During your course, you will learn

  • The art of sequencing and movement
  • Yoga is dance "T. Krishnamacharya"

In the west yoga is usually looked at as a flow or movement-based "thing". However, in India for 1000s of years, yoga has been practiced with strong static postures. Hatha yogis of timeless Natha or Naga traditions have often been known to just practice one static posture for the entire life. Prathabi Jois himself designed the primary and secondary series of sequence, which is known as "Ashtanga yoga class" in the west. At Agonda Om Yoga Kutir (the ashram in Goa), The Yoga Cave Initiative aspires to give you the most authentic and blissful experience of classical yoga.

During your course, you will explore how to thread one posture to another posture. The art of moving from one posture to another is known as "Vinyasa". They will teach you the art of Vinyasa and how to thread your postures to create sequences in a way where your practice of yoga becomes like a dance or moving meditation. This art will enable you to formulate your own sequence in a safe and systematic manner.

"Sequential creative movements that interlink postures to form a continuous flow; It creates a “movement meditation" that reveals all forms as being impermanent and for this reason are not held on to” - Gregor Maehale.

Abhyasya Vairagyam

Vairagyam often is referred to as a state of renunciation or detachment that one enters when they participate in intense spiritual austerities like yoga, fasting, and ecstatic dancing. In Patanjali yoga sutra, it has been stated that the key to enter the state of Samadhi through yoga is to experience "Abhayasa Vairagyam".

This is a state of mind that a yogi can enter during the intense practice of yoga. During your course, they will encourage you to live a holistic lifestyle that will assist you in experiencing abhyasa vairagyam. They will teach you how to align and connect breath (Ujjayi), and movement to create a practice that will transform your current yoga practice to the next level.

Pranayama and meditation

Every morning your day will start with some form of pranayama, meditation, or Satsang. They will explore all common as well as not so common pranayamas and meditation techniques like Kapalabhati, Ujjayi breath, Nadi Shodhana. You will often chant Sanskrit mantras and om chanting in the morning.
