Five Month Advanced Studies Program

with David Sirgany


Feb. 9-10  |  Apr. 6-7  |  June 8-9

Saturday 12:00 noon – 4:00 pm
Sunday 11:00 am – 3:00 pm


“The Essence of Practice”During this 5-month course of study, students will explore the 8 limbs of yoga as presented in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Particular attention will be placed on helping each person to develop the values and skills required to deepen in the practice. This involves practical applications of asana, pranayama, meditation and their philosophical underpinnings.

Students and teachers from all yogic traditions will benefit from the opportunity to dedicate an extended and focused period of time to discover for themselves the value of yoga as a complete system of practice and living. All participants will commit to working together in a way that embodies the practice values needed to sustain a sincere, committed, open-minded inquiry in a supportive and compassionate environment.

This program is especially well suited for students and teachers who have completed the 2018 Essence of Practice program at The Yoga Solution. Other students of yoga with interest in the following are encouraged to join the 2019 program:
• Deepening your experience and understanding of asana & pranayama
• Cultivating the spiritual dimension of yoga
• Establishing clarity, continuity, and a life affirming practice
• Developing skills for the practical application of yogic values and philosophy in everyday living
