About the Workshop
The mysteries of “yoga” used to be well-guarded secrets. Highly revered were teachers and gurus who understood its inner-workings. It’s said that’s still true… but Patanjali came along and dispersed the wisdom of yoga into bite-size snippets – sutras – for us to digest. Among those sutras is an explanation of the Royal Path to yoga – to the union with divinity. Raja Yoga is that royal path: the 8-Limb path; the path of wisdom.
In the Raja Yoga Experience, we integrate all 8 limbs of “the path” into a tangible, actionable sequence toward our own divinity. You’ll learn to expand the familiar physical (asana) practice incrementally to explore the rest of the royal path toward yoga. This experience incorporates information from the sutra texts along the physical practice.
“A balance must be had between study and practice.” This is the first step toward that balance. The Raja Yoga Experience is great for students wanting to understand more about the philosophy of yoga and for teachers interested in techniques to provide additional components to their classes.
Expand Your Practice; Make it a Path

This workshop motivated me to study more about yoga to compliment my practice.
Audrey W. Yoga Teacher
The workshop was very in depth. I did not expect to learn how to incorporate the 8 petals into teaching!
Ariel B. Yoga Teacher
Great depth into Raja yoga and connecting us back to the truth of yoga!
Michael B. Yoga Student
I’ve never had an integration of the sutras directly in the physical practice. Loved it all!
Jane S. Yoga Teacher
Very information rich and directly applicable. The stillness experienced and the explanation of deeper meaning of yoga were my favorite parts.
Man! Tying the history together with life principles and blending it through a practice was awesome!
Stu is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher bringing his years of scripture and self-study (Svadhyaya) to the mat. He leads classes and workshops that use the physical practice of yoga as a foundation to open the discussions we don’t seem to be having with each other. Both classes and workshops dip into the bigger picture of yoga to help students and fellow teachers navigate their way through day to day life.
In a past life (early 2000’s), Stu developed a “successful” IT career working in everything from small companies to large corporations. In 2012, he traded that in for a path of study, following his passions, taking leaps of faith, and finding something more meaningful… to him. Stu has found the best way to give back the lessons he’s learned is through the eyes - or mat - of yoga.
