Karma Yoga Leadership Intensive: A One Degree Revolution

What we are about:

Your life is calling you—say Yes!  The life you crave is one degree of change away—and you can make the shift.

Stop thinking about how you’d like to live—move toward it! Join this  exciting and innovative experiment, one that can help you begin to savor your life and flourish so that you can give more to the world. This is not just philosophy; this is about action. Using yogic principles, discussion, meditation, movement, self-inquiry, and self-reflection, you’ll learn to act on ancient principles of contemplative wisdom, transforming your life by diving into it. Abandon old beliefs that keep you stuck, and discover new values and meaning that can empower you to start feeling more alive, connected, and inspired to get going. You’ll emerge from this certificate program with the visceral understanding that every moment is a bold opportunity to thrive and step into your role as a leader. Your take-homes? Tools and wisdom to embrace full ownership of your existence and a real map that you can use for the rest of your life.

During this  2-week yoga leadership intensive you will:

  • Identify your life purpose and gain tools to act on it
  • Delve into tantric philosophy and be inspired to live yoga
  • Discover the power of prana through, meditation, ceremony, and  manifesting through the chakras
  • Create lasting impact on the world by creating a service project to be completed when you finish the training
  • Awaken to the potential of self, other, service and surrender
  • Unleash your true self by releasing limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviors
  • Unveil your potential for meaningful and powerful relationships
  • Learn to truly trust and fall madly in love with your life
  • Step into what it means to be an agent of change and your role as a leader
  • Gain coaching tools you need to bring your vision to the world and to inspire others to do the same
  • Be part of an amazing community–get inspired, laugh (a lot), move, dance, share, celebrate, play, go deep,  and get ready to have a trip of a lifetime.

During our time together you will dive deep into your life purpose, be immersed in tools that will guide you to create a “seva” or service project and identify what your life is really about and how you can take a stand for what you love. This could be anything, it could be to create a recycling program in your home to building a school in a developing country–the goal is to get you going to live your dharma–your unique life purpose.

Core beliefs:

By transforming oneself the world transforms. This is how true transformative change occurs, this is leadership. Our deepest calling is to grow more and more into our authentic self — this is the work of a leader — and constitutes the redefinition of past leadership models.

We are all called to leadership. Leaders consider this life precious and are thus willing to act deliberately in service to life. Moreover, leadership is an inward journey into the depths of what it means to be human.

Leadership is about being fully expressed, about being called to one’s greatness, and about having the courage to act in ways that are in alignment with one’s highest self. The world relies on each of us to heed the call of our heart. There is a divine unfolding of life to hear your personal calling, and the path of yoga can provide the tools to answer this call, and to live a life of possibility, passion and integrity. By liberating your own heart and stepping fully into your authenticity you inspire others to do the same — this is the new way of leadership.

Who this is for:

If you are hungry for self-exploration, inspired action, ready to ignite change, delve into the power of community, you want to make a difference in your life and in your world, are open to collaboration, cooperation, you have passion and certain it’s your time to thrive–then you have found the right program.
