Practice

D. Hatha Yoga Asanas

300 hour students will learn more than 100 attractive traditional and dynamic Hatha yoga Asana poses. Every morning 2 hour Hatha,Vinyasa,Partner yoga etc. and evening 2 hours AshtangaVinyasa and an hour of stretching adjustment and alignment classes with detail technique by our experienced teachers. E. Vinyasa Yoga – With all details.


Vinyasa Flow yoga is called such because of the fluid balance between the breath flow and body movement. ‘Vinyasa’ means breath-synchronized motion and this style of yoga places as much emphasis on the yoga postures as on the transition between the asanas—creating a dynamic, flowing yoga class that transforms into a playful dance between body and breath. Vinyasa is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes—but all styles of Vinyasa incorporate the same quality of movement with breath—whether a more dynamic Power Vinyasa class, or a Gentle Flow yoga.
Vinyasa allows the teacher a lot of variety and space for creativity, and the opportunity to develop their own personal voice and style as a teacher. There are no standard sequences to be followed or taught but will almost always include many variations of sun salutations. Expect lots of dynamic movement, not just static stretching. This style of asana evolves into a meditation in motion, moving with mindfulness and allowing the body to become active and the mind to quiet and focus.

Types of Meditation– Scientists usually classify all types of meditation, depending on the way they focus attention, into two categories: Focused Attention and Open Monitoring. I’d like to propose a third: Effortless Presence. Focused attention meditation

Focusing the attention on a single object during the whole meditation session. This object may be the breath, a mantra, visualization, part of the body, external object, etc. As the practitioner advances, his ability to keep the flow of attention in the chosen object gets stronger, and distractions become less common and short-lived. Both the depth and steadiness of his attention are developed. Examples of these are: Samatha (Buddhist meditation), some forms of Zazen, Loving Kindness Meditation, Chakra Meditation, Kundalini Meditation, Sound Meditation, Mantra Meditation, Pranayama etc… Yoga Meditations

OM yogic meditationsThere is not one type of meditation which is “Yogic Meditation”, so here it is meant the several meditation types taught in the yoga tradition. Yoga means “union”. Tradition goes as far as 1700 B.C, and has as its highest goal spiritual purification and Self-Knowledge. Classical Yoga divides the practice into rules of conduct (yamas and niyamas), physical postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), and contemplative practices of meditation (pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, samadhi). How to do it

Here are some types of meditation practiced in Yoga. The most common and universal one is the “third eye meditation”.
Third Eye Meditation — focusing the attention on the “spot between the eyebrows” (called by some “the third eye” or “ajna chakra”). The attention is constantly redirected to this point, as a means to silence the mind. By time the “silent gaps” between thoughts get wider and deeper. Sometimes this is accompanied by physically “looking”, with eyes closed, towards that spot.

Chakra Meditation – the practitioner focuses on one of the seven chakras of the body (“centers of energy”), typically doing some visualizations and chanting a specific mantra for each chakra (lam, vam, ram, yam, ham, om). Most commonly it is done on the heart chackra, third eye, and crown chackra. Gazing Meditation (Trataka) – fixing the gaze on an external object, typically a candle, image or a symbol (yantras). It is done with eyes open, and then with eyes closed, to train both the concentration and visualization powers of the mind. After closing the eyes, you should still keep the image of the object in your “mind’s eye”.

Kundalini Meditation – this is a very complex system of practice. The goal is the awakening of the “kundalini energy” which lies dormant on the base of the spine, the development of several psychic centers in the body, and, finally, enlightenment. There are several dangers associated with this practice, and it should not be attempted without the guidance of a qualified yogi.
Kriya Yoga – is a set of energization, breathing, and meditation exercises taught by Paramahamsa Yogananda. This is more suited for those who have a devotional temperament, and are seeking the spiritual aspects of meditation.

Sound Meditation (Nada Yoga) – focusing on sound. Starts with meditation on “external sounds”, such as calming ambient music (like Native American flute music), whereby the student focuses all his attention on just hearing, as a help to quieten and collect the mind. By time the practice evolves to hearing the “internal sounds” of the body and mind. The ultimate goal is to hear the “Ultimate Sound” (para nada), which is a sound without vibration, and that manifests as “OM”.

Anatomy & Physiology of Practice

1. Includes both human physical anatomy and physiology (bodily systems, organs, etc.) and energy anatomy and physiology (chakras, nadis, etc). Includes both the study of the subject and application of its principles to yoga practice (benefits, contraindications, healthy movement patterns).
