4 Week Intensive 
Yoga Philosophy Courses

The 4 week intensive courses are meant for advanced students who wish to be in close contact with Dr. Ranganathan as they progress through the teaching content. Students have two year access to the video lecture content, bespoke, weekly Q and A support from Dr. Ranganathan, which accommodates student schedules, and are offered a bonus, 1 hour personal consultation, valued at $198. 


Yoga Philosophy is unusual as it is instruction on yoga and philosophy by a yogi who is a professional philosopher, author of over 50 peer reviewed publications, who specializes in translation, South Asian philosophy, and Yoga. Now students of Yoga Philosophy can earn two levels of certification, either for their own edification, or to set themselves apart as qualified to teach yoga philosophy (including yoga ethics) Yoga Philosophy Certification shows to others that your guidance and teaching on Yoga Philosophy is also informed by such research and expertise. Students who successfully complete certification will also gain Dr. Shyam Ranganathan as a reference for Yoga Philosophy job applications. Certification is mainly available to students who: (a) are practicing yoga themselves (broadly conceived, including āsana practice, or meditation) OR (b) have degrees in philosophy or religious studies. Certification adds to significant work that students have been doing already. To earn your Level 1, Yoga Philosophy certification, purchase this qualifying course (through which you will be tested) and complete the four required course that contribute to the 100 hours of training in the Level 1 certification program. Level 2 100 hour certification will follow the same template and will be open to students who successfully complete Level 1 Certification. 

1 Hour consultation

For those who wish to discuss philosophical matters, or perhaps engage in a review of their Yoga business, Dr. Ranganathan offers a 1 hour consultation. Those who wish to engage Dr. Ranganathan for a significant review of projects or concerns are invited to contact Dr. Ranganathan for a free initial consult to discuss scope of work. For those who wish explore philosophical matters already affoot, this is a great opportunity to draw on Dr. Ranganathan's 25 years of research and extensive peer reviewed knowledge about yoga and philosophy. 

Yoga Philosophy Streaming

Yoga Philosophy Streaming includes new, monthly content that addresses current challenges in light of Dr. Ranganathan's extensive ​research in philosophy and practice of yoga. While this contains no personal Q and A support, it is the most modestly priced offering and promises to enrich and support yogis as they deepen their practice.
