About the Programme 

  

19 & 20, 26 & 27 Jan

 

Learn Classical Yoga from its roots of India – Yoga Shiksha leads us into understanding the deeper aspects of Yoga and seeks to transform one's practice positively. We have been continuously learning how to do Yoga poses in classes but only knowing HOW without knowing WHY is meaningless. This 25-hour Continuing Education Training is a unique opportunity to learn the Whys & Whats of Yoga practice, and acquire the knowledge to take your yoga practice beyond the Yoga mat into everyday living and being in the present.

 

Yoga is not merely an exercise but a discovery of oneness with yourself, the world and nature. Embrace Yoga in its totality, which is not limited to yoga postures or the physicalbody but an all-encompassing practice leading to the union of body, mind and soul. Let this become a milestone in your yoga practice and journey.

  

Schedule and Description

  

Session 1:  What is Yoga? (History, Evolution and Present ) & Muladhara Chakra Dharana

19 January (Saturday)

9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word Yuj. Yoga is a 5000-year-old Indian body of knowledge comprised of physical, mental and spiritual practices or disciplines that originated in ancient India. The origins of yoga have been speculated to date back to pre-vedic Indian traditions. Though many think of yoga only as a physical exercise where people twist, turn, stretch and breathe in the most complex ways, these are actually only the most superficial aspects of this profound science of unfolding the infinite potential of the human mind and soul.

Learn about yoga’s long rich history, which can be divided into four main periods of innovation, practice and development such as pre-classical, classical, post-classical andmodern yoga.

 

Muladhara (Sanskrit: मूलाधार) or Root chakra is located at the base of the spine. It is symbolised as a four-petalled lotus. Muladhara is represented with the colour red. The seed syllable is Lam (pronounced lum). Muladhara Chakra is the root centre that is responsible for connection with the physical aspects of life such as stability, safety, security and acceptance.

 

Session 2: 5 points of Yoga Synthesis & Svadhisthana Chakra Dharana

19 January (Saturday)

2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

 

Swami Vishnudevananda condensed the essence of the yoga teachings into five principles for physical and mental health as well as spiritual growth. These are the core teachings of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres and Ashrams.

 

  • Proper Exercise: Proper exercise here means the practice of yoga asanas. The body is as young as its spine is flexible.
  • Proper Breathing: Control of the Prana leads to control of the mind. Pranayama disciplines the prana and proper breathing should be deep, slow and rhythmical.
  • Proper Relaxation: Proper relaxation refers to both efficient and adequate sleep as well as Yoga Nidra & Savasana; "Physical", "Mental", and "Spiritual" relaxation.
  • Proper Diet: The Yogic diet helps to attain a high standard of health, keen intellect and serenity of mind. The yogic diet is vegetarian: pure, simple and natural foods.
  • Positive Thinking & Meditation: We become what we think. Regular practice of meditation opens the door to intuitive knowledge and realms of eternal bliss.

 

Svadhishthana (Sanskrit: स्वाधिष्ठान) or Sacral chakra is located at the root of sexual organs. It is symbolised as a six-petalled lotus. Svadhisthana is represented with a white lotus within which is a crescent moon with six orange petals. The seed mantra is Vam. Svadhisthana Chakra is the emotional centre and is responsible for our likes, dislikes, desires, thoughts and attachments.

 

Session 3: 4 Paths of Moksha & Manipura Chakra Dharan

20 January (Sunday)

9:00 am to 12:00 pm

 

The science of yoga imbibes the complete essence of the way of life. All the paths lead ultimately to the same destination – union with Brahman or God – and the lessons of each of them need to be integrated if true wisdom is to be attained. Everyone can practise certain techniques from each path, balancing and unifying these various approaches. The four main paths of Moksha – Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Raja Yoga and Jnana Yoga.

 

1) Jnana Yoga or Path of Self-Enquiry & Wisdom

20 January (Sunday)

2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

5 Vayu

The ancient yogis discovered that prana (life force energy) could be further subdivided into energetic components called Vayus (winds) : prana vayu (different from prana), apana vayu, samana vayu, udana vayu, and vyana vayu.

Session 6:  Law of Karma and Bhagavad Gita & Ajna Chakra Dharana

26 January (Saturday)

2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

 

“Karma" literally means "deed" or "act", and more broadly names the universal principle of cause and effect, action and reaction. The Law of Karma explains causality through creating a system of actions and reactions throughout a soul's reincarnated lives forming a cycle of rebirth. Hindu scriptures divide karma into three kinds:

  • Sanchita Karma is the accumulated karma.
  • Prarabdha Karma is the accumulated karma that has "ripened" and appears in the present life.
  • Kriyamana or Agami Karma is everything that we produce in the current life. 

Bhagavad Gita
The Bhagavad Gita literally means "Song of the God", a 700-verse scripture written in Sanskrit and is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. A synthesis of knowledge, devotion andaction without desire is given as a prescription for Arjuna's despondence – the same combination is suggested as a way to moksha. Yoga in the Bhagavad Gita refers to the skill of union with the ultimate reality or the Absolute.

 

Ajna (Sanskrit: आज्ञा) or Third-Eye chakra is the subtle centre of energy, believed to be located between the eyebrows. It  is  symbolised  by a lotus with two petals. The seed syllableis AUM. It corresponds to the colours violet, indigo or deep blue. Ajna Chakra is the centre of intuition, responsible for clarity, inner wisdom, insight and clairvoyance.

 

Session 7:  4 Puruṣārtha & 4 Ashrama & Sahasrara Chakra Dharana

27 January (Sunday)

9:00 am to 12:00 pm

 

Puruṣārtha literally means an "object of human pursuit". The four puruṣārthas are Dharma (righteousness, moral values), Artha (prosperity, economic values), Kāma (love, desires, psychological values) and Mokṣha (liberation, spiritual values).

 

Ashrama (āśrama) is one of four age-based life stages discussed in ancient and medieval era Indian texts. The four ashramas are: Brahmacharya (student), Grihastha (householder), Vanaprastha (retired) and Sannyasa (renunciation). The Ashramas system is one facet of the Dharma concept in Hinduism.

 

Sahasrara (Sanskrit: सहस्रार) or Crown chakra is the top-most chakra in the subtle body, located in the crown of the head. The chakra is symbolised by a lotus with 1,000 multi-coloured petals and the diety is Kaala  Bhairava. Sahasrara Chakra is the crown that is just above the head and establishes our connection to the cosmos in addition to theenergetic effect on our entire system.

 

Session 8: Shiva : Science of Soul; Dvaita and Advaita & Chakra System

27 January (Sunday)

2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

 

Shiva is also known as Adiyogi, regarded as the patron god of Yoga, meditation and arts. At the highest level, Shiva is regarded as formless, limitless, transcendent and unchanging absolute Brahman, and the primal Atman (soul, self) of the universe. Shiva has many benevolent and fearsome depictions. The term Shiva also connotes "liberation, final emancipation" and "the auspicious one".

 

Advaita Vedanata

Adi Sankara, an Indian philosopher who consolidated the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta, non-dualistic school of Vedanta, advocates that the pursuit of self-knowledge is spirituality. Advaita refers to its idea that the soul (true Self, Atman) is the same as the highest metaphysical Reality (Brahman).

 

Chakra (wheel or circle) is any centre of subtle body believed to be a psychic-energy centre, connected by energy channels called Nadi. "Shat-Chakras" refer only to the chief six Chakras. Sahasrara Chakra is the chief of all the Chakras and is situated above all the Chakras. The Chakras are considered to be meditation aids, wherein the yogi progresses from lower Chakras to the highest Chakra blossoming in the crown of the head reflecting the journey of spiritual ascent.
