Hatha yoga is a practice which develops our physical and mental potential. From the steadiness of the postures (asanas) we can go inwards and liberate the hidden power of the body, breath and mind. This course will ensure a strong foundational practice of the 12 basic asanas. From this foundation the mind will be focused through breath control and inner concentration. Finally the body, breath and mind are all focused giving incredible power through the practice.

This course is suitable for those wishing to understand the practice on a deeper level.
Only in English (no translation into French).

This course will:

  • Improve your asana practice through understanding and practice of the essential aspects of the 12 basic postures.
  • Identify through felt sensation the main nerve stimulation (pressure points or stretching) of the 12 basic asanas.
  • Guide the breath under ones conscious control, and direct the mind into the body, through breath, to increase the depth and benefits of the asanas
  • Allow us to feel how the breath changes our inner sensation in each of the asanas
  • Give maximum benefits from the postures through proper practice

Recommended reading: « Hatha Yoga » by Swami Sivananda and “The Complete Illustrated Book of Yoga” by Swami Vishnudevananda.
