- Swami Satyananda Saraswati
Yoga is a timeless traditional from Rig Veda with a history of over 5000 years. The Word “Yogasana” (Asana or Posture in brief) refers to a prosture in which one feels relaxed while keeping the body active internally. The Rishis (Vedic Sages) had keenly observed the sitting and standing postures of differnct animals, which in sprite of limited faculties, have wonderful physical capabilities that man is deprived of. They had studied the effects of different postures in the laboratory of their own body and developed specific asanas which had rejuvenating effects on the entire body-mind-soul system. Yoga is a pleasant inward journey of purification that illuminates life beyond pain. Immerse yourself in this amazing journey of self transformation and experience peace and lasting happiness. Yoga awakens the spiritual self, makes the practitioner experience inner divinity.



200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training Course Details

01 Recitation of Sacred Sound (Mantra Chanting)
By combining sound, breath and rhythm, mantra meditation channels the flow of energy through the mind-body circuit, adjusting the chemical composition of our internal states and regulating brain-hemisphere imbalances, contributing to a natural abatement of fear and despair–emotions that underlie both of these common afflictions. By balancing the nervous system, chanting regulates the chronic stress and tension that is the norm for many people in today’s hyper-stimulated lifestyle. And by balancing the endocrine system, chanting normalizes hormone production, which balances our moods and overall sense of well-being.

Gayatri Mantra is a powerful mantra from the Rig Veda that purifies, guided, protects and heals. It removes darkness and brings light. Everyone can chant this mantra.

02 Yoga Postures (Asana)
The Indian Sages of Vedic times – the Rishis, had discovered the super science of Yoga guided practical ways for accomplishing complete well-being. The Rishis had devised methods to awaken the unlimited powers (Potentials) of human life by means of Yoga. The real meaning and scope of yoga and presents a new method of practicing it for strengthening and rejuvenation of body and mind. Students will gain extensive knowledge on yoga postures and will increase their strength, flexibility and discipline. The Yogasana is fast and feasible, yet, comprehensive-in-effect.

Hatha Yoga

According to Indian tradition, one of the primary objectives of Hatha yoga includes deepening concentration, called Dharana, to enhance meditation and bring energy and health to the body and mind by opening the nadis, or channels of Kundalini energy. The opening of nadis through Hatha helps promote spiritual growth and understanding, according to Indian tradition. Because Hatha yoga’s pace is slow and gentle, it is an ideal starting place for people who are new to yoga. One of the more challenging aspects of a yoga practice is combining movements with breathing control, or pranayama; a slow pace assists newcomers in moving correctly with the breath according to Hatha principles. Students of Hatha yoga hold each pose through several breaths.

Vinyasa yoga requires a working knowledge of yoga and is more advanced than Hatha yoga, in that it demands more physically through the poses. This form of yoga is a series of postures that work the cardiovascular system with its flowing movements and quick pace. All of the poses are linked and combined with a rhythm of inhalations and exhalations aimed to build heat in the body. Vinyasa yoga, also called Ashtanga yoga, is a fast-paced series of postures or asanas that focuses on the flow between movements, rather than individual poses.

The purpose of Vinyasa yoga is internal cleansing. By synchronizing the asanas with breathing control, your internal temperature rises. According to Ashtanga, the asanas performed in Vinyasa heat the blood, subsequently thinning it so it flows more freely in the body, which creates a healthier, lighter and stronger mind and body.

03 Pranayama (Breathing Practices)

The Vedic sages (Rishis) have rewarded us with invaluable knowledge for our well-being and mental and spiritual evolution. The yoga science of Pranayama is unique of such precious gifts, which offers enormous benefits to our physical as well as subtle bodies by enhancing our Prana (Vital spiritual energy). The fourth Anga (part) among the eight fold system of YOGA (Astanga-yoga) given by Maharshi Patanjali is Pranayama (Divine breathing exercises to enhance vital energy). Pranayama is composed of two word-Prana and ayama. Prana prefers to th Vayu (living energy) flowing in the word-prana and ayama means its control. Its practice keeps the entire body healthy.

04 Meditation (Dhyana)

Meditation is a systematic practice that promotes physical, mental and emotional tranquility with the purpose of reaching Samadhi (self-realization). Meditation is relaxation. It is not about concentration, it’s actually about de-concentration. It’s not about focusing one’s thoughts on one thing, but instead on becoming thoughtless. With meditation, the physiology undergoes a change and every cell in the body is filled with more prana (energy). This result in joy, peace, enthusiasm as the level of prana in the body increases. Meditation brings the brainwave pattern into an alpha state that promotes healing. The mind becomes fresh, delicate and beautiful. It cleanses and nourishes you from within and calms you, whenever you feel overwhelmed, unstable, or emotionally shut down with regular practice of meditation.

05 Yoga Nidra (Psychic Sleep)

When a yoga practitioner moves through the various internal states of Yoga Nidra, a profound experience of relaxation occurs. This is called "Turiya," a sensation of pure bliss. Yoga nidra, a Sanskrit term meaning "yogic sleep" is a deep relaxation technique and a form of meditation. Also called "psychic sleep," yoga nidra is a state between sleeping and waking. The body is completely relaxed and the practitioner turns the awareness inward by listening to a set of instructions; much like a guided meditation. Performing yoga nidra involves practicing pratyahara ("withdrawal of the senses"), which is the fifth limb of Ashtanga yoga.

Yoga nidra practice results in deep relaxation and expands the individual's self-awareness. Yoga nidra was practiced by ancient sages so they could consciously watch their samskaras, or the "impressions of the mind." They could also purify their samskaras in order to come closer to liberation, or moksha.

The practice of yoga nidra not only involves pratyhara, but also requires pranayama (breathing techniques) and dharana ("concentration"), which are the fourth and sixth limbs of Ashtanga yoga.

In yoga nidra, the practitioner enters their alpha state and their focus shifts to the third eye chakra(sahasrara). It also stimulates the hormones in the pineal gland, which releases melatonin -- a horomone that reduces stress, boosts the immune system and helps prevent illness. Regular practice helps harmonize the brain hemispheres, promoting better mental performance.

Yoga nidra offers other amazing health benefits, as well, including:

  • Calms the mind
  • Relaxes and rejuvenates the body
  • Soothes the nervous system
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Lowers high cholesterol and blood pressure levels
  • Strengthens immunity
  • Improves quality of sleep
  • Treats depression
  • Reduces pain
  • Boosts concentration level
  • Supports brain function & boosts creativity
  • Basic Relaxation
  • Tension Relaxation
  • Full Body Relaxation

06 Yoga Cleansing (Shatkarma)

The Shatkarmas purify the body. Their purpose, however, is not only physical purification, but inner purification as well. When the body is purified, internal disorders are removed and goods health is achieved. Without such purification the body will not be ready for the higher practices of yoga. After purification a human being lives longer on this earth. In the Upnishads and Vedas it states in number places that human beings remains healthy and free from disease, living for a hundred years or more is natural. Rubber-neti

07 Anatomy and Physiology (Sharir Vigyan)

Understanding both types are needed. In terms of Yoga It is must know about the organization of the human body and how different parts of human body work.

08 Yoga Philosophy (Yoga Darshana)

Yoga Philosophy is the foundation of our yoga practice and is the key to earn yogic strength. Through the path of Vedanta Philosophy, you will establish a solid, well-rounded yoga practice. Yoga philosophy, often simply referred to as yoga, is one of the six main darshans, or the orthodox schools of Hinduism. The origins of this philosophy are unclear, but first references can be found in the Upanishads from the 1st millennium B.C.E. Yoga is a dualist philosophy, working with two fundamental realities: purusha, meaning "pure consciousness," and prakriti, meaning "matter." Every living being is a form of connection of these two realities and every living being is considered a union of body and mind. The path of yoga is guided by ethical principles, yamas and niyamas, and should ultimately result in moksha (spiritual liberation).

Yoga philosophy is closely related to one of the other six schools of Hinduism, Samkhya, but unlike Samkhya, yoga accepts the concept of God, described by Patanjali as Ishvara. Some scholars describe yoga philosophy as "Samkhya with God." While Samkhya states that knowledge is the only path to moksha, yoga says that it should be combined with systematic practice, or personal experimentation.
