However, due to its dense format it can prove difficult to understand clearly without proper guidance. Drawing upon 40+ years of study and practice, A. G. Mohan and Indra Mohan offer this in-depth program in order to educate and guide yoga students in understanding and applying the profound knowledge presented in this important text.
