Yogic Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics
with Jessie Carson
Friday, January 18 to Sunday, January 20, 2019
Learn about the historical evolution of yoga and how this philosophy can be applied to our lives and culture in modern times.
The way to live a yogic lifestyle is to express our practice in everything that we do. Applying this practice to each moment, spreading the values of yoga into our daily, public and personal life is how to live yoga. This course supports participants in cultivating a practice that extends beyond the formal practice itself, and into the rest of their lives.
Stepping into the role of a teacher is an endlessly rewarding path, which also comes with its challenges. It is not the challenges that define a teacher but the way those challenges are met. Ethical issues that a teacher might face will be addressed along with how we can work through them in order to continue evolving as exceptional teachers.
- Develop a broader under standing of the history of yoga.
- Invite in and recognize some of the challenges encountered on the path of yoga and examine how to move through them.
- Explore and understand the foundational ethics of the yoga practice and how we can live with these values in our heart.

About Your Teacher
Jessie’s classes are taught from a balanced and practical approach. Her steady and clear guidance encourages students to both challenge themselves and release the tension that works against creating ease in the body. Having taught since 2002, she is adept at working with students of all levels and can support practitioners in establishing and growing their practice based on the needs of their own bodies. Jessie is a former competitive athlete and massage practitioner who gives regular adjustments in class to helps students stay safe but also to release tension.
Her understanding of yoga continues to evolve but she believes yoga is an art and a science of working with physical and mental discomfort in order to bring more harmony and richness to one’s day-to-day life. Even though the benefits of yoga are vast, she continues to remind herself that the practice of yoga happens in small moments of understanding, connection, and peace.
Having begun her practice in 1999, Jessie is a 500hr Certified Hatha teacher. Her practice and teaching is influenced by the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions and she continues her education through regular trainings and by studying the philosophical texts of yoga. Over the years of dedicated study and learning from wise and informed teachers, she must accredit her son as her greatest yoga teacher, by far.
