Features of the workshop

Learn the differences between Hatha Yoga and Patanjali Yoga

The basic text of Yoga Philosophy (Darsana) is Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras but interestingly, this text does not mention any name of any of the practices of Yoga like shuddhi kriyas or asanas or pranayama or mudras or bandhas. These practices of Yoga, which are popular in the world today, and with which Yoga is identified, are all originating from Hatha Yoga. The practices of almost all contemporary schools of Yoga are rooted in Hatha Yoga. Hence, it it is important to know the difference.

Learn about the Therapeutic Effects of Yoga

Though Yoga is essentially a preventive discipline and a lifestyle prescription, people today take to Yoga mostly because of the therapeutic efficacy of its practices. These therapeutic effects of the practices find mention in Hatha Yoga texts. Hence, it is essential to understand these Texts.

Feel the Healing Effects of Yoga

The popularity of Yoga is increasing. The meaning and purpose, the original intent and content, and the very essence of Yoga may get disfigured and distorted. In a way, this leads to Yoga being exaggeratedly being prescribed as a panacea for ‘all’ the ills of human life – personal and social, physical and mental – for all age groups, all genders, all callings and professions. Hence, it is necessary to set right our perspective about Yoga. 

Be Familiar with the different Hatha Yoga Texts

There are many texts for Hatha Yoga out of which, Hatha Pradipika and Gheranda Samhita are the two with which most yoga practitioners are with. But there are several other texts which contain immeasurable richness and fine nuances as regards to yoga practices. Learning these, enhances our knowledge and helps build a stronger foundation of our practices
