Introduction to the Spiritual Practice Of Yoga
Module 1 - Get started learning the deeper mystical philosophy of Yoga
Yoga is an incredible science that gives us the tools to live consciously, spiritually, and skillfully. It is so much more than physical exercise... if you are willing to embrace the holistic practice.
My own practice of yoga has been an incredible exploration into every area of my life. It helped me to connect with what is truly important for every human: my spirituality, my sense of purpose, and my own deeper identity.
If you genuinely wish to understand how Yoga can take you to a deeper and richer experience of your own life, then you are in the right place. Learning and practicing the science is not about making the body into a pretzel, but about unlocking the mysteries of your own Self.

Namaskar! My name is Ved and I support people who want to live in alignment with the spiritual principles of Yoga. Over the years I have had a close relationship with an enlightened Yoga master and have done my best to absorb the deeper practice of Yoga from him. I am very grateful for the opportunity to study yoga and share the practice with others. It is a great blessing to be part of a community seeking higher consciousness and balance in life.
