Saturday and Sunday sessions are for students enrolled in Nalanda Institute’s full Yoga Psychology Training Program. Friday evening sessions are open to the public.
Program Description: Nalanda Institute’s unprecedented 100-hour advanced training in Yoga Psychology explores the embodied science and meditative arts of Indian Yoga and Buddhist Psychology. Embracing ancient philosophical texts, contemporary neuroscience, and engaged personal practice, this program provides Yoga teachers and serious practitioners the rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the psychological, philosophical, and scientific depths of India’s timeless contemplative arts. With attention to the growing impact of Hindu and Buddhist methodologies on current neuroscience, wellness, and daily life, expert scholar-practitioners fluent in these traditions will guide your journey.
The training spans six weekends, with expert guest lecturers on Friday evenings (open to the public), and integrative, experiential modules on Saturdays and Sundays (for trainees registered in the full program).
The lectures and experiential modules explore a comprehensive curriculum, surveying each of the three great vehicles of Yoga Psychology: Mind/Body Integration (Patanjali’s Ashtanga), Social/Emotional Integration (Advaita Vedanta), and Energetic Integration (Tantra). Each vehicle is explored through the lenses of Philosophy and Ethics; Asana; Pranayama; Meditation; Neuroscience and the Yogic Nervous System; the Art of Teaching Yoga Spirituality; and Practical Applications in Health and Life.
In addition to weekend instruction, participants will plumb core texts guided by faculty and group discussion, receive support and structure for developing a personal meditation practice, and complete an individual capstone project incorporating new understandings and perspectives into their own teaching or practice.
