Yogic Keys to a Life Well Lived
Understanding & Applying Ancient Texts to Personal Philosophy
Using Original Texts as our starting place, this course will create a framework for the application of yogic philosophy to everyday life. We will utilize both primary sources and secondary aural histories to construct a personalized interpretation of foundational yogic philsopohy. We examine our own belief systems in the context of this exploration, explore creating and sharing Dharma Talks, and apply practices like Kriya, Meditation and Yamas/Niyamas to “Activities of Daily Living.”
This 25-hour training takes place over one weekend.

Terrence Monte, L.Ac., MSTOM is the founder of Blue Orchid Wellness and a nationally board certified and state licensed Acupuncturist. Terrence graduated as the Valedictorian of his class at Pacific College of Medicine. Originally trained as a mechanical engineer, Terrence received his B.S. from Lafayette College, and an MFA from the University of Iowa. Although seemingly opposite modalities of study, they are, in fact, all designed to teach HOW things function. He is perhaps most proud of the fact that throughout these past 15+ years of academic achievement he has taught yoga full time and accumulated absolutely no student loans.
It is with this diverse knowledge of the Body and Spirit that Terrence appeals to a patient’s own preferences and long term health goals in every treatment. Terrence uses acupuncture, herbs, Tui Na massage, cupping, moxabustion, dietary recommendations, meditation, and personalized yoga programs to create a multi-faceted approach where the patient is highly involved in their own healing. Terrence rejects the old idea that the “doctor knows best” and encourages all patients to take command of their own health. Thus, Terrence seeks to educate and assist patients in their evolution, and consequently gives a high level of personalized follow up to every treatment.
Since 2006, Terrence has managed two different yoga studios in New York, completed 10 different teacher trainings in areas varying from Forrest Yoga to MeditationTraining, and has led international retreats. He has taught yoga and meditation for the last 14 years and hopes to continue teaching until he physically cannot. He was previously the Area Managing Teacher of Pure Yoga before he decided to pursue a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Terrence’s work focuses on presenting the magical and mystical in a simple, approachable, and functional manner for day to day life. Not even an open mind is required; after all, Terrence was dragged into his first class too. Let the work speak for itself.
