Sukshma Vyayama is an ancient practice introduced by Sri Dhirendra Bhramchari. It is a technique of yogic postures and dynamic movements to activate the subtle pranic body and rejuvenate our joints.
Many yoga teachers focus on asana poster practices but don’t practice these small exercises which are crucial in the development of strength and flexibility in our physical body and to develop our consciousness.
You will be learning the complete sequence of 48 yogic exercises to develop the consciousness in each and every cell of your body.
The literal meaning of the word “sutra” is “thread” and these sutras are just combinations of words threaded together. Within the space of these 196 short sutras the entire science of Yoga is clearly presented: its aim, the necessary practices, the obstacles you may encounter along your path, their removal and the results that will be obtained from these practices.
The Samadhi Pada, Sadhana Pada, Vibhuti Pada and Kaivalya Pada - We cover the four chapters of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras in this course offering you a greater understanding of his teachings and highlight the importance these teachings have today in our daily life.
"The song of god" is a conversation between the warrior Arjuna and his guide Lord Krishna. Arjuna finds himself in a moral dilemma and seeks help from Krishna.
In these classes we will discuss the 18 chapters and their meaning in detail. We give you more information about the three secrets of the Bhagvad Gita and you will realize that this scripture and its teachings are now as relevant as it was when it was written.
We will teach you how to use this knowledge in your everyday life, especially in particularly hard or over exciting times to keep the equanimity of your mind, no matter the external circumstances.
“Yoga succeeds by these six: enthusiasm, openness, courage, knowledge of the truth, determination, and solitude.” – Swami Svatmarama, Hatha Yoga Pradipika
In Western culture, Haṭha yoga is typically understood as asanas. In the Indian traditions, Haṭha yoga is much more. It extends beyond being a sophisticated physical exercise system and integrates ideas of ethics, diet, cleansing, pranayama, meditation and a system for spiritual development of the yogi.
