After years of teaching this course in person, the online version is finally here!! I know many of you have been waiting and I’m so excited to have it ready for you (and it’s SO good!). Registration is only open for a limited time (and then it closes for a year), so sign up today.
Life can feel so out of control.
And in many ways it is.
So what do you do?
We can’t control life. And we can’t stop the reality of change. But we can learn to effect the direction of change in our lives. You can learn to respond to your life with intention (rather than just reacting on autopilot to everything that comes your way). Wouldn’t it be nice to feel like you have a choice in how you emotionally react to things?
Life is messy, distracted, and way too busy. You look at the world and wonder: “Am I the only one feeling anxious, stuck, and overwhelmed all the time?”
You read self-help books. You try a little of this, a little of that. And maybe something helps… for awhile. But then your mom calls, your kid freaks out, your boss piles on the workload, or worse, somebody gets sick, your best friend moves away, or you lose your job and then you freak out. Or maybe it’s just a traffic jam or (another) sink full of dirty dishes that sets you off.
You don’t have to live at the whim of your thoughts and emotions. You can learn to regulate your energy. You can learn to react to life with ease rather than stress. You can learn to reconnect with your inner sense of joyfulness.
I’ll teach you how. The Yoga for Transformation course isn’t a quick fix solution. It’s about creating actual, sustainable change in your life. It’s about creating meaningful practices that lead to a life lived on purpose (rather than out of habit). A life with depth, tradition, and a sense of spirit.
Remember, yoga is about so much more than practicing postures. Yes, yoga includes awareness of your body (which doesn’t mean twisting yourself into a pretzel…), but ultimately yoga is the science of transformation. This course will teach you a wide range of tools that can support you on every level.
“What will happen to me through this course?
Who will I become?”
You’ll still be you. Only you’ll be a clearer version of you. By which I mean you’ll have a clearer sense of who you actually are and what actually matters most deeply to you. And you’ll feel like you have choice. You’ll have a better sense of your habitual reactionary patterns and you’ll have the tools to interrupt them. You’ll be able to pause in any given moment and decide how to act with intention. You’ll recognize difficult emotions for what they are and you won’t feel controlled by them.
Please understand, I’m not saying this course will take away all your pain and make life completely easy… (I wish!). What I’m saying is that you’ll have the self-awareness and skill set to approach life differently. As I said above, we can’t control life and we can’t stop the reality of change. But we can decide how we react to life and participate in life. With the right tools, you can learn to remain grounded and balanced no matter what’s swirling around you. And this makes all the difference. This is transformation.
The overall goal of this course is to help you build a jam packed toolbox so that you know how to support yourself as you work to regulate your energy, calm your mind, deal with difficult emotions, and learn to approach life with more joy and intention.
In this course we’re not pulling together a random collection of ideas. We’ll be working through a time tested complete system of self-knowing and transformation (and I’m talking about thousands of years of testing here!). The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali offer us an ancient, yet utterly relevant system for personal understanding and development.
This course is designed to help you figure out who you are and what you want. It’s designed to help you learn the tools that will actually help you move in the direction you want to go.
There’s a full range of tools—many things are practiced in the moments of everyday life and take 30 seconds. Some things are practiced more formally and take 5 minutes or a half hour. And, of course, there’s everything in between. You get to decide what makes sense in the context of your situation and life.
You’ll have lifetime access to the course so you can work at your own pace and return to helpful teachings as often as you want to.
This course is not about adding another pressure point to your already busy life. There are no rules, tests, or deadlines. You get to decide when and how you interact with the teachings. That being said, I want to be clear that some effort is required here. You can’t move in the direction you want to go without intention and commitment.
Beginning in February you’ll get a monthly module with 2-4 recorded teachings, a practice, some write ups, and several journal pages—all in support of your life. You can cover them all in a single day, dive in once a week, or sprinkle them throughout the month… totally up to you!
You’ll also get weekly emails offering support and inspiration as you work through the module. And we’ll have monthly connection calls to connect in real time.
In this course we explore the complex reality of who we are—body, energy, sensory mind, personality, emotional heart. And we study the individual tools that support us on each of these levels.
In this course we go deep. Together we’ll explore:
- Module 1 | Who am I?
- Module 2 | Practice & Intention
- Module 3 | Suffering
- Module 4 | Relationship & Ethics
- Module 5 | Body
- Module 6 & 7 | Prana (Energy Systems & Breathing Patterns)
- Module 8 | Sensory Mind
- Module 9 | Personality & Stories
- Module 10 | Joy
- Module 11 | Integration & Personal Practice
- Module 12 | I am
Each module includes:
- Recorded teachings (grounded in the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Upanishads, and the Bhagavad Gita),
- Guided practices that integrate the many tools of yoga (asana, pranayama, mantra, mudra, inquiry, guided meditation, ritual, and prayer) to help you digest and embody the teachings,
- A printable packet that includes support and ideas for your personal practice and journal pages for your continued self reflection,
- Recommended book lists with suggested readings,
- Discussion boards for ongoing shared group reflection and questions,
- And a monthly connection call so we can connect in real time and make sure your questions are being answered.
The investment for this course is $300.
Let me tell you a few things about that price:
- The world tells me to make it $299, but I teach clarity for a living and we all know that $299 means $300. 😉
- $300 is a ridiculous price for this course. It’s worth much, much more than that. It’s jam packed with useful resources and practical tools. And it’s not one of those online courses that you sign up for and get left on your own. There’s so much connection built in. But since it’s the first year I’m offering it online I decided to give you a deal. In other words, don’t wait another year to sign up. Go for it now!
Remember, you’ll get lifetime, 24/7 access to the course. So you can work at your own pace. And as the course grows, you’ll always get the new content.
Registration closes in January and won’t reopen until 2020. Start your journey of self-understanding and transformation now. Don’t put it off for another year!
I’m so excited to get to know you and share in your journey. Can’t wait to begin!
