In the last blog from Bodhiyoga we discussed in outline some of the main ideas that make up those which Bodhiyoga present in their courses as its main body of teaching i.e. awareness teaching based in the Buddhist tradition.

Bodhiyoga blog series: part 2

In the first Blog about Bodhiyoga we explain in outline the basic concept which is Bodhiyoga.

This can be found on the website:

In this blog we want to continue the exploration of the ideas behind Bodhiyoga so as to clarify what it is we are aiming at as teachers and students.

the girlsIn an nutshell we can describe the process of practice as an attempt to bring about and sustain more and more positivity and growth in our lives. This means more specifically, developing self awareness through practicing meditation, asana, relaxation and study to bring about deeper levels of self awareness so that we can learn to break free of habitually negative states of behaviour. On the positive side, we draw out deeper levels of creative responsiveness based in ethical behaviour and non-harm. We are the heirs of our states of mind and it is us that is responsible for our states of happiness or suffering, delusion or wisdom. Although we live in a world and that world influences us, we are non-the-less the ones that have to choose how we respond to that stimulus.

No.1 in a series on Bodhiyoga Concepts


Bodhiyoga is now in it's third year of teaching. In this blog we are going to outline some of the principles of the courses that we do. This is a new series of blogs that we are launching in order to inform potential students about what we do and to give an idea to yogis who are interested in training, more what they might get from training with us.

When we launched the Bodhiyoga course we had a number of things in mind about what we wanted to present and teach. On the one hand we wanted to present a good solid foundation in teaching practice and hatha yoga methods suitable for modern westerners. On the other hand we wanted to present material from the Buddhist tradition that we considered to be important and integral to developing a yoga practice beyond just the purely physical realms.
