The Art of Sequencing & Movement

Yoga is Dance “ T. Krishnamacharya”

In the west, they usually look at yoga as the flow is a movement based “thing”. However, in India for 1000’s of years yoga has been practiced with strong static postures. Hatha Yogies of Natha or Naga sects has often been known to just practice one static posture for the entire life.

Prathabi Jois himself designed the primary and secondary series of sequence practice which is known as “Ashtanga yoga class” in the west. At Agonda Om Yoga Kutir aspire to give you the most authentic and blissful experience of classical yoga.

During your course you will have the opportunity to learn some of the most fundamental yoga postures practiced by yogis of timeless traditions. As this is a Hatha yoga course, less emphasis is given on the flow of movement, but in this style of yoga, you will learn the art of holding and mastering various postures.

Further to that, they will teach how to align your posture according to prescribed texts and scriptures. If you are looking for a deeper connection to your postures, if you have reached a stage in your practice where you are looking for a more spiritual experience during your postures then Hatha Yoga TTC is the one for you.

They say that Hatha yoga is the first step towards ashtanga yoga, so if you are looking to start yoga for the first time then this course is a more gentle introduction to yoga. Each asana has fundamental integrity, with the proper breath, drishti and movement, they will teach you the fundamental of all major yoga posture.

Abhyasya Vairagyam

Vairagyam often 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.

This is a state of mind that a yogi can enter during the intense practice of yoga. During your course, The Yoga Cave initiative will encourage you to live a wholistic lifestyle that will assist you in experiencing abhyasa vairagyam.
