Hatha yoga asana’s (physical postures)

The very meaning of Hatha (Hata) yoga means “challenge oneself”. In Hatha yoga, holding the poses for a longer period attains steadiness of the body and mind, freedom from disease, and a lightness of the limbs.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is a concise definition of yoga asanas "Sthiram Sukham asana" meaning that "positions which are comfortable and steady" asanas holding for a longer period will increase health, longevity, open energy centers, and psychic centers.

The perfection of asanas gives a stable foundation for the exploration of body, breath, mind, and beyond. Hatha yogis down the ages found developing control over the body through asana. The mind will be controlled and stabilized. Hence, the practice of asana is foremost in Hatha yoga.

Techniques that will be covered include intoning the sounds, third eye, Nadabrahma, Osho Kundalini, chakra sounds, chakra breathing, Gauri Shankara, relaxing body and mind, conscious sleeping and dreaming, Vipassana, and Zazen.

The entire eight Limbs of the Patanjali system are also sometimes referred to as Dhyana or the meditative path, although strictly speaking, only the last four limbs constitute meditation Pratyahara, Dhyana, Dharana, and Samādhi.

The preceding steps are only to prepare the body and mind for meditation. Meditation starts by being separating the mind, by being a witness. That is the only way of separating ourselves from anything.

Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most people accumulated stress in the body-mind makes that difficult. Before you can hope to access your inner powerhouse of consciousness, you need to let go of your tensions.

Active Meditations have been scientifically designed by Osho for contemporary man. The activity itself creates the situation in which passivity happens.

Patanjali yoga sutras (60 hours) 10.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali succinctly outlines the art and science of yoga meditation for self-realization. It is a process of systematically encountering, examining, and transcending each of the various gross and subtle levels of false identity in the mind field until the jewel of the true self comes shining through.

When Patanjali codified or compiled the Yoga Sutras, it was not that a new system was created, but rather, the ancient practices were summarized in an extremely organized and scientific way.

Back bending and hip opening classes (20 hours) 12.30 p.m. to 1.30 p.m.

Back bending is an integral part of any yoga practice. Back bending postures help to increase lung capacity, prevent arthritis, removes depression, strengthen and align the spine.

Hip opening in yoga help to keep the pelvis and hips in proper alignment which also prevents strain and tightness in the pelvis. Hip opening postures help to come out from stress and anxiety.

Back bending and hip opening asanas help the practitioner to gain confidence in advance Hatha yoga and Ashtanga yoga postures.
