Which style of yoga do we teach in our 200-hour yoga certification?
The Patanjali Institute teaches the traditional, classical form of yoga as was described in the ancient scriptures. Our yoga teacher training course also covers the yogic lifestyle and philosophy to give students a better, more rounded foundation on which to base their yogic practice.
This ancient form of yoga is an holistic approach devised by Swami Vivekananda Yoga, Anusandhana Samsthana (S-VYAS) at the Yoga University in Bangalore, India. The movements are slow, deliberate, and meditative, which bring strength, awareness, flexibility, and viability to the body while teaching proper breathing and calming the mind. After each stimulation, there is a relaxation phase for the body and mind to regroup and expand in essence, to grow.
We follow two groups of big teachers. The first are the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars; the second are Buddha, Patanjali, Adi Sankaracharya, and Swami Vivekananda, the greatest teachers and philosophers of yoga.
Why yoga and hypnotherapy are a perfect combination?
Derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Yuj’, which means, “joining, union, to unite”. The original meaning of yoga is the process of uniting the individual with the Universal Self.
Through the combination of yoga and hypnotherapy you can master your mind and you are able to reach your original state and experience true health. To completely understand the effects of this combination read about yoga and hypnotherapy for complete health.
