The online Art of Haṭha Energetics Modules Two to Three each consist of eighteen 121 live video meetings to facilitate a personalised approach and in-depth transmission between teacher and student.

“Whilst Prāṇa circulates in us, we live, and when it goes, we die.
Prāṇa is responsible for different functions in the body.
Prāṇa expresses itself in everything that concerns life.
there is an important question to be answered.
How does Prāṇa penetrate the different areas of the body?”
– Quote from ‘Concering the Cakra’ by TKV Desikachar

Even though the Yoga Sūtra teachings and techniques developed in the Art of Sūtra Psychology 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.

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.
