Introduction to the Bhagavad Gita

Some traditional Yoga teacher training courses have the Bhagavad Gita (Song of The Blessed Lord) as part of the program. This seems practical within Raja, Jnana, Bhakti, and Karma Yoga. However, the deeper aspects of this scripture may be lost on instructor candidates who pursue Yogic knowledge only for physical mastery. Therefore, today's interns learning how to become a Hatha Yoga instructor may not be reading ancient texts to expand their knowledge.
