in-depth * On-the-regular * Close-to-home
Yoga Club was inspired by a common question that students would ask after Retreats and Immersions: "how do I get more of this?". There was a strong need for in-depth studies, on-the-regular, close to home. Yoga Club is the answer.
Yoga Club is a small, dedicated group (10-15 students) so you receive more attention, adjustments, and connection. Everyone is committed to the semester, so we can really dive deep and cover more ground - with postures, philosophy and practice methodology. There are resources and recordings for learning after the course too.
2019: Dharma - Studies in the Bhagavad Gita
Day/Time: Sacred Sundays, 10am-1pm
Location: The Space SF
The Bhagavad Gita has been a primary text of the yoga tradition for centuries and has inspired modern minds like Mahatma Gandhi, Henry David Thoreau, and Carl Jung.
During the course of the year, we'll break down the content of the Bhagavad Gita to make the major themes more accessible and digestible. There is an opportunity to sign up for the year and also for individual semesters of Yoga Club.
Each Semester has a thematic focus from the Gita and a book that will guide our study.

Year Long Program
The Year-Long Program is similar to a 50-hour Immersion Program. With the year long program, there are a few extra treats:
“Sangha Sessions” - extra session in-between semesters that include a led practice and light refreshments after (like the practice parties) to build community and connection.
A private session and/or Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) reading - these sessions will help to personalize your practice and focus for the year.
