What are the unique advantages of Online Yoga Practice and Theory eStudy within a 121 meeting between Teacher and Student?

  • Modular programmes offering an individualised progressive pathway
  • Single topic specialisation facilitating a learning intensity and in-depth presentation
  • Exclusive 121 learning environment supporting study and attention to the student
  • Traditional transmission between teacher and student to optimise absorption
  • Relevance to the individual’s situation through dialogue facilitating interaction
  • Studying practice and texts with a personal rather than teacher training priority

It is open to all except complete beginners and offers an opportunity for any Yoga Student, teacher or trainee teacher from any Yoga background to develop and deepen their personal Yoga practice and study.

Complete in itself it offers an in-depth approach to the Bhagavad Gītā, through an experiential appreciation of the core teachings that underpin the Art of Gītā Scripture, either for personal development or, if relevant, to enhance professional skills.

As well as being a sound overview of the context and theme of each of the eighteen chapters of the Bhagavad Gītā, it is also a prerequisite to further work through the Art of Gītā Scripture – Modules Two to Four Personal Sādhana Courses.

A Gītā study workbook with a chapter by chapter index is included as part of the Course Manual for all participating students.

In addition, to support the teaching of this important text we will be using selected verses from the Gītārtha Saṃgraha of Śrī Yāmunācārya. This is an important commentary on the Bhagavad Gītā which very succinctly summarises each of its eighteen chapters into eighteen verses. A relevant verse by verse reference will be provided as part of the workshop manual to help with our study. As such it will be a invaluable support for the study of the Gītā.

The Online Art of Gītā Scripture Module One Framework

The online Art of Gītā Scripture – Module One reflects the teachings of TKV Desikachar and his father and teacher T Krishnamacharya as taught to Paul Harvey over 25 years through:

  • Guidance in emphasising a personal reflective study to support your life.
  • Understanding the principles that inspire and inform Yoga teachings.
  • An overview of primary Bhagavad Gītā concepts around body and mind.
  • Familiarisation with basic Bhagavad Gītā terms and practice techniques.
  • Appreciating how chanting the Gītā can aid their absorption and deepen our understanding.
  • Deepening the reflective aspects of our personal practice with the Bhagavad Gītā.

To present a view of the Bhagavad Gītā through which students can support and develop their own Yoga Sādhana and deepen their appreciation of the possibilities for the Gītā in their lives.

The Online Art of Gītā Scripture Module One Professional

Even though the Bhagavad Gītā teachings developed in the Art of Gītā Scripture Modular Courses can enhance any Yoga Teachers professional skills in the fields of Yoga Psychology and Yoga Therapeutic Healthcare, there is no requirement to teach or to intend to teach Yoga. This is not the role of the course.

The role of this Course is not to train students as Yoga teachers although the Art of Gītā Scripture Course will obviously enhance any Yoga teacher’s skills in the area of Yoga Psychology and Yoga Therapeutic Healthcare. They are offered with respect for the vital source from which these Yoga teachings originated and their place in our age and culture.

In fact, not everybody wants to or actually needs to become a Yoga teacher to further their practice and study. Here the priorities are towards personal development and thus questions relating to our personal practice and study are the priorities. These Courses reflect this viewpoint.

“Abhyāsa, when performed with reverence, without interruption, over a long period of time, will result in a healthy body, acute senses and extraordinary alertness.”
– T Krishnamacharya

The aim is that we are all here in this course as students and it offers an opportunity for all teachers to step back from their teaching role and re-enhance their personal study and practice path.
