Program

About the training

The training's main objective is to provide the elements to enable each participant to design and self-manage a safe, committed, and comprehensive, personalized yoga practice (asana, pranayama, meditation). This capacity is what defines a yogi(ni) and it is the only solid base upon which to build a teaching repertoire.

Core components

Asana

Based on sustaining careful attention on the quality of the breath as the link between the emotional and the physical, the conscious and the unconscious based upon the correspondence between a specific emotional state and a particular muscular activation pattern (posture) and the underlying breathing rhythm.

Ananda Healing Center aims to integrate the main aspects of the teachings of Turmalai Krishnamacharya as expressed by his students: the safe alignment principles developed by BKS Iyengar, the Trishtana found in Ashtanga Vinyasa as taught by Pattabhi Jois (see below), and the concept of a practice adapted to each individual currently taught through the Viniyoga by Desikachar.

The Trishtana

  • Conscious breathing (ujjay) - movement synergy (vinyasa)
  • Bandha: pelvic floor/lower abdominal activation for safe integrated movement and lower and higher energy centers integration
  • Drishti: mental stability through steady gaze

The presentation of the physical aspect thus relies on the Iyengar anatomical principle of neutral alignment for injury prevention and it emphasizes a dynamic, active perspective on postures as a constant wave of conscious actions and release, that is, internal movement with precise, specific intention.

A daily practice based on a multi-level sequence based on the contents of the Primary and Intermediate Ashtanga Vinyasa sequences (Yoga Chikitsa - Yoga Therapy y Nadi Shodhana - cleansing of the subtle body) serves as a structural framework from which to gradually change and adapt as to cater for each individual, situation and progress.

The departure point for implementing such adaptation is the different conditions in which Vinyasa is taught today as compared to its original setting (adolescent Indian boys who always sat cross-legged on the floor, in a tropical climate) and your own specific constitution (to phrase it in Ayurvedic terms).

The objective is to establish a dialogue through which each participants defines their own sequence and horizon to enable an independent practice that addresses the specific needs and interests of each.

Practice material sourced from the traditions of Ashtanga Vinyasa, Dharma Mittra and Iyengar Schools of Yoga, integrated and reengineered to meet individual needs, rhythms and interests.

Pranayama

At a subtler, underlying level in respect to asana it aims at understanding and directing the energy flows that constantly enter, move throughout and leave the subtle body with denser converging flows at specific centers or chakras and further supported by Kriyas and Mudras.

Dharana

Meditation

Beyond the body and its energy flows, meditation aims at allowing you to rest in pure consciousness untainted by thought or emotion through a gradual process of establishing oneself in the position of judgement-less attention - in awareness - you overflow the limits of notions such as self and others, inside and outside and all other dualistic notional opposites.
