The true yogi is a Master of everything in his or her own life. To be a master of your own self is to fully understand who you really are and integrate all components of your humanness. Without a dedicated practice, there can be no Self-Mastery. Yogins already practicing asana have taken the first step toward Self-Mastery, now it's time to learn the methodology behind self-mastery via the Eight Yogic disciplines as outlined in the Yoga Sutras. The Eight Limbs are the Master Key to understanding the system of yoga. In this workshop, you'll develop skills and acquire tools that will guide you into boldly being of service for your yourself, community and your business/family life.


We will cover:

  • Eight Yogic Disciplines
  • Yamas- Self-disciples/restraints on behavior
  • Niyams- Spiritual observances
  • Asana- Seat, posture, practice of postures
  • Pranayama- Expansion of vital energy through control of breath
  • Pratyahara- Withdrawal of the senses
  • Dharana- Concentration
  • Dhyana- meditation
  • Samadhi-Complete absorption/Integration


Self-Inquiry & Drishti

We will tie it all together by discussing/analyzing the Authentic Leadership Model to drive the
point that yoga is a complete system of personal development that has real-world impacts.


Bring a note to jot this down and gear to practice in.
