Vedanta Classes

Vedanta - Yoga for the Mind

Yoga for the Intellect

Let’s face it, it’s easy to be calm and composed when thing’s are going well, but what about when life is challenging? How is it possible to keep your mind calm when things are difficult? The answer is yoga for the intellect.

Yoga for the intellect develops and strengthens the faculty of intellect, which is our ability to manage our mind. It’s our mind that causes all our chaos and stress.

Not to be confused with intelligence, the intellect is our ability to think clearly, to focus on the present and not allow our mind to slip into the past or future. Moreover, the intellect is our capacity for resiliency. Our ability to bounce back and snap out of emotional hangups, which hold us back and prevent us from being who we really are.

No Need for Yoga Mats

Yoga for the Intellect is not about standing on your head, its about standing on your own two feet and getting grounded in the ancient wisdom of Vedanta; a philosophy that originated in Himalayas over 10,000 years ago.

  • I’m your quintessential Aussie guy. Cheeky, enjoys a beer, loves playing and watching footy. Yet I stumbled across a more spiritual side recently—either by accident or design—and I’ve starting implementing the knowledge and I can honestly say in my head and my heart I feel different—my sense of being feels much clearer, happier and more positive.
