This module focuses on Hatha Yoga sadhana (personal practice) with a unique mix of practical immersion and theory. It is true to the classic texts of Hatha Yoga Pradipika and Gheranda Samhita and gives a serious introduction to chakras, prana and nadis, with a comprehensive range of asana, shatkarma, pranayama and meditation practices. Everything is presented through the lens of Hatha Yoga, energy and transformation. 

A week long residential intensive is followed by 11 weeks of home practice and study to give a solid foundation and lived experience of the essence of Hatha Yoga and a series of essential yoga tools for living.

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 complementary and may be undertaken in either 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
