Timeless Yoga Teachings for Inner-Realization

A One or Two-Day Workshop

– with Derik Eselius –

Sat. Mar. 30  |  9 am – 5:00 pm

Sun., Mar. 31  |  9 am – 5:00 pm

What are the Yoga Sutras & What Will You Learn?

The Sūtras of Patañjali offer a universal yoga teaching to reconcile the inherent difficulties of the human experience and find lasting peace.  It is a user’s manual to navigate the world most skillfully and fulfill our ultimate purpose and potential.  It does so with terse and uncanny wisdom that has withstood the test of millenia.

This workshop goes well beyond the standard teachings of the eight-limbs and provides students with deeper points of reference for their greater yoga journey. We will put theory into practice and exercise specific asana, pranayama, and meditation methodologies to cultivate a life of peace and spiritual realization.

This training will include the following points of learning and practice:

  • Essential Obstacles in Life
  • Enter the Sacred Heart
  • Four Vehicles for Life Navigation
  • The Mystical Depth of OM
  • Two Sign Posts on One’s Life Path

While in India, he met and became a student of Baba Hari Dass, a yogic adept. Teaching full time since 2001, he skillfully and respectfully makes ancient knowledge accessible to the modern student.
