Delve into techniques, philosophy, and practice from your own home
Michael had created and filmed several online courses before he died, some of which have never been released. As always, the online courses will continue to be facilitated by associate faculty and practice mentors. The practice mentors each completed a two-year mentorship program with Michael—including assisting at retreats and trainings and guest teaching—and are now mentors themselves.
The online courses are crafted for students who wish to learn more about topics that may not be covered at their local yoga studios or meditation centres, or in the books they’re reading. They allow you to delve into techniques, philosophy, and practice from your own home, on your own schedule, while still connecting with others.
Generally speaking, all of our online courses include:
- weekly videos;
- transcripts of most videos;
- beautiful support materials—whether in print or as PDFs; and
- the option of personal support via Group Chat with associate faculty.
