What you will learn ?

  1. History & Philosophy of Hatha Yoga (Asana)
    This theoretical session will cover the history and philosophy of yoga and development of yoga from ancient times with analysis of most important books on yoga, until the present days. Such a perspective will offer you an understanding of the main goals of yoga and how the variety of practices that sprung from original discipline aims to fulfill those goals. This will give you an understanding of the purpose of every yoga practice so that you could apply this understanding in your own personal practice and class. Connecting one’s yoga practice to roots makes it more meaningful and gives us better instruments to evaluate progress.
  2. Pranayama
    Though you will have pranayama practices on each daily practice class, you will specially have some classes dedicated to pranayama in which you will learn the following breathing techniques anulome-vilome pranayama, nadi sodhan pranayama, sitkari, ujjayi, kapalbhati, etc. We will also have lectures on the philosophy of pranayama, philosophy of panch prana, etc.
  3. Yogic Anatomy & Philosophy of the Human Body
    While gaining an understanding of the goals and philosophy of yoga and having overviewed the practices that ancient yogic used to meet these goals, we will look at the same practices from the perspective of modern science. We will see how the effectiveness of yogic practices is explained in traditional, anatomical and physiological terms. this topic will also give you an understanding of safety during practice. Being aware of how the body works, what are the most vulnerable points, how diseases originate and how they affect systems of the body, you will learn how to build the practice safely for all students and adapt it for specific needs.
  4. Mantra Chanting
    Chanting has been an integral part of all religions through the ages. as we sit together in one place, we have different thoughts. But when we start chanting, there is one thought and one rhythm in all our minds. all minds become one. this oneness creates profound energy that enlivens us
  5. Yoga Philosophy
    The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body, and spirit are all one and cannot be clearly separated. Yet there is a multitude of philosophical ideas developed by looking into the deeper dimensions of the body, mind, and spirit.
  6. Bandha (Yogic Locks)
    Bandha or a yogic lock enables a yogi to block and direct the flow of pranic energy in a certain way to change the energy pattern in the body. Bandhas not only modifies the flow of pranic energy through the nadis (energy meridians) but also modifies the flow of nerve currents in the nervous system and blood flow through the blood vessels.
  7. Mudra (Gesture or Attitude)
    The Sanskrit word, mudra, is translated as gesture or attitude mudras can be described as psychic, emotional, devotional and aesthetic gestures or attitudes. They are a combination of subtle physical movements that alter mood, attitude, and perception which deepen awareness and concentration. In scientific terms, mudras provide a means to access and influence the unconscious reflexes and primal, instinctive habit patterns that originate in the primitive areas of the brain and around the brain stem. Mudras establish a subtle connection with these areas.
  8. Satkarma (Cleansing Techniques)
    That Satkarma which affects purification of the body are secret. they have manifold, wondrous results and are held in high esteem by eminent yogis. (Hatha Yoga Pradipika 2:23) yogic science gives as much importance to certain cleansing processes as it does to asana or pranayama. without regular cleansing of the system, one cannot gain maximum benefit from yoga practices. Without purification of the body, one will not be ready for the higher practices of yoga.
  9. Ayurveda Concepts
    Ayurveda means ‘science of life’. it deals with each and every aspect of human life. Its first objective is to maintain health and happiness while the next is to manage and restore the status of health and productive state of mind. Ayurveda offers wonderful tools for a better lifestyle. it gives equal importance to our body, mind and soul; therefore works with a holistic approach.
  10. Lifestyle Management with Yoga
    The most appropriate method to attain optimum health naturally is the system and science of yoga. Yoga is not only a series of physical postures or meditative practices. it is a lifestyle which can be lived by everyone, not necessarily those who are sannyasins, sadhus or renunciates. It is a form of understanding, of realizing our interactions in life, trying to improve them, trying to understand the needs of the body, the needs of the mind and also the needs of the spirit. This is the concept of a yogic lifestyle: living according to the laws of the body and the laws of nature.
  11. Vocal Music & Yoga Classes
    Along with all the yoga practices, you will also get the opportunity to learn vocal (bhajan, kirtans, mantra chanting), nada yoga and Indian music lessons from the top musicians and nada yoga masters of Rishikesh, India.
