Summer Semester 2020

Yoga Through a Spiritual Lens

Find Your Spiritual Path

While most people consider Yoga to be a physical exercise, Yoga is much broader and deeper than that.

It is a practical methodology for living a satisfying and meaningful life. Yoga provides teachings on all aspects of living, from caring for the body to tending the mind, to navigating difficult relationships, to finding a deeper spiritual connection.

The foundation of this class is Yoga philosophy, however, there is also the invitation for sangha with others also exploring their spiritual connection.

Your spiritual path can lead you towards reduced suffering, help you recognize when you’re out of balance, and give you the confidence to trust your inner knowing.

In this class, you will explore your own spiritual path through the experience of Yoga.

You will also be introduced and guided through a variety of texts and modalities, including Patañjali’s Yogasūtra, Bhaghavad Gita, Christianity, and Sufi Philosophy, to discover the similarities and differences in their views on spirituality.


The only prerequisites for this class is an openness to exploring your spirituality through the perspective of Yoga.

*You will receive 5 contact hours: Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle & Ethics

Develop more clarity in understanding myself.

Becky brings all of herself to our work together; her professional training in therapy and yoga, as well as her deep spirit and awareness as a fellow traveler through the journey of life. My work with Becky has been integral to helping me develop more clarity in understanding myself and my experiences, discovering my authentic self, and moving toward more integration and harmony on a physical and spiritual level.

What You Will Learn

With the guidance of your experienced teacher, you will learn about the tools and techniques to aid your spiritual growth.

You will first walk through Patañjali’s Yogasūtra with a spiritual lens to discover how the experiential pieces of Yoga help you gain the ability to see your path and “hear the direction.” Through the foundation of the Yogasūtra, you will then explore how other teachings consider spirituality.

Here are some of the texts & modalities you will cover:

  • Patañjali’s Yogasūtra
  • Paramahansa Yogananda
  • Sāṃkhya
  • Bhagavad Gītā
  • Gandhi
  • Teilhard de Chardin
  • Sufi Philosophy
  • The Bible
  • Richard Rhor
  • Sri T.K. Bhashyam

In studying and discussing these teachings, you will hopefully come out of class with an openness to new perspectives. You will understand a variety of ways to climb the mountain — and know that the top is the same.

Your Instructor

Becky Deano

Becky was introduced to yoga in 2000 and her life has never been the same. Her interest in yoga, mental health and spirituality was strengthened while completing her studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute. She holds a license as a professional counselor (LPC), and she also is certified as a Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT).

In 2006 after returning from study in India at the Krishnamacharaya Yoga Mandiram Becky and several fellow yoga teachers formed Yoga Sanga, a studio in Mandeville, La. Having the opportunity to teach and study with this close-knit, committed group for many years has been an amazing gift. The majority of her work life is with private clients; enjoying mentoring other yoga students and yoga therapists, as well as working with those presenting with mental health concerns or exploring spiritual connection.

Luckily she still resides in her hometown which satisfies her obsession with sunsets. Other joys are family and friends, studying dreams, and walks along a seashore.
