Program

Pranayama

In the classical understanding of Pranayama from the Patanjali Yoga Sutras, it is taught that Prana is the life force while Yama is the practice to control. Therefore, Pranayama can be understood as ‘to control the life force’. The various techniques of breathing exercises and regulatory methods performed by the yogi can allow access to deep levels of healing, psychic expansions, and vital energy which can both support the overall yogic practice (sadhana) as well as health and strength of the practitioner.

During the practice of pranayama, the stimulation of the system of Nadis in the body are activated, in time giving through experience perception realms beyond the physical such as the emotional, the pain, the pranic, and the bliss bodies. Eventually this leads the practitioners through a process both of self-healing and spiritual advancement.

Several interpretations and understandings of what Pranayama is and does have been stated by advanced and realized yogis as well as has been written in sacred texts of India. Some prominent examples of this come from the well-known spiritual teacher Shankaracharya who expressed in his profound teachings on the spiritual thought that the practice of Pranayama is to retain nothing but the experience, thought, and perception of Brahman (pure consciousness).

While in the sacred scripture, The Gita, it has been written that there are two aspects of the breath which are; the outgoing (apana) and the incoming (prana). In this manner when these two parts merge together there is the experience of pure Brahman (pure consciousness). In this state of Brahman, it is beyond the mind, the ego, and duality. In deeper states of Pranayama practice, you have purified the mind, body, and the nadis to such a degree that true meditation is accessed.

Meditation

Beyond the body and mind, you are Atman (soul). Meditation is the art of observing, realizing, and merging the body and mind with the Atman. Ultimately the yogi wishes to merge the Atman (individual soul) with the Paramatma (universal consciousness). An essential principle of yoga is to utilize asanas and pranayama practices to prepare the body and mind for meditation, which is the path of Raja yoga (king yoga).

Dhyana (meditation) is about immersing your consciousness into one of the infinite aspects of the divine; which are bliss, truth, joy, compassion, love, peace, forgiveness, and humbleness among the other virtuous moral values.

Through an authentic meditative practice, you will cultivate a clear relationship with your true self. Additionally, meditation helps you not only to calm your mind but also to boost your immune system with continued practice meditation improves all aspects of your life, and your relation to the world.

Through meditation, you can learn to elevate your energy beyond the destructive patterns of stress, depression, anxiety, or addictions. Ultimately, leaving you feeling completely content and complete within yourself.

Meditation reduces the inflammation response caused by stress. It slows ageing, helps you to increases happiness, gives you energy, reduces anxiety attacks by lowering the levels of blood lactate, and helps to boost your immune power. Experience yoga as preparation for a stable mind and the power of concentration and silence in combination and feel the difference in your body, mind.

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga style of yoga is taught in the Mysore manner by K. Pattabhi Jois. This method of practice is more associated with toning the body and expanding your physical strength. It is more grounding and helps in digesting thoughts. It also helps in activating the nadis, the energy channels, through the structure of the practice.

The resulting effects of Ashtanga yoga practice will be experienced immediately. This particular practice involves a more potent experience of bodily and mental release. This can produce swift healing and strengthening experiences, leaving the practitioner more energized.
