Yoga Psychology for the Development of Human and Spiritual Resources


“Only by elevating your consciousness, will you be able to improve the quality of your life, to renew your way of being and feeling, of looking at others and the world from new perspectives.
Yoga is a universal knowledge valid at any time, anywhere. It is a science of being that allows you to go deep within yourself and activate your higher faculties.”

Marco Ferrini



This course offers an in-depth study of the millenary psychological science of Yoga, capable of expressing such advanced levels of depth and completeness that still nowadays retain a cutting-edge status and an extraordinary value. Yoga represents an endless universe, with a series of psychological, metaphysical , cosmological and anthropological implications. A science that allows us to reconnect to that inexhaustible source of knowledge, consciousness, and bliss that has always been inherent to the human being.

Yogic wisdom allows to identify the deep causes of suffering and ills. It instructs on how to: manage daily stress and frenzy, overcome one’s conditionings, make important decisions, value one’s potentialities, re-establish a higher balance by harmonising body, psyche, and spiritual being.

The subjects guide us step by step through the practical applications of the psychological science of yoga in every sphere of life: individual, relational, social, professional one.
