You can explore The Yoga Sutras, The Bhagavad Gita, The four main yoga (Bhakti - love and devotion, Karma - action, Jnana - wisdom, Raja - meditation), the essence of the Upanishads and the beginnings of Hatha yoga.

As you progress you can explore the nature of Reality, Consciousness, and the meaning of life all from two main philosophical schools of thought. Samkhya and Vedanta.

Extra information

You can start where you are at and work up from there. No experience is needed, only inquisitiveness and a willingness to learn and question. You will get plenty of opportunities to ask questions as you go along and no question is to big or to small.

About Me

I teach in an explorational and conversational way rather than pure lecturing. I love to make things relatable and repeatable, by developing an understanding not just regurgitation of information.

Education

I have been studying spirituality for 15 years and yoga philosophy more specifically for 12 years. I have also independently researched different schools of Hindu philosophy of Reality, most notable Vedanta.

In more recent years I have researched the origins of religious philosophy and I'm currently studying consciousness, spirituality and transpersonal psychology as an MSc.

Experience / Qualifications

I have been teaching yoga teachers philosophy for the past 7 years as well as corporate consciousness coaching, CBT coaching and hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy was the start of my enquiry into consciousness, Reality and philosophy 18 years ago.

Philosophie (niveau lycée) : préparation au baccalauréat de philosophie
La philosophie est une matière enseignée en terminale. Parfois perçue comme complexe, la matière est en réalité une magnifique opportunité de développer son esprit critique et sa réflexion personnelle. Au travers de débat, de discussion et de réflexion autour de plusieurs sujets traditionnels de la philosophie, l'amélioration de la culture philosophique de l'élève se fera de manière ludique et agréable. Nous verrons ensemble les deux grands exercices demandés au baccalauréat : l'explication de texte et la dissertation. Nous verrons également les grands thèmes philosophiques : conscient, religion, technique, devoir, justice à l'aide des auteurs mais aussi de vidéos ou de questions problématisées.

Ritika
Yoga Teacher- Asana, Pranayama and Meditation for beginners.
I am a certified 200-hour Yoga alliance teacher from world capital of yoga - Rishikesh. I am passionate about health and I am keen to share my advanced knowledge in this area with you. Yoga is a powerful tool to connect with oneself and one's environment. As a yoga practitioner, you'll do asanas, pranayama and meditation. I've designed this course as a practical guide to Yoga that's specifically made for beginners. You'll learn how to do Surya namaskar A & Surya namaskar B, preform various asanas, pranayama techniques and meditation to not only improve your posture and flexibility, but to explore the spiritual dimension of life. I am patient and caring. All the practices will be adapted to individual's capacity and comfort.

Kenza
Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Meditation, Mantra, Pranayama
A full course of one hour (60 min) with the possibility of reserving for a longer duration (90 min). My classes are mainly oriented on the connection with the breath, the anchoring and the deep muscular work. The lessons are adapted according to the level of the students, and I offer several variations: Hatha Yoga: general category which encompasses most of the styles practiced. "Hatha" means "perseverance", "effort" or even "determination". To be determined to achieve liberation within a certain period. This discipline is in relation with "prana", the vital force and its two components: masculine energies, considered as solar and active + feminine energies considered as lunar and passive. From there was born another interpretation according to which "Ha" & "Tha" would mean the sun and the moon united and balanced through the practice of Hatha yoga. The soul being the sun, constant and stable in its brilliance and luminosity, the spirit being the moon, constantly fluctuating and changing like the phases of the moon. The basic principle of Hatha yoga being to unite and harmonize the opposing energies of the body; the mind and its reactions. We unite the body and the spirit to unite the spirit with the universe. A Hatha yoga class consists of physical postures and breathing exercises. The postures are performed slower and last for a few breaths (30 seconds to a few minutes) to promote anchorage and stability. A real in-depth muscular work. Vinyasa Yoga: the Sanskrit term Vinyasa is derived from 2 roots "Nyasa" which means "to place" and "Vi" which can be translated as "in a specific way". Each movement is linked to rhythm and consciously placed to create a dynamic flow. It is a more rhythmic and powerful yoga which allows to link the postures in a harmonious way with transitions commonly called "vinyasa" and used in particular during the sun salutations. Here we retain the postures in a shorter time than during a Hatha yoga session, but we are still aware of our movements and our alignment. Gentle yoga: for people looking for relaxation, a stretching work inspired by Yin Yoga to release muscle tension and settle into letting go. I invite you to discover Yoga with Hope Arts Studio or to deepen your knowledge if you are already practicing. Meditation: work on the chakras; the 7 main energy centers of the body, often represented by 7 specific colors. During this session, we will focus on a particular chakra to balance and / or unblock it through breathing techniques and guided meditation. We will also explore mindfulness meditation, bringing the moment to the present moment, reconnecting to your “inner self” consciously and without judgment, examining thoughts and emotions. This practice is beneficial for relieving tension and everyday stress. Possibility of private or semi-private lessons in the studio, at home or online. I teach in French and English.

Introduction to philosophy: mind, self, and consciousness
What is the nature of consciousness? Is there a self? Is the mind identical to the brain? Can life have meaning in a physical universe? These are big questions that philosophy can help tackle. Together, we will talk about how to understand these questions more precisely, look at some answers, and learn how to approach both questions and answers using critical thinking tools. Who is this class for? Students who've never taken philosophy, adults who are interested in exploring big ideas, and scientists and entrepreneurs who'd like to learn how to think about these questions in a more rigorous way.

Monika
Private online and offline Vinyasa/ Yin Yoga/ Yoga Nidra classes based on your needs
Hey yogis! I'm currently living in Granada, Nicaragua. If you found yourself staying in this beautiful town or live her permanently, I invite you to try a class with me. If you're somewhere else in the world, looking for an online yoga experience, feel free to contact me as well. I am a certified Yoga Vinyasa and Yin Yoga instructor. I obtained a certificate of a 200-hour Yoga Vinyasa teaching training and a 50-hour Yin Yoga teacher training accredited by Yoga Allience. I also completed Yoga Vinyasa teacher training according to Basia Łukaszczyk's original program and participated in yoga workshops. Currently, I finished 40-hour Yoga Nidra teacher training. To learn more about my education and working experience you can visit my profile. My favourite styles of yoga are Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra and everything in-between. I always create classes based on your needs and wishes. Yoga Vinyasa is a dynamic practice in which breath guides the movement. We will mainly focus on standing and sitting asanas and flowing transitions. This practice warms up the body, strengthens and stretches it. By concentrating on the breath it allows you to rest from the racing thoughts and emotions. Yin Yoga affects deep tissues, including tendons and fascia. It is a static practice in which we stay in deep stretching positions for extended periods of time which allows to increase mobility and range of motion in the joints. In this stillness we devote ourselves to inner work - directing the breath to places that need it the most and observing and calming our thoughts. Yoga Nidra is a magical experience of building the sensation of wholeness within you. It will relax you, may also activate emotions which have been living within you for some time. In Yoga Nidra classes you stay in Savasana or sitting position and follow my voice. Classes include body scanning, breathing technics and visualizations. We try to relax you and at the same time work with traumas, anxiety and other challenging states and feelings. If you are still interested, let me know and we will try to create a nice experience for you! Monika

Speed-Reading, Philosophy, Literacy, Literature, Psychology
Here's what I can do for you: - Develop a reading habit (a book a week is not an unreasonable goal); - Teach you how to speed-read so you can read twice, or thrice, as fast without loss in comprehension (speed-reading is really just a fancy name for college-level reading skills, a phenomenon which can be taught and practised without recourse to magical beliefs); - Take you through a tour through the body of Western Classics that Wikipedia defines as a "body of high culture literature, music, philosophy, and works of art ... from Socrates to Wittgenstein in philosophy, and from Homer to James Joyce in literature"; - And finally, be an English conversational partner and personal tutor who does all the usual things to help you enjoy speaking and reading in English (about how English is formally taught, most "dreaded" English tests and exams are really variants of IQ tests that have little to no relations to how a language is learned and acquired).
