Logo Default
01 Hatha yoga (proper alignment, adjustment & modification)
Hatha Yoga

“Ha” – stands for Sun (active, hot, masculine), and “Tha” – stands for Moon (passive, cool, feminine, receptive). It is commonly translated as yoga which brings harmony between the two opposite forces in our body for healthy living. It is a holistic yogic path that includes postures (asanas), purification procedures (kriyas), gestures (mudras), breathing (pranayama), and meditation (dhyana)..

02 Vinyasa Flow
Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa Flow Yoga provides dynamic yoga classes combining movement and breath to strengthen the body and calm the mind.

03 Patanjali yoga sutra and history
Patanjali Yogasutra

From the Indian perspective, Yoga is the name of one of the six philosophical schools. It forms part of the corpus of sutra literature. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali we teach in our 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh is a foundational text of Yoga.

04 Anatomy and physiology of yogic practice
Yoga Anatomy

We will analyze different approaches to the body at theoretical and practical levels to create a safe environment for the practitioners, with or without a specific injury to the body.

05 Meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques)
Meditation & Pranayama

“Prana” means the essence of life itself, the vital energy in each one of us, and every breath we inhale. “Aayaama” is the Sanskrit term for expansion. Pranayama is the exercise of regulating your breathing patterns to increase your lung capacity and enable the provision of an overall healthy body and tranquil mind.

06 Karma yoga & Kriyas (cleansing process)
Karma Yoga

Karma means action, and actions define our lives. Be aware of your actions because good ones are the key to happiness. What you do will come back to you. Karma yoga is an excellent part of yoga that teaches us the importance of good actions. Kriya yoga is a cleansing process. There are different kinds: Neti, Dhouti, Trataka, Nauli, Kunjal, Vasti, and Kapalbhati.

07 Self-practice /Correction classes
Self Study

Self-practice means gaining our own experience, and this is key. It helps you understand the knowledge you have learned. You realize what you understand or not, and accordingly, you can move further in your practice. Discuss with your teacher what is next in your practice, or if you gain enough experience and confidence, you feel what is the next level for you in your practice.

08 Chanting mantras
Mantra chanting

Mantra chanting is a part of bhakti (devotion) yoga. It is a part of any asana class at Hatha Yoga World. A simple chantlike “OM Shanti Shanti Shanti” is a powerful way to end a class.
