The Nectar of the Gītā


Nectar of the Gita

3 part online prograM
& FOR ANYONE seeking personal and spiritual growth

The Gita is called a ‘nectar’ because it concentrates the most supreme and vast teachings of yoga in one place. It transmits those teachings those of us who seek yogic maturation in the midst of the conflict and complexity of life. The study of the Gitā is not an acadamic pursuit but a profound act of love that can transform you word by word. ~ Kaya

What Students Say

Joy Unfolding

"This program has been such a joy unfolding. It puts words to so many things that I’ve felt and known in my heart about reality. I took a whole course on the Bhagavad Gita previously where nothing was illuminated and I couldn’t understand it. I love the way you teach, unpacking every line and utilizing metaphors."

Blown Away

"Kaya, I am blown away by your ability to anchor these teachings in lived experience and transmute them in ways that aren't watered down. I've studied the Gita formally under other teachers and none landed the way this did. Thank you!"

Serious Vedic Study

""This was a remarkably rich, full, deep undertaking, and I am so grateful to you for creating it with such wisdom and care. It was not only a journey through the Gita, but a serious introduction to Vedic thought and the study of Vedic scripture in general. To have a teacher who can unpack the texts and teachings for and with students - I feel so grateful for that gift, thank you.""

Yoga Teacher
Profound Impact

"This program had such a profound impact on my life, my relationships and my teaching. It has been absolutely invaluable. Delivered as traditional a way as possible, with storytelling and analogies that made it digestible and understandable. The technology meant I could sit back and absorb as well as re-watch, pause and take notes and integrate what was being transmitted. Kaya's teaching is humble, humorous and always held in wisdom."

Yoga Teacher
So Happy I Chose this Program

""Kaya, thank you so much for sharing your wisdom. I cannot think of a word that would be a better description but nectar. It has been a wonderful journey with so many rich teachings that gave me so much to reflect on. I will be reading and re-reading my notes again and again, and definitely keep studying this program for a while. I am very happy with choosing this training and I am more than happy that I found you as my teacher. You are a true inspiration. Thank you!""

Finally a Respectful Teacher Student Relationship

"Thank you Kaya for your tremendous generosity. Generosity on so many levels. I previously didn’t understand what it looked like to have a respectful relationship with a teacher. I now see how that relationship benefits students and teachings. I’m so enjoying and embracing being a student again. I'm coming to see that yoga isn’t separate from teaching and teaching isn’t separate from giving. I now understand how central the teacher-student relationship is, in ways that I intuited before but am now truly coming to understand.Thank you for your depth of understanding and the way the teachings filter through your own personality structure. You can only teach the way you teach with generosity. I have listened to your teachings again and again, and I get something new and layered out of every listening and it has caused me to reflect a lot on the process of learning overall.""

Writer & Teacher
Clear and Transformative

""I am so truly grateful to you Kaya. These teachings and the clarity that you bring to them came at a time in my life where I needed clear guidance for my spiritual growth. Your are a gifted teacher with a wealth of knowledge. What I learned through this course applies to every moment of the day. This has increased my ability as a teacher, to share in a way that will hopefully also help transform lives in some way.""

Yoga Teacher
Had a Profound Impact

"The Nectar of the Gītā had a profound impact on my life, my relationships and my teaching. It has been absolutely invaluable.

Yoga Teacher and Teachers' Teacher
So Clear

"I’m REALLY LOVING these teachings. Your explanations make things so clear. It is the reason for the teacher. I could never get this meaning just by reading the texts, so THANK YOU!"

Yoga Teacher
A Life Changer

"I feel extremely blessed to have been given this opportunity. The Nectar of the Gita has been a transformative experience on so many levels , truly impacting my daily being and positively reinforcing love inside and out. This was a life changer Kaya. Your teaching style is gentle yet firm and has an openness of spirit that reflects spiritual teaching of the highest order. A teacher that embraces you in the fold, no hierarchy just friendship and transmission. Well done!"

Yoga Teacher
Deeper Understanding of Life

""This course has opened my eyes and heart so profoundly! I am new to the Vedic tradition. Having the opportunity to learn from you has given me context and a deeper understanding of my life internally and externally. I don't think I could ever express my gratitude and love for you and this course. Thank you, thank you, thank you.""

Daily tasks have become Yoga

"“Your use of analogy to explain complex concepts is truly mind-blowing. The impact of your teachings and practices runs deeply. It has been validating to learn how to approach daily tasks as spiritual practice. With the Gita I now have a resource I can turn to again and again. Now I have a growing feeling of reverence, that everything I do is a sacred offering. I will be coming back again and again to the well that is you and what you share.” ​"

Blown Away

"Wow! Just finished the Nectar of Action. I'm blown away by your ability to anchor these teachings in lived experience and transmute then in ways that aren’t watered down. I’ve studied the Gita formally under a few teachers over the years, and none of them landed the way this did. Thank you!"

Yoga Therapist
A Revelation

"Studying the Gita with Kaya has been a revelation. Finding out how rich in layers the verses are and the crucial differences in what certain words were meant to mean compared with how they are translated in the west. Finding out how applicable it is to everyone’s life. The Gītā has to be unpacked and appreciated and applied. It’s been so incredible. The revelations are endless. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Kaya!"

Pilates and Yoga Teacher
Inspired and Awakened

"Kaya you have gifted us the opportunity to explore the Gita in a way I imagine many people never do. Your teaching has inspired, challenged, awakened and encouraged me. I have felt my understanding of yoga mature and the way I teach and engage with students has evolved. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to learn from you. You hold an energy that is kind and strong, warm and clear, incredibly intelligent and incredibly accessible. Thank you truly from my whole heart!"

Yoga Teacher
Profound and Practical

"Kaya! Your knowledge of this subject is profound! It frightens me. But in a super good way! I have learned so much. Teacher, thank you so much! I find the Gita and the nectars within as a practical means of applying the teachings in day to day living and as a supplement to my faith."

Yoga Teacher and First Responder
Resonating Deeply

"I absolutely adore these teachings and your approach Kaya. They resonate deeply with me and stay with me. I love to revisit my notes and the recordings. I love that you keep in touch with students and that your teachings are relevant and timely. And it makes me think. I really appreciate the bonus classes that you invite us into, your writings and recommendations. You have been a steady, unflickering flame of light in these often overcast and blustery days of late. Thank you."

    a note from Kaya

    Just reading the book or hearing a short lecture leaves students with confusion or feel-good quotes that don’t create meaningful transformation or awakening. To study this text deeply opens the door for the wisdom to truly alchemize the struggles and complexities of life into joy.

    This study is a profound act of love, and these teachings are intended to be for YOU, right now, made personal and meaningful and transformative.

    Students who assimilate these teachings come to live life itself as a yoga practice, in every moment.
