Deepen your understanding of yoga by learning about the first two limbs: yama and niyama.

This program includes philosophy lectures, yoga classes, journaling prompts and a training manual.

Living yoga is the need of the hour.

In this day and age, it has become all the more imperative to turn our awareness inwards and listen to what our mind & body are conveying to us.

However, if we look at Yoga through the lens of a work-out rather than a work-in, we will seldom understand the implications of the essence of Yoga.

For this reason, we have designed this course to guide you in your journey above and beyond your yoga mat. Yama and Niyama originate from the very well known text ‘The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali’.

They are like a map written to guide you on your life’s journey.

Simply put, the yama are things not to do, or restraints, while the niyama are things to do, or observances. And together, they form a moral code of conduct.

During this course you will be journeying through all 10 sub-limbs, taking an in-depth look at each of them separately and learning practical ways of applying them to your everyday life.

This course offers a beautiful and nourishing blend of theory and practices around your understanding of Yama and Niyama.

  • Students who love yoga and want to learn about yama and niyama
  • Yoga teachers who want to deepen their understanding of the first two limbs of yoga
  • Anyone who wishes to learn more about yogic philosophy

This series is created for a modern yoga teacher or practitioner as a way to deepen your experience of the practice.

MADHURA BHAGWAT

Madhura has been on her yogic path for a little over 14yrs and primarily involved with teaching in yoga teacher training. Being born and raised in an Indian family exposed her to yoga philosophy, eastern psychology, ayurveda and mantra chanting at a very young age. Her primary focus has been to offer authentic Yoga and Ayurveda education in the most accessible way to suit a modern lifestyle while passing on the Yoga traditions in the purest form.

She holds experience as the director, course curator and educator of 200 and 300Hr YTTCs. She has wide experience of practicing with Traditional Indian and western Yoga Teachers; she thus represents a beautiful blend of Indian culture with a western approach. She's come to realize how necessary it is to bring back the true meaning of what Yoga really is; the perfect union between body, mind and soul. With her double bachelors in Politics and Law, she has been an audacious educator in the field of yoga, equity and cultural appropriation. Studying with Madhura is an enjoyable and transformative experience.

TESTIMONIALS ABOUT MADHURA

"I now have the fundamentals to carry out my own daily practice and to teach others. Madhura has a wealth of knowledge, she endevours to do her best to create an impact on every student. The teaching is authentic and traditional and the experience will stay with me for life. Namaste. "- Ruth Jardin

"Madhura aims to tie together the traditional ideas together with contemporary teaching techniques. Her style of teaching allows both a depth of knowledge and a freedom from which to develop your own individual style. Madhura has the uncanny ability to identify your greatest weakness, force you to face it and through disciplined practice will turn the defeat of that weakness into a personal triumph. It was a magical experience when I felt I tapped into the mystery and the meaning of Yoga. "- Evita Tereshkova

"I got certified by Madhura in June 2017 and honestly, it was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. The amount of knowledge that I learned including both the traditional and modern teachings/practice of yoga was the most rewarding experience. She taught me so much about the philosophy, history, and technique of yoga that the wealth of knowledge and experience that I gained is absolutely priceless. The course definitely kicked my butt, but I am so much stronger than I was before! I learned so much about myself throughout this journey and I couldn't be more grateful to Madhura for bringing me there."- Nadeya Tahira

TESTIMONIALS ABOUT KASSANDRA

"Kassandra has welcomed me, encouraged me, guided and supported me in building a yoga practice. That's how you feel. That she is right there with you personally, for every struggle and every accomplishment. I had tried developing a practice before with some online videos, but nobody put me at ease and gave me the confidence that Kassandra has done. I have gained so much physically, mentally and spiritually and will be eternally thankful." - Stew Neal

I love her energy, it is the perfect balance between calming and inspiring. She makes yoga feel so accessible with a focus on personal development and growth. I have recommended her to so many friends who have also fallen in love with her classes and teaching style."- Nik Smith

Her calming vocals really help set the tone for her classes and make you feel like you are doing well."- Amanda Jane

TESTIMONIALS

"Thank You! Thank You!,Thank You Kassandra and Madhura for creating and teaching such a well rounded course on the Yamas & Niyamas. I know have a better understanding of each and how to apply them on and off the mat. I am eager to begin weaving them into my teaching as well." - Michelle Sanchez

"Thank you Kassandra and Madhura for this beautiful journey together discovering the first of the eight limbs. I studied these a long time ago when doing my teacher training but having the lecture and then a class plus journaling prompts really helped it sink in so much better this time. I also liked how you could move at your own pace. I also realised how far I have come and learned and still learning from when I did my teacher training. My daily practice has taught me so much about myself. I have learnt to surrender, to let go of relationships that drain my spiritual growth and I trust the journey through life. I would happily pay to attend more lectures and classes around the eight limbs. Forever grateful" - Leanne Masetto

"I’m right where I’m supposed to be and that is good. I trust the pacing of my life. Thank you Kassandra and Madhura for this amazing course, I finished reading Patanjalis yoga sutras a few days ago and this was so helpful to deepen what I took away from this first reading. I’m sure I will come back to these videos to see how my practice and understanding evolves, but I was surprised that without knowing it, I was already incorporating some of these principles in my life. I’m far from perfect but that isn’t the goal, is it? It’s just being content and living more gracefully and gratefully. This course has made me realize and learn so many new things and also shift perspective on others and I can’t thank both of you enough for sharing your insights and wisdom. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, I bow to you." - Trixy Godart

Dear Madhura and Kassandra, Thank you so much for creating this course, it's really healing. This practice brings me solace and direction. The lectures and this beautiful book that you compiled are touching my heart every time, being very relevant and important. I am facing a difficult, challenging time, with a loss of most material possessions that I have cherished, including a respectable job where people were looking up to me, being replaced by humility and financial constraint. Additionally, children and family are all far and out of reach. The lectures of Yama and Niyama are helping me find direction and focus in my life, trying to find myself again, figuring out who I am underneath the material assets and titles. What does my life mean if I am not the important professional who is used to help everyone else? If I live inwards, in my mind, does my life have any significance? I need to learn the answers to these questions. Your comments about how we keep our lives overly busy all the time and lose our own self in the process were so on target! I am amazed how this ancient wisdom is always relevant. Thank you again. - Dorit Ben-Ami

Thank you both for sharing your wisdom, personal experience, and knowledge with us. This is a course that I will revisit regularly. There is so much valuable information, once is not enough! Excellent presentation and Asana practice. 🙏❤️Martha Case

For anyone who is thinking about taking this course, please be kind to yourself and take it!!!! It was the best thing I've done this year! For yoga teachers, it is a great way to learn how to simplify the Yamas and Niyamas to your students. A real pleasure to learn and to teach. - Edy De Pretto

This course is full of great content and was beautifully put together. I've loved the modern applications that made the Yamas and Niyamas so relevant to daily life. A wonderful extension to my teacher training. Thank you. Jennifer Paynter

Thank you so much for the experience of this journey. I really enjoyed the course with a deeper exploration of the Yama and Niyama. It was so meaningful to first read the manual and then hear Madhura speak the words, which seemed to resonate more internally with me. Likewise, each practice with Kassandra emphasized a deeper physical connection and focus to each Yama and Niyama. I am grateful to you both. Namaste. - Linda Verheul

I am so thankful for the knowledge and wisdom you both shared. I have learned to be more patient with myself and everything around me, to look at life through all perspectives, to breath and respond (if necessary). I feel lighter and filled with a warm energy. I never thought I'd enjoy journaling so much. Its like getting to know myself all over again. Blessings. - Cynthia Villegas

Thank you very much for this course, I enjoyed it immensly! The combination of Madura`s lectures with Kassandra`s practices was a great combination for the improving of my life both on and off the mat! Please do consider another course together! - Sia Gosheva-Oney
