The Wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita:
Taking Yoga Beyond the Mat

In this interactive workshop on the Bhagavad Gita, a classic on yoga, we will explore the text’s eighteen yoga systems, focusing on immediate practical application in daily life. Each of these systems provides a method of taking yoga beyond the yoga mat into everyday life, so that we can act more skilfully, aligned with our purpose, and in a way that brings out the very best in us.

This workshop is an ideal addition to a yoga teacher’s training course. As well as offering a lively introduction to the Gita as a yoga text (which will include reciting some of the Gita’s mellifluous Sanskrit verses), this workshop will explore the following in depth:

  • Karma-yoga: find purpose and fulfilment through your daily work.
  • Samkhya: discover the changeless self amidst all change.
  • Sattva, Rajas and Tamas: explore the energetic landscape of life.
  • The yoga of the gods and goddesses: how to nurture your divine potential.
  • Bhakti-yoga: how to make your life an expression of sacred love.

The Dharma Leadership Course

Never has there been a need as a pressing as now for outstanding leadership. Thousands of years ago, the rishis, or sages of India, understood the importance of great leadership and of the quality of a leader’s thinking and decision-making. They therefore developed a rich heritage of teachings designed specifically for kings and queens, to help them rule wisely.

In this workshop, previously delivered at the United Nations, internationally renowned author and leadership coach Simon Haas will explore what defines great leaders. Using practical examples and drawing from a rich heritage of ancient wisdom texts, we will uncover timeless principles of effective leadership.

  • Discover the most important qualities that make an inspirational leader.
  • Identify and create personal and organizational habits of success.
  • Explore ancient leadership techniques for thinking, communicating, and acting skilfully.
  • Learn to be an effective leader even in times of chaos, difficulty, and rapid change.
  • Find out how to inspire loyalty and generate vitality in your business or team.
