Teaching yoga philosophy, non-dualism & desire, healing addiction

Welcome to episode 60 of The Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy and Meditation podcast.

In this episode, Brandt’s discussion covers how to guide people when teaching yoga philosophy, desire and non-duality, whether non-dual philosophy can help people suffering from addiction and what the different goals of our practice may be.

This clip was taken from a live Q&A that Brandt facilitated with students inside the Breathing Deeply Meditation Mentor Certification Program.
