Online Course: Hatha Yoga Inspirations
Swami Sivadasananda, Yoga Acharya
Tuesdays, 20 October – 10 November 2020
6 pm – 7.30 pm, Central European Time (CET)
Hatha Yoga Inspirations
This online course combines 30 minutes study of scriptural study with 60 minutes of simple practice of asana and pranayama.
The theory part will focus on connecting the scriptural verse with the Anatomy of Hatha Yoga. You will be able to ask questions via chat or over the microphone.
The practice part will focus on either one asana sequence or one pranayama exercise, supported and balanced by other elements of the basic Sivananda class.
The Hatha Yoga Pradipika on Asanas
“Asanas are treated in the first place as they form the first stage of Hatha Yoga. Asanas that make one firm, free from diseases and light of limb.”
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali on Asana
“Posture is mastered by releasing tension and meditation on the Unlimited.”
The Hatha Yoga Pradipika on Pranayama
“When the breath wanders, i.e., is irregular, the mind is also unsteady. But when the breath is still, so is the mind, and the yogi lives long. So one should retrain the breath.”
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali on Pranayama
“Pranayama is regulated by place, time and number, and becomes progressively prolonged and subtle.”
The course will be taught in English and translated simultaneously into German, French and Spanish.
Participation fee: 39 € for the whole course
As all our current online activities, the programme will also be taught through zoom.
The daily programme with zoom links will be sent 24 hours in advance.
