Module 1: Yoga Immersion Program
“Yoga” means “union” in the ancient Sanskrit language. It is a perfect description of the Integral Yoga system which synthesizes the various branches of Yoga into a comprehensive lifestyle system. The aim is to promote the harmonious development of every aspect of the individual. The results are subtle, profound, and measurable.
The six branches of Integral Yoga are powerful tools to encourage wellness and self-mastery. Trainees will refine and deepen their personal practices based on an exploration of:
- Hatha Yoga (physical postures)
- Raja Yoga (psychology of mind)
- Karma Yoga (selfless service)
- Bhakti Yoga (devotion)
- Jñana Yoga (self-analysis)
- Japa Yoga (mantra repetition)
Module 1 encourages you to deepen your own practice through the study of Yoga as a complete lifestyle science. You will be immersed in an experience of living Yoga for personal and spiritual development. The curriculum includes asana and basic anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy and study of sacred texts, and other traditional Yogic practices.
Upon graduation from Module 1, you will discover your personal practice has become firmly established and well-grounded, and you will have the option to pursue 200-hour teacher certification by continuing your studies with Module 2: Yoga Teaching Essentials.
