Yoga – An Introduction

The word Yoga means union of the individual soul with supreme consciousness – of one's individual spiritual self, the Atman, with the Parabrahman or Paramatman. In short: Yoga is about self-realisation. Our Yoga Retreats and Yoga Teacher Trainings contribute to your personal growth and spiritual evolution.

Even though the practice of yoga is much broader than just body moves, when practiced with precision – with attentive movements of the body, breath control and mental discipline – the physical body’s responses are impressive.

Yoga is one of the few disciplines, if not THE discipline, that concentrates on the whole being. Body, mind, soul. It restores flexibility and mobility by improving breathing, stamina, circulation, and efficiency of the nerves and glands. And it increases energy levels and sets the process of inner healing and integration into motion. The entire body system improves as the practitioner becomes increasingly grounded in the present moment and experiences life with more awareness, compassion and zest, which is the main purpose o Yoga.

Hatha Yoga focuses on the physical body and control of breath; Raja Yoga emphasises work with the mind. Both approaches are important and support each other. To become a perfect yogi one needs to practice both.

The 200 Hrs TTC covers the all-important Asanas (body poses) with Bandhas, Mudras and techniques of Pranayama as well as Meditation practice.

During the course you will also learn about system of Ashtanga Yoga. The wise saints of ancient India formulated these methods to help one evolve spiritually – to purify, revitalise and rejuvenate body and mind.

Ordinary gym and fitness exercises tend to develop only stamina and muscles of the body, while Yoga Asana are designed for both physical and spiritual development.

Practicing Yoga is conducive to your wellbeing on every level of you life, your health and longevity. Its practice optimises absorption of oxygen and maintains balanced activities of your brain, heart and lungs. It strengthens ALL of the body systems (circulatory, digestive, endocrine, immune, lymphatic, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal and urinary). It optimises digestion and circulation of blood, as well as kidneys, liver and all other internal body functions. It therewith helps to remove dis-eases.

In our Yoga TTC, detailed instructions for poses are given and techniques are taught so a student can continue to practice and actually instruct them easily by the end of the course.

The teachers at our school have learned Yoga the traditional way in India from their revered gurus. They are qualified sincere individuals to introduce the system of Yoga to you.
