Yoga Psychology Certification Program | Coach-To-Transformation

Yoga is a way of knowledge, a science. Yoga proceeds systematically to study, explore and unlock the various powers, faculties and levels of awareness within us. Yoga philosophy is a practical philosophy of self-observation and inner inquiry. We learn by applying it in our daily lives’, Frawley, 2008

What does Yoga Psychology mean?

Yoga psychology is a positive science. It analyses human personality and sets ideals and prescribes techniques to achieve growth of human mind. Thus, expansion of consciousness and making oneself the master of his/her mind are the broad objectives of yoga psychology. Mind as described by Freud in terms of conscious, subconscious and unconscious levels was well detailed in the yogic literature, thousands of years ago. The sound practice of yoga enables one to have a disease-free body and keen intellect. Consciousness has a wider meaning in yoga. Balance is the central principle in yoga psychology, and any sort of imbalance in the system— physical or psychological— creates disorders and the solution lies in rebalancing it. Yoga psychology is an applied science. It deals at large with the application and benefits of yogic practices in developing one’s personality traits and leveraging them further to experience a blissful life.

Why Yoga and how is it relevant to

The coaching profession today is entrusted with a responsibility perhaps far greater than we even imagine. Through the leaders and organisations, we engage with, we impact the lives of countless people across the world. As key influencers, we have to rise to this challenge – to do the right thing by our clients and by society, to be rooted in dharma. Yoga psychology is a time tested, scientific study of the human mind. Click to enroll for the program and become a certified yoga psychology coach.

As coaches, it becomes critical for us to comprehend the mind’s working. This insight enables us to have greater presence, listen to truly understand and to ask deeper and more powerful questions. Yoga psychology offers frameworks and models of the personality complex and offers opportunities to address some of life’s biggest questions – what is the purpose of life, what motivates human endeavor, what are the obstacles to change – to cite just a few.

Coaches need to first manage their own selves – their own beliefs and understanding, attitudes and behaviors before the coaching relationship. In the light of this, it is pertinent to look at the science of Yoga Psychology and how it applies to coaching.

The center of our universe-our students OR our coaches. Here is why they like us

“The programme enabled me to connect with many of my Indian clients much more effectively and easily. Our culture is hard-wired into us and Yoga psychology enabled me to connect into that hard-wiring. As a consequence my coaching quality improved and I could see my clients ability to think through and talk about themselves improve when I brought in Yoga psychology words and concepts. Rajas-Tamasic-Satvik is one example. At a coach level I think yoga psychology is a great way to get to “not knowing” – the ICF competency No 4”

Anil Kulkarni, Strategy & Leadership Coach

“ In my quest to find techniques to silence my inner chatter, create more self-awareness and become more present in the moment, this course covered all areas! In fact, I gained so much more than I had initially envisaged or hoped for! I have been able to deepen my self-awareness in such ways I don’t feel I could have achieved elsewhere. By exploring the concepts of yoga psychology, the journey of self-awareness felt more rapid and there have been many “light-bulb” moments! I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Alka and Atul have such a wonderful manner through which they were able to successfully create a relaxed and secure environment in which learning thrived. Being over 4,000 miles away and participating online, I felt I was participating in a highly focused, smooth, relevant course that was executed very well. My understanding of yoga psychology concepts now impacts my thought processes and questioning in my daily life as well as in the coaching process. From my experience so far in applying yoga psychology concepts and frameworks to my own issues or others’, I have felt the pace at which awareness comes is accelerated as, often, I find I can to get to the ‘heart of the issue’! I would go as far as to suggest that Yoga Psychology should be a course for all coaches to undertake before and during their career. For me, it has heightened awareness within me of that which holds me back as a coach. Additionally, for those like me starting out as a coach, yoga psychology has afforded me insight as to what my barriers are which need to be overcome as I start to build and grow my own business.”
