Every aspect of Yoga has that of power to experience you that height of Yoga. Ashtanga Vinyasa is one of the most profound practices in this present time because of Standing poses, Sitting poses, and Finishing sequence, flow & breathing techniques, it is the very popular style of Yoga. For the present generation's lifestyle, Ashtanga Vinyasa is the right practice because the sequence of Ashtanga Vinyasa designed in this way, when the practitioner practice deeply, he/she can experience bodylessness of Ashtanga. The intense Ashtanga Vinyasa is a dynamic of yoga synchronize the breath with progressive series of postures. It detoxifies your muscles and organs, improves blood circulation, increases your stamina, flexibility, strength & stability with a balanced mind. You will practice following sequences
Pranayamas are breathing processes, by practicing these pranas become subtle so there can be spiritual awakening.If we separate this word i.e. prana and ayama.The word "prana" means "vital energy" or "vital force" and "ayama" means "expansion".So pranayama means expansion of prana.But the other meaning of ayama is control.So here pranayama refers to the control of prana. You have seen many people who show different personalities.Some are big singers, some are big actors, some are the big politician.Some people are commanding and some are fascinating.The quantum of prana is different in everybody, the person gets success or failure because of the quantum of prana.So pranayamas directly effect this energy sheath. If there are blockages in this sheath, pranas can not enter in the next kosha i.e manomaya kosha. Students will learn the breathing techniques before practicing pranayamas. The following breathing techniques are preparatory techniques for pranayamas. Then sudents will learn the following pran
Shatkrarmas consists six groups of cleansing practices so that one can purify one's body and mind.Here "Shat" means "six" and "Karma" means action.The aim of shatkarmas is to create harmony between two vital flows, Ida, and pingla, hence attaining mental and physical purification.The shatkarmas also balance the three doshas in the body i.e. Vata(wind), Pitta(bile), Kapha(mucus). If there is any imbalance of these doshas, diseases would be the result.Shatkarmas are practiced before pranayama in order to purify the body.If there are impurities in the body, these can obstruct the pranic flow as well. By practicing asana and shatkarmas, we can remove impurities from the annamaya kosha(food sheath).And if there are blockages in the annamaya kosha, pranas(vital energy) can not enter to next sheath i.e. pranamaya kosha(energy sheath).In the present time, most of the people have their awareness on the annamya kosha because of blockages in the annamaya kosha.So they only think about food and worldly desires. Students will practice :
In yoga, mudrās are hand gestures used in conjunction with pranayama (yogic breathing exercises), and are generally done while seated in Padmasana, Sukhasana or Vajrasana pose. Mudras act to stimulate different parts of the body involved with breathing and to affect the flow of energy in the body and even one's mood.
Students will learn :
Bandha' (bond, arrest) is a term for the "body locks" in Hatha Yoga, treated under the heading of mudra. Mula Bandha, contraction of the perineum. Uddiyana bandha, contraction of the abdomen into the rib cage. Jalandhara Bandha, tucking the chin close to the chest. Student will practice :
Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. "Watching your breath" is meditation; listening to the birds is meditation. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective meditation.
