Sukshma Vyayama techniques are very powerful yogic practices that remove energy blockages and activate the subtle pranic body. They are small repetitive strengthening and stretching movements synchronized with the breath to rejuvenate your joints and develop cellular consciousness.
In this advanced 300 h Yoga course we are covering the complete series of 48 yogic sukshma vyayama excercises introduced by Sri Dhirendra Bhramchari.
Chakras are energy centers located in our pranic body. They connect our physical and spiritual bodies and affect our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Located along our spinal cord we have seven main chakras.
For optimal health it is important for the chakras to be open and turning. Chakra meditation is a powerful technique to activate and purify our chakras. When the chakras are aligned there are no blockages in the physical, mental and spiritual areas. We feel energetic, stable and in our center.
Patanjali collected and organized knowledge about Yoga and summarized it in the "Yoga sutras". This very practical approach is about self-experience and experimenting with different practices and finding these that support you on your way to Samadhi.
In this course we will discuss the Yoga sutras and go beyond the eight limbs of Yoga.
Hatha Yoga is a system for spiritual development and includes various practices to reach the union of body, mind and soul.
The most detailed manuals describing these practices are the Gheranda Samhita and Hatha Yoga Pradipika. We are covering these texts and the respective techniques in our 300 hours Yoga course.
