The Bhagavad Gita is a 700-verse Hindu scripture that is part of the epic Mahabharata (chapters 23–40 of Bhishma Parva), dated to the second century BCE.
This early epc poem is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide and charioteer Krishna, an avatar of Lord Vishnu. At the start of the Dharma Yuddha (righteous war) between Pandavas and Kauravas, Arjuna is filled with moral dilemma and despair about the violence and death the war will cause in the battle against his own kin. He wonders if he should renounce and seeks Krishna's counsel, whose answers and discourse constitute the Bhagavad Gita.
The Krishna–Arjuna dialogues cover touches upon spiritual dilemmas, ethics and philosophical issues.
This ancient text guides you through the process of difficult decision making, on how to find lasting contentment even with the most challenging life decisions. You will uncover, connect with & awaken your most essential self.
Each chapter of the Bhagavad Gita will take us deeper into identifying our true inner voice. This study will reflect into actual events within our modern lives. Through this practice, you will clearly see what are your current situations vs. your past. With each class, we will understand our most authentic action(s) to take. Continued practice will strengthen our decision-making from internal knowing, not our external fears.

"A philosophy major, I had been interested in Eastern thought, but I was not prepared for the incredible depth that Mr. Desikachar achieved with such simple and straightforward explanations. As he talked, yoga was revealed as a real, applicable-in-daily-life, practical philosophy both descriptive and prescriptive. It not only described the structure of the world, the individual and our relationships to it, and explained why we suffer, etc. but it also said what to do about it simply and concretely. Wow! Sign me up!”
Chase travels frequently to give workshops and trainings on a wide array of yoga and yoga therapy topics, such as the teachings of Patañjali’s Yogasūtra, meditation, prāṇāyāma and the therapeutic application of yoga therapy, “I absolutely love to lead experiential workshops that demonstrate yoga philosophy’s practical applications in daily life”. Chase's teaching style is warm, funny and engaging and he appeals to every level of yoga practitioner from beginner to advanced.
