaning of surrender and how to embrace the power in it
  • How to introduce surrender successfully as a yoga teacher plus how to connect it with poses and meditation
  • Why you don't need to be a scholar to teach yoga philosophy
