Yoga Ignition gives you insight into the practices of Yoga that you can’t get from a studio class.
This is a rich resource, made as targeted and concise as possible so that you get the information you really need to succeed on this challenging path.
The six modules are timed to release over six weeks (or six months if you choose the “Slow Burn” option) but take as long as you need to work with and absorb them. The course materials will remain available to you for a minimum of 1 year from the date of purchase.
Scroll down for an overview of the course content.
Module 1: Introduction and Course Basics
Module 1 introduces you to the basic concepts and approach of the Yoga Ignition Course and covers foundational topics of Yoga practice in general.
You’ll learn some of the history and science of yoga as it was handed down by the ancient rishis, as well as why different schools approach yoga the way they do. Context is everything in this course; knowing what the practices intend to accomplish helps you both commit to your practices and perform them more skillfully.
The module 1 practice clinic teaches you foundational techniques you’ll be using in the homework for the entire course.
Module 2: How to Approach an Asana Class
Module 2 gives you insight, tips, and wisdom intended to help you make the most of studio yoga classes.
As you may have experienced, the character and quality of studio teaching varies widely, but the Yoga Ignition course helps you better understand what you’re doing.
Why? So you can focus on what really matters — in your body, in your awareness, in your intention. Yoga practice is a dynamic synergy of many “moving parts,” some tangible and some very subtle. The more you know, the more you can supercharge your practice.
Module 3: Meditation, the Heart of Your Practice
In Module 3 we get down to business with an exploration of what I like to call “yoga proper”: the practices of dharana and dhyana (concentration and meditation).
If you’ve always equated yoga with asana, this module offers a more correct understanding. Asana — the third of Patanjali’s eight limbs of Raja yoga — is so positioned because it is intended to prepare you physically and mentally to practice the subsequent limbs for meditation.
Meditation is where most of the “magic” of yoga happens, as this module explains.
Module 4: The Body as Instrument
Yoga practice presents us with the paradoxical Truth that we must work with the physical body in order to discover our true identity as That which is not the physical body.
In this module you’ll learn about how your practice works with all the layers of your Being — the five koshas — and transforms them to enable access to higher states of Consciousness.
Module 5: Kundalini and Awakening
Yogis who practice with devotion and consistency over time build up the energetic potential to liberate Kundalini energy in the spine, which triggers the Awakening process.
In this module you’ll learn about the process itself; the challenges it presents to the psychological structures of the ego; integration; healing crises; and more.
Module 6: Designing Your Practice
In module 6 we put it all together. The core principle of Yoga Ignition is the primacy of one’s personal practice. You’ll learn which elements are important to include in your routine outside the studio.
You’ll also learn more about teachers and gurus, the real meaning of a “yogic lifestyle,” and how to set a sankalpa (sacred intention) for your practice and the rest of your life on Earth.
