Join AryaMarga Yoga in the scenic region of Chaugan for an intensive yoga psychology or Manasik yoga program. This 200-hour certification program culminates in the awarding of the Manasik yoga kriyakar or yoga psychology novice certification. This program will deepen your knowledge on yoga psychology, its prognostic and therapeutic techniques, and more!
The accommodation will be at the institute in Bir, Himachal Pradesh. It’s nestled in the field and forest, offering a warm welcome to tourists and ensuring quality and comfort. Twin-sharing or private accommodation will be provided for all the participants.
AryaMarga Yoga has taken accountability for what it believes to be a restructuring of the existing teacher training courses and through its highly intense curriculum which delivers an unadulterated yogic experience. Its aim is to recreate the style and content of teaching as taught by the gurus of the ancient lineage of Anuttara yoga, a combination of the Hatha-Laya and Kundalini yogas.
This one-month yoga psychology or Manasik yoga program is primarily designed to introduce those interested in psychology and associated counseling to the efficacious and humane principles of integral wellness, towards personally attaining states of psychological evolution, and to introduce methods of counseling that will promote psychological homoeostasis among their patients.
Students who’ve undergone a 200-hour or 500-hour training will be preferred as the teachings of this course are intensive and prior foundational practice of yoga is required to fully integrate such teachings.
Harking back to the yoga of discriminative numeration or Samkhya yoga, the diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic techniques of yoga psychology are based on the understanding of the absolute and moment to moment uniqueness of each individual.
Non-abstract and parametrical, yoga psychology proposes a layered perspective of personality, such personality seen as being composed of multiple co-dependent levels, comprised of interacting matrices of cognition, affectivity, and conation, which are termed jnana, kriya, and iccha shaktis respectively in yoga psychology.
Further, physiological factors, on the basis of homoeostasis, are also included as one of the interacting matrix structures, throughout the discovery and treatment period. By mapping these matrices and their link factors, you will arrive at the unique integral personality matrix, without typecasting people into categories.
In keeping with the unique personality of each individual, the prognostic and therapeutic techniques in yoga psychology are uniquely tailored to suit such unique personalities.
The interacting matrices are not operational without the sensory environment, which acts as stimulus, and the associated interaction between the layered matrices of personality and perceived environmental factors is intensively covered in yoga psychology as most psychological imbalances find their root in the quality and type of this interaction.
In fact, it is by manipulating the subject-object junctional experience that yoga psychology works its most effective cures.
Contemporary psychology and its associated psychotherapeutic techniques categorize unique human personalities into neat boxes formed of pre-conceived notions, fancifully projected as axioms, by a psychiatric community constantly seeking the validation of psychology as a precise natural science.
The hectic attempts to verifiably predict human mental processes through axiomatic structures have led to the oversimplification of the immensely sophisticated and subtle human personality. Unbeknown to psychiatrists but well-known to most others, humans are neither rats nor computers, so rat behaviorism and game theory cannot really help map the human mental process, as it is the observer of the rat experiment, not the rat, and the creator of the computer program, not the program, that is under study in psychology.
The prognostic effectiveness of yoga psychology arises from the individual yogic psychologist’s skill at arriving at a correct diagnosis of the unique integral personality matrix, using the evaluative and testing methods available in the yoga psychology toolkit. Therapy is then administered through adjusting the imbalanced matrices and strengthening or re-associating weak or dissonant link factors.

Please book your flight to arrive at Gaggal Airport (DHM).
From Delhi, Bir is about 12 to 14 hours by bus. From the Interstate Bus Terminal (ISBT), take a bus to Baijnath. There are two overnight buses from Delhi to Baijnath, both of which depart mid-evening and arrive early the following morning. From Pathankot and Chakki Bank, board any bus heading for Dharamshala, Kangra, Palampur, Baijnath, Mandi, Manali, or Shimla.
For Dharamshala and Baijnath, refer to the following directions: from Dharamshala, Bir is about four or five hours by bus, depending on the timing of buses and number of connections. There are three ways to travel from Dharamshala to Bir by bus. There are two daily direct buses to Bir Road and Upper Bir leaving at 6:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. from the bus station in (lower) Dharamshala (about four hours).
Alternatively, you can take a direct bus from Dharamshala to Baijnath where you can continue onward to Bir either by local bus or by taxi. If the timing of direct buses to Bir or Baijnath will not work for you, the last resort options are these: either take a bus to Palampur and change there for any other bus onward to Baijnath or further east, or just hop on any bus heading east from Dharamshala, including those to Jogindernagar, Mandi, Manali, or Shimla, and ask the driver or conductor to drop you off at Bir Road. If you get to Chauntra or Jogindernagar, you’ve gone too far).
This can take from three to five hours. If your bus stops at Baijnath, you'll have the option of traveling the last leg to Bir (20 to 30 minutes) either by bus or by taxi (about INR 250). If you choose to go by bus, there are two options. You can take one of the direct buses from Baijnath to Bir (which leaves about every half hour or so and go all the way to Upper Bir) or any bus heading east from Baijnath (such as Jogindernagar, Mandi, Manali, or Shimla) and ask the driver or conductor to drop you off at Bir Road.
Take a train to Pathankot and take a bus or taxi onward to Bir. The most common way to travel to Bir is by train from Delhi (or wherever your origin may be) to Pathankot or Chakki Bank (two neighboring train stations in the Punjab, either of which is fine) and then make the rest of the journey to Bir by bus (six to eight hours) or taxi (four to five hours).
Take a train to Pathankot and onward to Bir. It is also possible to go almost all the way to Bir by train if you have considerable patience and/or a profound love for trains. There is a charming little toy train that leaves every morning from Pathankot to Ahju, just three kilometers from Bir (below the Bir Road intersection).
Most overnight trains from Delhi (when running on time) reach Pathankot approximately an hour before the toy train leaves, so the connection is doable unless your train from Delhi is quite late (which, of course, is always a possibility, though less likely on Rajdhani and Shatabdi express trains).
Taxi is the fastest and most convenient way of getting to Bir from Pathankot or Dharamshala, but it is also by far the most expensive and the least eco-friendly. So if you come by car, please consider sharing the ride with others.
