Harmony Yoga trainings are oriented towards developing a personal Yoga practice informed by the philosophy of classical Yoga with an emphasis on spiritual development.
“The common goal of all Indian sciences is the emancipation of the individual soul (atma or jiva), and Yoga is no exception to this rule. This emancipation is called liberation or moksa. Released from the cycle of rebirth (samsara), the individual soul (atma or jiva) reaches its supreme condition.”
“Liberation is the attainment of a purely spiritual status which is beyond the limitations of space and time, a status of perfect peace, tranquillity and equanimity.”
Sri T.K. Sribhashyam
Krishnamacharya’s Yoga has been described by his students as Sattvic Yoga. The development of Sattva is essential to the process of Yoga.
“The Goal of Yoga is clear, make the mind Satvic and realise the true nature of the Self.”
“Sattva Guna alone corresponding to equilibrium can enable the mind to reflect consciousness. Therefore, the predominance of Sattva is absolutely necessary for spiritual development.”
Sri T.K. Sribhashyam
A regular daily practice is required to bring about a gradual transformation of our whole being. You can begin with a short daily practice of about twenty minutes and this can be gradually increased over time. Lifestyle, attitudinal and dietary changes are required as part of the process.
“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.”
Harmony Yoga Courses
Vinyasa Krama means an intelligent sequence, taken in the right order, in alignment with the principles of Yoga. our courses are to be completed in order as the knowledge and practice progressively builds up.
Viniyoga is mentioned in Yoga Sutra 3:6 as ‘application by stages’. One can move onto the next stage only when the first has been mastered, Yoga proceeds in stages.
“If he has not mounted the previous step, he cannot get on to a higher one.”
