Practice Yoga Austin

The Psychology of Yoga: Eastern Lens, Western Mind

With Michael and Shanti Kelley

March 13th-15th, 2020 in Austin, TX

In this workshop, you will experience the intersections between Patajali’s Yoga Sutras and Western Psychology by exploring how the foundations of yogic philosophy can be applied in modern psychology and self-realization practices. Uncover the true depth of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and how they are relevant to understanding the nature of the human mind and the condition of suffering.

  • Gain insight, depth, and understanding of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras in a clear, comprehensive, and relevant context for the modern practitioner and yogi.
  • Learn to view the nuanced human experience and the process of Integration through the interdisciplinary lens of the Gunas, the Panchamaya, and the Four Line Model of Consciousness.
  • Understand how Yogic Philosophy mirrors the science of western psychology and where they intersect. Develop techniques and language that bring forward those intersections to create depth in practice and the resolution of limiting beliefs.
  • Learn where Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Projections work, Gestalt, and Psychosynthesis land within the Yoga Sutras.
  • Explore the intersection between Neuroscience and Spirituality, how we become separate from our large S/self.
  • Adapt Therapeutic skills, techniques, and models of healing that empower the movement toward remembered Wholeness.
