“Asanas are not just physical exercise.” — Swami Vishnudevananda
 

Swami Vishnudevananda taught that hatha yoga leads to samadhi (super conscious state) through the control of prana, the life force. In this course, designed for yoga teachers and serious practitioners who want to deepen their practice, you will explore the effect of the conscious practice of the 12 Sivananda Yoga postures on the physical, astral, and causal bodies. Come experience how the practice naturally brings asana to pranayama (breath), to pratyahara (sense withdrawal), to dharana (concentration), to dhyana (meditation), and finally to the real Self.
