Yoga Psychology Course (100 hrs)


Life is constantly changing and stress, anxiety, anger, depression all seem inevitable. This is not only a contemporary issue but has existed for thousands of years according to eastern psychology. The Bhagavad Gita is considered a precious gift from Hindu culture, often being referenced by Yogis, Seers and the wise. It contains solutions to the problems of human life. The Patanjali Yoga Sutras are highly regarded as the authoritative texts on Yoga. They are more than asanas and are used as a guide to living so that we can be true to ourselves. Buddhism is also a popular teaching on philosophies and often regarded as a religion. 

Yoga psychology balances your lifestyle in the face of difficulties. It provides strength to overcome uncertainty and failure. For those pursuing a spiritual path it can be put into practice in daily routine. It is a tool to gain enlightenment.

This course is suitable for those coping with a modern lifestyle, including anxiety, depression, changes of mood, phobias, drug addictions and eating or childhood disorders. Yoga techniques are useful for counselling and psychotherapy. An important study subject for any serious yogi and yogini looking to deepen the spiritual practice.

With Special Guest Speaker Venerable Fa Xun* on Buddhism

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (Ashthanga Yoga) and Bhagavad Gita focus on human life with a goal to achievement which encourages a positive, balanced, contented and peaceful state of mind not dependent on external events or objects. 

Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Lord Krishna, who symbolises supreme consciousness, and Prince Arjuna who represents human consciousness. Prince Arjuna who was in a state of depression and despondency was inspired by Lord Krishna to live with contentment and peace. 

Other references include Buddhism, Upanishads, Ramayan and Mahabharata.
