Master course in yogic psychology to understand your personality, manage ego, and change your self-concept.

Join the Mohans in this fascinating and powerful journey to understand yourself. How does yoga view personality? What should you change about yourself, and what is best left unchanged? How can we manage our self-image healthfully? How can we use mantra, rituals, and insights to manage our ego?

Course Description

The “self” is a subject of deep investigation for millennia in ancient Indian wisdom. From the time of the Upanishads to the systems of Samkhya, Yoga, Buddhism, and Vedanta, sages and meditators have examined the self-construct. Modern psychology and then neurobiology has also worked on this subject at length.

Yoga, ayurveda, and other Eastern viewpoints have their own frameworks to understand how our self-construct arises, what we can change, what we should change, and why we need to change.

In yoga, our sense of self is transient; it is a layer on top of our consciousness, a construct that can be dissolved. But the path to that stillness of inner dissolution is only through a stable sense of self that guides the journey. We all need a stable and healthful sense of self.

Ego and pride are damaging in excess. They are at the root of unhealthy entanglements, and corrosive to our life choices and decisions. We need insights and practices to let go of unnecessary ego.

We each have a somewhat different mix of traits. This constitutes our “experiential self.” This is studied under the heading of personality in modern psychology.

In this master course you will:

  • Understand the Eastern, yogic view of the self-construct.
  • Learn and apply yogic frameworks to analyze your traits and personality.
  • Experience mantra-s, rituals, asana and more to work with imbalanced ego.
  • Dive into the connections between Western and Eastern concept of self.
  • Reflect and understand what traits you can and should change.
  • Observe and analyze how your body affects your mind and thereby personality.

Working towards inner peace!

Getting insights from long term teachers and practitioners as the Mohan family is invaluable. There is a lot of clarity and simplicity in the explanations of how our mind works and the role of desire. I loved all the practices they taught in this course to move towards inner peace, soooo useful! I really appreciate all the teachings received.

Perfect pace, perfect presentation

Can not be better. Learned a lot even though I already knew the basics: the Imbalance of one person is his own balance, we should not focused only on production of Agni but balance it! Immediately understood why my practice of Pranayama was not fully effective, and when I added to to it Sitali paranayama, I started to feel better. Now I will look also at the diet.


A generous and very informative course

Thank you for a very rich course. I want to highlight in particular the precisions and nuances introduced by Dr. Ganesh Mohan, as well as the deep of knowledge shared by AG Mohan. It seems to me much more than a 5.5 hours program... much to reflect on :)
