What you will learn?
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 a profound energy that enlivens us.
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 perspective will offer you the understanding of main goals of yoga and how the variety of practices that sprung from original discipline aims to fulfill those goals. This will give you the 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.
Pranayama (breathing techniques)
Though you will have pranayama practices on each daily practice classes, 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 philosophy of pranayama, philosophy of panch prana, etc.
Mudra (Gesture or Attitude)
Maha Mudra or the Great Gesture is the first Mudra mentioned in both Hatha Yoga Pradeepika and Gheranda Samhita. In Sanskrit, Maha means great and Mudra means a gesture, attitude or seal. Maha Mudra is a technique to raise the human consciousness to higher levels and for improving health. It is highly recommended by yogis. Maha Mudra is best done in the morning when the stomach is empty. It creates a good ambience for meditation practices, hence should be done before the start of meditation.
Bandha (Yogic locks)
Bandha or a yogic lock enables a yogi to block and direct the flow of pranic energy in 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. Bandhas are mentioned in most classical yoga texts like Hatha Yoga Pradeepika, Gheranda Samhita, Siva Samhita, etc. In yogic scriptures, the Bandhas are clubbed along with mudras or yogic gestures. The reason for it is that both Bandha and Mudra modifies the energy pattern in the body to give rise to heightened levels of awareness.
Yoga Anatomy and Physiology
While gaining understanding of 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 understanding of safety during practice. Being aware of how body works, what are the most vulnerable points, how diseases originate and how they affect systems of body, you will learn how to build the practice safely for all students and adapt it for specific needs.
Yoga Philosophy / Life Style Ethics.
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.
After the completion of the course, you will be provided with a YAI, USA, Yoga & Ayurveda Certification of 200-hours, which will grant you the right to teach yoga Internationally.
