About The Course:

The Hatha Yoga Pradipika describes the science and philosophy of Hatha Yoga:

+ asana (physical postures)
+ pranayama (breath and subtle energy)
+ shatkarma (cleansing)
+ mudra (subtle energetic connection)
+ bandha (energetic locks)
+ samadhi (perfect meditation)

These practices, when combined with deep understanding of how and why they work, help us to overcome the challenges and struggles that hold us back in our day-to-day life.

Written in the 15th century by Master Swatmarama, the text shows a path to its practitioners that will ultimately bring a sense of rich vitality, deep internal peace, and total personal fulfillment–not only for our own sake, but so that we can most powerfully help others.


About Your Instructor:

Master Teacher Michael Roach

Last time Geshe Michael taught this text, he said, "we don’t plan to teach it again. So I think if you like the subject, then I think it’s important to try learn the whole thing now while you can."

Don't miss this opportunity to miss a course!

Michael Roach is the first American to complete the “Geshe” degree after 25 years of study in India. At the same time, he helped found Andin International Diamond Corporation in New York City, where he used yogic principles to help it grow from a small investment to $250 million USD in annual sales. Andin was ultimately purchased in 2009 by super-investor Warren Buffet. Geshe Michael’s profits from the sale were used almost entirely to create and support several charitable organizations, one of which was an input project that has now digitized over 2 million pages of Asia's classic philosophical texts.

Michael has tirelessly studied and translated the great ideas of yogic philosophy for over 50 years.  A master of both Sanskrit and Tibetan, he uses the 100,000+ books in the ALL textual database to ensure the accuracy of his translations. This truly unique translation project of the Yoga Sutra was completed from within the depth and clarity of his 3 year 3 month 3 day silent meditation retreat.  This is why YSI does yoga different.
