William K. Mahony, PhD, is known in yoga communities across the continents for his warm, lively and compassionate teaching that is accessible to contemporary yoga students at all levels as well as to those interested in deepening their spiritual lives in other ways.
In his workshops, seminars and retreats, Bill integrates his deep knowledge of yoga philosophy with insights refined over nearly five decades of his own yogic practice. He shares with participants the expansive and transforming wisdom he finds in the splendid texts he studies, and he guides participants in ways they can fruitfully apply these perspectives in their own lives.
Bill’s teaching style is oriented toward sustained group discussion and includes periods of meditation. He enjoys integrating his discussions of philosophy with asana practice led by local yoga teachers, if they wish to do so.
Bill often bases his teaching on important Sanskrit texts that can inspire contemporary yogis in their larger lives. With his guidance, participants in spiritual retreats, workshops and seminars reflect together on teachings from various spiritual and philosophical traditions from India, primarily the Vedānta, Tantra, and Bhakti traditions. He encourages participants to study in a contemplative manner those teachings as they are presented in the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gītā, the Yoga Sūtra, the Pratyabhijñā Hridaya, the Vijñāna Bhairava, Shiva Sūtra, Shrīmad Bhagavatam, the Bhakti Sūtra and many others.
