Yoga Now

Themed practical philosophy talks filmed live Spring 2021.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Course

In-depth, practical exploration of Chapters One and Two of this treasure text of the yoga tradition, filmed 2017 and 2021, with movement, meditation, and sound practices too. Together, we unravel The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the treasure text of the yoga tradition. Patanjali’s text distills and encodes a vast body of practical teachings into a concise and thorough form and provides a frame of reference for a skillful, ongoing inquiry. James Boag infuses our study with the movement, breath, meditation and practices of Hatha Yoga and singing of Bhakti Yoga so we may more easily integrate and harmonize these teachings into our daily lives.

The Mythology Show

Recorded September 2015, exploring practical riches of yoga mythology, with episodes on Ganesa, Mother Divine and Hanuman. Mythology is designed to blow the mind so that we might access deeper aspects of ourselves. Soak in these stories to discover and allow for new dimensions to be revealed. Resist the temptation to seek out the true story, rather let all the possibilities exist. You will never find the same version told twice.

Bhagavad Gītā Chapter Two Course

15+ hours of content, recorded June/July 2015, includes: introduction, series on recitation and series going through the practical teachings of Chapter Two, working from the original Sanskrit, with stories and songs along the way. Gita means song. The Bhagavad Gita is teaching us to sing our own song and be truly ourselves. James Boag unpacks the essential teachings in Chapter 2 – chanting and translating the sanskrit verses, sharing epic stories, and offering timeless insight to accelerate, inspire, and transform our daily lives.
