The moral and ethical principles and observances for oneself and for community (Yamas and Niyamas) would have to be always present, both in thought and action, as the student tackles a physically, and a lot of times, emotionally challenging yoga journey. He could not just live by knowing the theoretical aspects of the practice. Yoga is a practical discipline. It is not intended to be studied by the book. The physical body is the gateway to deeper realisations.
A safe and meaningful exploration of the higher functions of the breath and later on, controlling the flow of it greatly depend on the body’s ability to sustain and manage the pressure we would have to face once the advanced breath regulation and controlled meditation practice begins. If the body is weak and blocked, doing these observances could hurt us.
Strong foundation goes beyond muscular/physical exercise. It encompasses a wide and holistic approach which includes aligning the body parts, finding a safe and effective range of movement, timing, regularity, and choice of poses/routine and progression.
Our bodies develop the fastest during the first year of the practice. We achieved most of our gains within the first 6 months.
Inspired by my journey, I am looking forward to sharing with you the same elements I did back then and still do now.
Comprising of lessons which are arranged chronologically, I will prepare your spiritually and lead you through techniques of developing strength and breath awareness. There’s also theoretical study and monitoring as well.
This course forms part of a longer study programme aimed at teaching yoga and energy-channelling. If the calling comes, I will be happy to lead you through it as well.
Completing this course will help you:
Who is the course for?
This course is recommended for general abilities. The lessons are arranged so it is easy to follow by a beginner yet, giving them the tools on how to advance the techniques safely and progressively. Although there is a set of lessons given, I make sure they are up to date and consistent with the participants’ needs and abilities.
If you do yoga already, the additional tips and insights I give will help you refine and grow your technique. There’s also a huge focus on breath awareness and mindfulness, which is oftentimes lacking, tricky and difficult to master in the practice.
