This is one of two Dimensions of Yoga modules, the other being Raja Yoga: eight steps to self Understanding to be completed prior to commencing Yoga Instructor training, as part of the new course, Yoga Instructor in the Satyananda tradition (500 hrs), to be offered for the first time in 2019. The Dimensions of Yoga modules are designed to be standalone and complimentary and may be undertaken in order.

“Purification, firmness, steadiness, patience, lightness, inner perception and non-involvement are the seven sadhanas…  Through shatkarma, purification of the body is achieved;  through asanas, firmness, through pratyahara patience is achieved.  Through pranayama, agility or lightness is achieved;  through meditation, self realisation; and through samadhi, non-involvement, or detachment, and, undoubtedly, liberation are achieved.”

Gheranda Samhita, commentary and translation by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati, Yoga Publications Trust, Munger 2012

Rocklyn Yoga Ashram, operated by Yoga Association of Victoria Inc. as an autonomous entity,
