Four pillars comprise the foundation of Eric Paskel's Life Training:

1. Lectures: A series of compelling Life Training lectures cover: What is a yoga practice? What are humans composed of? How to perfect action? What is Life? Four principles of making every relationship loving and easy. Laws of Cause and Effect: Destiny and Karma. (make all of these bullet points?)

2. Exploration Exercises: These activities, designed by Eric Paskel, inspire us to take dynamic action in the moment, and in our lives. Individually and collectively, we will explore our beliefs, mental blocks, barriers and boundaries. All of which keep us from being our best and living the life we want to live.

3. Action Adventure: At Training, we will be challenged on our yoga mat every day, and we will engage in other active adventures that serve as jumping-off points for doing the personal work we need to do.

4. Sharing Circles: Here, we share and listen. We let our feelings, our emotions and our stories enlighten us to the blocks we keep stumbling upon again and again. Authenticity, rawness, and courage are at the core of Paskel's philosophy and approach. "We will never again feel alone, have to hide, or hold our burdens like a bag of rocks we cannot put down.” 

At Teacher Training, we continue to move through the Four Pillars from Life Training. Now that we are grounded and trusting ourselves and each other, we are ready to dig deeper into yoga philosophy, action adventure and our signature experiential exercises to elevate our status as human beings.


Why take this training?

Truly, what makes this program so special is that this is the first and only program, blessed by Swami Parthasarathy, to teach the ancient principles of Vedanta. Without these teachings, I would not feel qualified personally or professionally to lead.” says Eric Paskel

“Every moment of Training is perfectly designed to create a safe and comfortable environment as we break through our personal histories and stories, work through our miseries and forge new destinies.” (If you’re adding quotes, make sure to say who is being quoted) Life Training is a revealing and healing program, one that every human being should attend. Participants, not only come away with a new found direction and inspiration, but also with the support of an entire community, whenever needed.
