Live Small Group Yoga Practice & Yoga Texts Modular Overview

– Feel your Self as Being within the Essence of the Ultimate Reality

The Art of Upaniṣat Mysticism – Module Two Personal Sādhana Workshop is limited to a maximum of five students to allow for a personalised approach and in-depth transmission between teacher and student. They are tw0-day course modules continuing the primary principles and teachings from T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar on the Upaniṣat.

“The self born creator bored the sense openings outwards,
so the self looks out at the world rather than inwards.
A wise person, wanting to taste the state of immortality,
stops the senses from moving outwards and turns within to the essence.”
Kaṭha Upaniṣaṭ 2.1.1.

Based in the Cotswolds, they are intended for those Yoga students who, having completed 
an Art of Upaniṣat Mysticism Module One Option, wish to explore, through two 2-day workshops, the primary principles and teachings from T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar teachings on the Upaniṣat and how they inspire and guide our Yoga either for personal development or, if relevant, to enhance professional skills.

“As the spider moving upward by the thread obtains free space,
thus assuredly the meditator,
moving upward by the Mantra obtains svatantra.”
– Maitrī Upaniṣat C6 v22

To deepen the teachings within these important groups of texts we will work specifically with two primary Upaniṣat over two 2-day Workshop modules.

Module Two – The Māṇḍūkya Upaniṣat
Module Three – The Taittirīyra Upaniṣat

To help with our study a verse-by-verse workbook will be provided for both. They are important Upaniṣat and between them offer insights as a potential quintessence of the primary teachings within all the Upaniṣat. As such they will be invaluable support for the study of all the Upaniṣat, as well as a stepping stone from the Art of Upaniṣat Mysticism Module One Study options.
