Illuminating Yoga Practice with the Wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita


The Bhagavad Gita offers the metaphor of the “spiritual battle,” and presents the yoga path as having three aspects that must be balanced—action, knowledge, and devotion. Swami Kripalu also believed that the Gita detailed both the willful and surrender paths of hatha yoga. He wrote that every sincere practitioner would someday need to ask a teacher the same questions Arjuna asks Krishna on the mythological battlefield. 

Join master-level teacher in the Kripalu and Pranakriya Yoga traditions, Yoganand Michael Carroll, for a program that includes

  • Early-morning internal practices
  • Late-morning pranayama and energy-raising practices
  • An integrative afternoon practice.

Each session of this program includes a teaching from the Gita that adds insight to your asana and pranayama. This active practice raises the questions, allows you to apply the teaching, and helps you move beyond the obstacles of fear and doubt.

Note This program is suitable for all levels however a minimum of six months yoga experience is recommended.
