‘A person without self-discipline cannot attain perfection in Yoga.’
Commentary on Yoga Sutras 2:1
Harmony Yoga offer in depth training in the Yoga of Sri T. Krishnamacharya as received from his direct students.
The primary focus is on developing your personal practice.
Practitioner training is therefore a first requirement and assessed competence must be demonstrated before you may apply for recognition as a teacher.
There are four training modules to complete over a two year period. All other training is delivered through personal training. This allows you to develop at your own pace and rhythm and adjust and adapt your practice to your personal life situation. It is also in alignment with traditional approach to teaching individually.
Subjects covered are:
Vinyasa Krama Yoga – Hatha Yoga (asana, pranayama, mudra and bandha).
Hatha Yoga Pradipika – the classic text on Hatha Yoga.
Samkhya – the Philosophy of Sage Kapila that provides the theoretical basis of Yoga.
Patanjala Yoga-darsana – Yoga Sutras of Patanajali, the practical application of Samhkya.
Vedanta -Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita – the classic Yoga Sastra
Yoga Chikitsa – the methods used by Yoga practitioners to maintain independent health.
Dietary Discipline in Yoga.
Anatomy & Physiology for Yoga – taught by Dr Norah Nelson
Ayurveda for Yoga practitioners – Vedic healing and health

“With two to three hours of daily practice following all the rules and restrictions, one begins to see appropriate benefits well within a year.”
Sri T. Krishnamacharya
“A Yoga student must have their own practice. You won’t make progress if you don’t practice at home.”
