"Dr. Leanne Whitney truly embodies what she teaches! Even after 45 years of meditation and of reading numerous renditions of Patanjali's Sutras, my taking her course recently on the Sutras has given me more clarity, understanding, and love of Gift of Yoga. Her background in depth psychology blends perfectly with the ancient yogic wisdom; in fact, it makes her presentation so much more relatable to the Western 'thinker." Leanne is totally approachable & desires her students to ultimately realize Patanjali's treatise on Real Liberation - and live it. If only our ailing world could genuinely taste some of the wisdom transmitted in her wonderful 5 week interactive videocourse ... Oh, and her book, CONSCIOUSNESS IN JUNG AND PATANJALI, is superb and perfect for those who aim to transform to the good." ~Facebook review 2019
"Leanne’s online courses dive deep with information and insight, into the teachings of Jung and Patanjali. The setting is intimate, comfortable and inclusive. I love that we all had the opportunity to ask questions and have dialogue, at any point during her presentations.
Get ready - they’re PACKED with facts, information and recommended readings. Don’t worry though, they’re recorded, so you can listen to the audio again and again.
Leanne is filled with knowledge, embodied wisdom, and genuine joy. She has a natural ability to make Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras understandable, and to relate them to all aspects of our human experience. I’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg, that is her offerings, yet I have no doubt that she will continue to be one of my greatest teachers." ~ Facebook Review 2019
Yoga is a logically consistent and highly potent healing modality for our time with universal applicability. Its sweep of the globe over the last two decades, primarily in the form of asana, has only begun to scratch the surface of the benefits it can offer. If you yearn to go deeper, this course is for you!
