The Gita with Attitude series provides insight into the potential of living a simple balanced life amidst the complexities of the contemporary world.
Yoga in this approach is a way to live that is balanced, just, and in harmony with one’s essential nature, undisturbed by the complications of life. The focus is on bringing the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita alive.
“Peace is attained when all desires enter like waters into the ocean.
The ocean, when filled from all sides, remains unmoved…”
from Chap 2 sutra 70
The program is designed to follow on from the book Yoga with Attitude, with some similarities in approach to the highly successful Dimensions of Yoga and the Living Consciously programs.
This course has no prerequisites, theory is presented with a light touch, and practices are structured to cater for a range of capacities. It is not an academic or dry journey, it is an experience to be immersed in, to soak up, to be transformed and live by. It is suitable for anyone who wants to drink in the beauty and breadth of Yoga, as expressed systematically in the Bhagavad Gita.
Understanding emerges, step by step, through personal engagement and ongoing reflection.
The structure and content is developed in an accessible way that is designed to bring out the comprehensive system of yoga that is laid out over the length of the Bhagavad Gita.
This is the result of a decades long development process emerging from course developer Swami Vimalratna’s personal sadhana. There is a combination of residential alongside home study and practice in three separate modules that may be undertaken, standalone, or in any order. Swami Sivananda’s ideas, writings and enthusiasm for yoga will be integrated into this course.
