The Art of Sequencing & Movement
Yoga is Dance “ T. Krishnamacharya”
We in the west usually look at yoga as a flow or movement based “thing”. However, in India for 1000’s of years yoga has been practiced with strong static postures. Hatha Yogies 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(our ashram in goa) we aspire 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”. We 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.
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. 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 as state of mind that a yogi can enter during intense practice of yoga. During your course we will encourage you to live a wholistic lifestyle that will assist you in experiencing abhyasa vairagyam. We will teach you how to align and connect, breath(Ujjai) and movement to create a practice that will transform your current yoga practice to the next level.
Pranayama & Meditation
Every morning your day will start with some form of pranayama, meditation or satsang. We will explore all common as well as not so common pranayamas and meditation techniques like Kapalabhati, Ujjai Breath, Nadi Shodhana. We will often chant Sanskrit mantras and Om chanting in the morning.
Apart from asana(postures of the physical practice of yoga) you will also learn the history and philosophy of yoga including but not restricted to:
Samadhi and Sadhan pada – through story telling and critical analysis we will explore this ancient text. Every class will be interactive and full of factual information.

We will explore the concepts of purusha and prakriti, the seer, the sakshi, advaita and the programming of the mind and how to connect to our ancient self. We will also do a brief comparative study of western ideology and culture compared vedic philosophy and cotemporary Indian culture.
Yama, Niyama, pranayama, asana, prathyahara, Dhyana, dharana, samadhi: with interactive discussion we will explore “Ashtanga” and how it is different from your 90 min primary series they are teaching down the gym!
