Sound vibrations that permeate every cell of your being and allow your mind to dissolve and repose. Mantras are repetitive sounds used to penetrate the depths of the unconscious mind and adjust the vibration of all aspects of your being. Mantras are vibrated through chanting aloud, mental practice, or by listening to them. The experience of how sound vibrations effect your being is Naad yoga.
The Sanskrit word ‘mudra’ is translated as ‘gesture’ or ‘attitude’. Mudra can be described as psychic, emotional, devotional and aesthetic gestures or attitudes. Yogis have experienced mudras as attitude of energy flow, intended to link individual pranic force with the universal or cosmic force.
Hatha Yoga, as described in the early yoga Upanishads was made up of the shatkarma and is a very precise and systematic science. Shat means ‘six’ and karma means ‘action’. The shatkarma consist of six groups of purification practices. The aim of hatha yoga and therefore of the shatkarma is to create harmony between the two major pranic flows, ida and pingala thereby attaining physical and mental purification and balance.
(Yoga therapy is) the use of the techniques of Yoga to create, stimulate, and maintain an optimum state of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. Yoga therapy consists of the application of yogic principles, methods, and techniques to specific human ailments.
Yoga philosophy is one of the six major orthodox schools of Hinduism. Ancient, medieval and most modern literature often refers to the Yoga school of Hinduism simply as Yoga. It is closely related to the Samkhya school of Hinduism. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is a key text of the Yoga school of Hinduism.
The word pranayama is a compound of two words’ Prana’ meaning ‘life force’ or ‘vital energy’ and yama meaning “to regulate”or “to control” pranayama is the yogic science of balancing and regulating vital energy through the skillful manipulation of breath.
Traditionally, bandhas were classified as part of mudras, and were handed down by words of mouth from guru to disciple. The hatha yoga pradipika deals with bandhas and mudras together and the ancient tantric texts also make no distinction between the two.
Introduction to bandha
Yoga is a journey toward self-awareness. On this journey, relaxation skills help us gather the disparate energy of the body and the mind and focus them internally. Then mental distraction intrudes with less intensity and a sense of inner flexibility and calmness develops. Relaxation also prepares the personality for a still more interior practice. Through meditation, we can safely enter the quiet and inward place of the mind & heart.
Beneath the ups and downs of everyday life there is a profound state of balance. By resting the brief period in that state we can create a resilient and stable mind even in the face of stress. That’s way each of us, on a deep level, craves relaxation which revives our confidence and reawakens a sense of self-control. Yoga relaxation exercises quite the sense and lead us beneath the restless surface of the mind. Through relaxation we restore a sense of inner harmony.
Teaching method comprises the principles and methods used by teachers to enable student learning. These strategies are determined partly on subject matter to be taught and partly by the nature of the learner. It is the primary role of teachers to pass knowledge and information onto their students.
All classes are mandatory only in case of an emergency or illness one can take leave with respected teacher permission. Uninformed leaves won’t be accepted and this will leave a bad impression on student monthly performance.
A high degree of self-motivation is required for all aspects of the course. The practice and especially the teaching of yoga demand a high degree of self-discipline and purity. To ensure the success of the program, participants are required to attend all spirituals activities, meditation sessions, lectures and asana classes. Meat, fish, eggs, black tea, coffee, alcohol, tobacco, drugs and nudity are prohibited during the course as they are counterproductive to the yoga practice. Participants who do not comply with the school rules may be dismissed from the course.
Smoking and alcohol are strictly prohibited in the school. If you are having a fast any day, you have to inform the kitchen manager for avoiding food waste. Always make discipline, respect teachers and follow all rules. Always be on time. If you are late means you will not be permitted to join the class. Clear your books of account before departure from Himalayan Yoga Association. Before departure return your books, maps or any goods which you borrowed. Himalayan Yoga Association provides accommodation for a student who joins the yoga course. So any friends or relatives will not be included in the accommodation.

Himalayan Yoga Association is located near Deecon Valley in the village of Ghughtayni Talli, Ward No-5, Upper Tapovan in Lakshman Jhula, Rishikesh (‘the world capital of yoga’) on the bank of the holy river Ganga.
This location is surrounded by the Himalayas, natural waterfalls, all the well-known ashrams, temples, beach camps, adventure activities, and wild life activities which are nearby to the school which will always be a great opportunity for our beloved students to enjoy.
They can choose to visit the ashrams to see the pure and holy living style, devotion towards god, faith and believe in guru, respecting everything and every being, living with basic needs, living with laws of nature which will definitely help them to connect with their real self which is lost in the materialistic world. Besides this, adventure lovers can indulge themselves in adventure activities to test their adventure skills while going through the course.
During the training course, students are served three meals per day. The food served is hygienically prepared, nutritious, and healthy. Himalayan Yoga Ashram puts special emphasis over yogi food for all its students. Food provided at the center is 100% vegetarian but not vegan. This, however, can be arranged, provided that you inform the chef about it well in advance.
There will be three vegetarian meals served per day (and a cup of chai during our tea breaks) for the duration of the course. The meals are unlimited. Generally, you’ll get a plate of food with all of the various vegetarian Indian dishes appropriate for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (according to a yogic diet.).
We always make a surplus of food for our students, which is usually placed on the dinner tables for our students to grab from if they want more of a particular dish. You can also always feel free to talk to our kitchen staff if you’d like your meals prepared a certain way or if you’d like extra food.
Indira Gandhi International Airport
Transfer available for additional US$75 per person
The closest and most convenient airport for you is to fly to Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL). If you are visiting India for the first time, then it is better for you to take a flight to Dehradun Airport (DED), and from Dehradun is a 30 minutes drive by car, so you save a hustle.
Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) to Rishikesh by car is a 6-hour journey. Himalayan Yoga Association have a transportation package for 150 USD which will cover your airport pick-up, transfer from Delhi to Rishikesh (by car) and after completion of the course transfer back from Rishikesh to Delhi. One way transportation i.e. Delhi airport to Rishikesh can also be availed for 75 USD.
In case your flight arrives late night and you want to stay overnight in Delhi, airport pick-up cost will be 25 USD and a reasonably good accommodation at a hotel in Delhi can be arranged for 40 or 50 USD. Himalayan yoga Association travel arrangements are executed under the supervision of professionals and they are always ready with a back-up plan, in case of emergencies.
Another good option is to travel by train (airport to New Delhi train station by car, then by train to Haridwar and from Haridwar to Rishikesh by car).
Travel by bus is quite cheap but a bit inconvenient for first time visitors. Cheap hotels can also be found in Delhi (Main Bazar, Paharganj area) for 10 to 20 USD. The journey from Delhi Airport to Paharganj can be done by airport metro express in less than 20 minutes and it costs less than 2 USD.
If you opt to use public transportation to reach the school, please contact the school upon arriving in Rishikesh, so they can help you with directions for walking a short distance to the school.
It is safe to travel alone to Rishikesh, many tourists do it. However, it might be a bit challenging to travel by local buses or trains sometimes if you have never been to India before, as it is very different from other parts of the world.
