Yoga Philosophy: Geshe Michael continues a teaching, begun last year, on the Yoga Sutra. This is a classic yoga text, composed by Master Patanjali almost 2000 years ago. It’s a guide to the deep practice of yoga—telling us how yoga should transform not just our physcial bodies, but also our minds and our external circumstances.

Yoga Class: Lady Niguma Chakra Series
Lady Niguma lived about 1000 years ago in Nepal and Tibet. She developed a unique system of yoga, using postures, movement and the breath to move up chakras and systematically unlocks energy and resources of the inner body. This system is suitable for both experienced and novice yoga practitioners and is especially effective and practical for modern, urban people. (It has been stress tested in Beijing, New York, Moscow, San Francisco and Detroit….)

Geshe Michael applies Buddhist and yogic principles to business and daily life. This is a practical, how-to approach to finding “investments that never fail”. We are constantly faced with alternatives—this strategy or that one—in our business and personal lives. But we can only expect success for ourselves and others when our actions are founded on both deep wisdom and service. Learn what actually works.
