The systematic and regular practice of classical asanas, pranayama, kriyas, mudras, bandhas, and deeper relaxation techniques will help to remove internal blockages and is a deep internal cleansing process. The three main aspects covered by the course are physical, pranic, and mental.
The physical aspect of the course aims to teach different advance asanas on a deeper level, incorporating special sequences and different styes and variations of asanas. Special techniques will be taught that allow the performance of complex asanas in a simple way.
Asanas not only increase physical fitness and flexibility of the body, but also help overcome physical blockages such as tension and stiffness of muscles. Each student will be expected to participate in daily practice (including morning practice on weekends).
The second part of the course will develop the student’s deeper practice on a pranic level.

Advanced techniques of asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, as well as various kriyas for cleansing the internal organs, are the special contribution of this course.
Finally, the course will also look at the mind through different ancient Tantric meditation and the techniques of Kriya yoga meditation, which help cleanse and strengthen the manomaya kosha. You will also practice mantra chanting, selected part of yoga philosophy, and basic and advanced yoga Nidra.
