Live Small Group Yoga Practice & Yoga Texts Modular Overview

– Exploring the Eighteen Chapters of the Bhagavad Gītā

The Art of Gītā Scripture Modular Workshops are limited to a maximum of five students to allow for a personalised approach and in-depth transmission between teacher and student.

“What good is the sword of wisdom
to cut away the chains of illusion
if the holder is too weak to bear it.”
– T Krishnamacharya on Bhagavad Gītā Chapter Four verse 32

Based in the Cotswolds, they are intended for those Yoga students who, having completed 
a Gītā Scripture Module One option, wish to explore, through a series of 2-day Workshops, the primary principles and teachings from T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar teachings on the Bhagavad Gītā and how they inspire and guide our Yoga either for personal development or, if relevant, to enhance professional skills.

“Jñānam is the wisdom of ‘I am that’.
Vijñānam is the discernment that ‘I am not this’ ‘I am not that’.”
– Bhagavad Gītā

The Art of Gītā Scripture Modular Workshop focus topics are listed below for each 2-day Module:

  • Module Two – Chapters One to Six –  10 hours
     Hexad 1 verse by verse with the commentaries of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar
  • Module Three – Chapters Seven to Twelve – 10 hours
     Hexad 2 verse by verse with the commentaries of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar
  • Module Four – Chapters Thirteen to Eighteen – 10 hours
     Hexad 3 verse by verse with the commentaries of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar

Each Module offers an in-depth study of a Hexad or six Chapters of the Bhagavad Gītā. It is an opportunity for a Yoga student from any Yoga background or style to experience an in-depth exploration of each chapter of the Bhagavad Gītā over three 2-day modules.

A Bhagavad Gītā study workbook with a verse-by-verse index for each chapter is included as part of the Workshop 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 course manual to help with our study.

The Art of Gītā Scripture Modules Two to Four each offer over 10 hours through 2 days per Module:

  • Exploring some key concepts that surround this teaching on Yoga.
  • How each six-chapter hexad can link to personal practice goals.
  • An in-depth overview of the structure of each chapter.
