Ancient holistic approach to Yog Chikitsa

Yoga therapy, or Yog Chikitsa, is not a modern word, but it is as ancient as yoga. There are often certain styles of yoga misleadingly branded as complete yoga. This could be for marketing purposes or to teach only a certain style of yoga asana sequence.

The style at Paramanand Institute is a traditional yoga which is in a deeper sense complete and authentic, and derives from ancient yoga scriptures as old as 10,000 years in Sanskrit taught in English. You will learn basic secrets from these scriptures which cover physical, mental, and emotional and energy levels.

Objective and benefits

Yoga therapy is an ancient science of healing and helping mankind to be totally healthy and happy. This complete scientific discipline helps the union of body, mind, senses, heart and ultimate energy. After completion of this yoga therapy teacher's training certification, you will become a certified yoga therapist accredited by the International Yoga Association.

Students will be able to first help themselves, then also help others. They will gain knowledge, promote positive health, and bring harmony and peace in the society. Masters with proven track records guide and teach this ancient yogic science to aspirants to become successful yoga therapists.

    Review by Tmimi Jaylane from Indonesia

    CONS Cons: My experience at paramamand was not as good as expected. Some classes as Rama's and Divya's were really good, they are both helpfull and excellent teachers. About the rest of the training, it was disappointing. The bedrooms and bathrooms were dirty, the meals were basics, repetitive and unhealthy ( too much oil, carb and no fruit). The organization was also a problem : the schedule is always changed . I understand that we experienced the ashram's life but the staff really keep the level at its minimum and it is difficult to get a proper training in these conditions. As a conclusion , i don't recommend it.

    The best teachers!

    CONS Cons: The communication in the organisation needs to be improved. Sometimes teachers don't show up, no one knows if we have class yes/no. Facilities are very very very basic and there are many things which needs to be fixed (and easily can, but it just doesn't happen).

    PROS Pros: The teachers and the guru are awesome, they are so skilled and nice! The employees would do anything to make you feel at home. I liked the excursions we did.

    "Paramanand is not an ordinary school where one enrols to receive a certificate that entitles him or her to teach. Paramanand is an Ashram for the life of the seeker. Guruji is extraordinary, under his guidance and blessings one cannot help but transcend this mundane life of ordinary teachings to receive the ultimate and eternal knowledge. No words can express my gratitude to Guruji who has kindly blessed by School with his presence and supported me to lead my students into a new era of knowledge , love, bliss ,higher consciousness, and divinity."

    "It was an amazing experience to be among about one crore devotees and monks during the final sahi snan at the mokshdayini Kshipra river in ancient temple town Ujjain. Mahakaal called me and I along with an office colleague went there. It was an impromptu decision. I took the holy dip at around 3.30 am along with lakhs that included people from age groups of 8 to 80. What a fantastic feeling! ! And after taking dip , we walked along side the river and crossed one after another ghats while taking snaps. Also took photos of Naga sadhus. Meanwhile, my colleague lost in the meelee. However , I traced him after some time.. Again, took holi dip at Narsingh ghat in the morning. Also visited Bhukimata & Ram ghat. It was a life-long memory. It could not be possible without the grace of Lord Mahakaleshwar. Jai Mahakaal."

    "Paramanand Institute is the best place to do the inner journey to find out our true nature and experience the true Yoga=union. It is an Ashram, it is an Institute but it is also a family where you can grow up and where you can share experiences with other people. All this is possible for the grace of Guru ji, always present, always attentive, always available. A real Guru. Thank you!"

  • Review by Gulumser Ozgul from Germany

    "Back in my hometown in my old life I feel that nothing is like I left it before. I am transformed.In June 2014 I went to Italy for a 5 days Yoga course. There I met my Yoga teacher Maa Lakshmi (Lise Baronet). Having a course with her I realized that there is something very special and unique about her way of Yoga and Yoga teachings. I found out that she was at the Paramanand Yoga Ashram in Indore.I decided that I needed to go there for a 500 hours Yoga Therapy Teachers Training Course in December 2014. I am a very much beginner in Yoga. I thought I will learn some postures that may help against musculoskeletal pain and I will benefit with more physical fitness.Paramanand Ashram taught me the ancient deep and pure path of yoga. It is a tight syllabus, and you need work hardly to go through. In this two month of my stay, there was a lot of doubt, anger, hesitation, disbelief, neglect and fighting inside me. Under the guidance of Guruji, trough practice and reflection I could move from darkness to light (tamasoma jotirgamaya). I feel my life is transformed.I wanted to learn some postures to achieve some physical fitness and additionally to have a certificate from an internationally approved Yoga Institute. Of cause I am a yoga therapy teacher now, but further than that, I am on the yoga path, I got keys to experience deep meditation, to observe and to control my own mind, to live a life in my own peace.I feel deep gratitude. I want to thank Guruji for his kind, patient, loving and caring guidance. Hari OM Maa Gita Anand. "

    "How to talk about a place that feels like my own home but with words full of thankfulness and happiness?I first came to the ashram in 2013 and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Really transforming.Even though I was a practicing yoga teacher before coming, I found an incredible source of knowledge and inspiration in every teacher. Guruji helped me to find the real roots of yoga and the true meaning of meditation. Meditation sessions with him were enlightening. Without any doubt my yoga and life have benefited since my fist visit.This is the second time i am in "my" Ashram, and the experiences are different but as profound as the first.I highly recommend to every yoga aspirant, who wishes to visit India to study in Paramananda Institute...Nothing will be the same after that experience.
