November Virtual Presentation on the Bhagavad Gita

Devarshi Steven Hartman

The Yoga TeachersAssociation (YTA) is having Devarshi Steven Hartman, ERYT, present the Essence of the Bhagavad Gita on Zoom at 1:30 p.m. on November 12, 2022, for the monthly YTA workshop, which takes place the second Saturday each month.

“Come explore why this ageless poem has been a guide for much of the world in how to attain true happiness and live a life in accordance with a loving, all-powerful God by your side,” says Hartman, founder of Pranotthan Yoga School, former dean of the Kripalu School of Yoga, and former director of professional trainings at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.

“We will dive into the main concepts set forth in the Gita as guiding principles to live by,” adds Hartman. “The Bhagavad Gita is the quintessential text on yoga–not hatha yoga, the yoga of postures–but bhakti yoga, the yoga of love. All yoga practices rest on the foundation of this fearless love and how to attain it, set forth in this scripture.”

Devarshi has been a yoga student and teacher for more than 40 years and is a former Kripalu ashram resident, where he lived for nearly a decade living, studying and teaching yoga. Devarshi is the creator of two best-selling audio series, “The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita” and “Satori–Simple Secrets to Inner Peace.” He leads workshops and retreats around the country and teaches pranotthan yoga teacher trainings.
