Dismantle white supremacy and spiritual bypassing in yoga. Learn the true essence of the Bhagavad Gita from an authentic South Asian teacher raised in the philosophy of Sanatana Dharma. In this course we will:

  • Explore the Bhagavad Gita for the modern times and how it intersects with social justice
  • Learn the philosophy behind one of the greatest and most popular yogic texts that is so often misappropriated and coopted in mainstream yoga
  • Learn to embody your practice and find a deeper meaning in these turbulent times that can help you become more socially activated to help dismantle white supremacy in wellness

This course will leave you feeling more enlightened about the spirituality behind your yoga practice, and how you can take this newfound knowledge off your mat and into your daily life to impact real lasting change and live the wisdom of the Gita now. This training is suitable for all levels of practitioner and for both yoga students and teachers looking to expand their knowledge on yoga philosophy by learning from an authentic South Asian teacher.
