Understanding the Essence of Yoga

Explanation of course

For most people, Yoga means physical activity, the asanas more specifically. Asanas are yoga postures. But yoga goes above and beyond that… What exactly it is? And how this practice can change people’s lives in a good way?
The reality is that so much is lost when we try to summarize what yoga really is.

With this course, you will understand the essence of Yoga, its origins, and the goal of yoga and we will introduce you to the 8 steps to reach enlightenment based on the yoga sutras of Patanjali.

Module 1

What is yoga? What is the goal of yoga?
Most people think that yoga is only a physical practice. With this module, you will realize what yoga is really about and how Its most transformative effects are found in practices like meditation, selfless service, and personal behavior.

Module 2

We will explain the yoga sutras of Patanjali, one of the most important books of yoga. It contains organized knowledge about yoga from much older traditions and 8 specific steps to reach enlightenment

Module 3:

We are all different, and what works for you, may not be the same that works for me! That is why we are going to explain the different styles of yoga practices in this course. You can choose the one that resonates with you



What People Are Saying:

Aleja's class was absolutely phenomenal! As an avid yogi, it’s not often that I take a class and learn new things or am wow’d by a new experience. This was an entirely different experience from any yoga class I’ve ever taken! The class incorporated mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, strength poses, stretching, and flows. I absolutely loved the combination of all these methods, I was left feeling strong, relaxed but energized and completely present and it wasn’t just after the class, I felt this way for days after!! Aleja guided me through all this in such a way that it completely flowed, it didn’t feel like I was having to transition from one thing to the next. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to connect their mind and body and just feel amazing! I’m totally hooked!
