What Students Are Saying

"Seth Powell has created courses for Yogic Studies that engage the yoga practitioner in an honest, insightful and inspiring dialogue, bringing ancient practices into modern conversations. By illuminating the historical, cultural and social context of yoga, we come to see and understand the emergence and popularity of modern postural yoga as an ever evolving expression of the seeker’s journey toward self-development and ultimately self realization."

Nikki Costello
Founder of The Practice, CIYT, C-IAYT

"The best gift you can give yourself as a yoga teacher."

Brankitsa Matic
RYT, YACEP, Denmark

"I cannot recommend Seth's courses highly enough. His presentation of the material is deep and nuanced while remaining clear and accessible. I eagerly awaited the release of each week's material and plan to return to them periodically for years to come."

Zander Winther
MA Philosophy, Yoga Teacher, Vancouver, BC

"This course was exactly what I needed. The term 'yoga' and its history have become so politicized and weaponized, it's hard—but crucially important, especially for yoga teachers—to separate myth from fact. Seth gently lays out the historical evidence alongside various existing narratives with clarity and compassion."

Nerine Guinée
Yoga Teacher, Amman, Jordan

"To everyone who takes a yogic way of life seriously this course is fundamental. Seth Powell is a young and active scholar not just with deep knowledge about yoga, but also a great and kind teacher who generously explains the history of yoga, clearing misconceptions and encouraging everyone to continue studying."

Macarena González Carmona
Iyengar Yoga Teacher, Chile
