Each of the Practitioner programs noted below have three components:
- Yogasana coursework
- Pranayama coursework
- Led practice
1. Yogasana Coursework
Coursework for both Yogasana and pranayama is characterised by instruction and application. The syllabus guides students through Yogasana, pranayama and Yoga philosophy such that Yoga is engaged as a reflective practice
2. Pranayama Coursework
Pranayama is the Yogic art of breathing. Pranayama is introduced in lying down position and evolves through repetition with an emphasis on the quality and texture of the breath. This approach develops a steady mind and a capacity to direct our attention. In a fast paced ever changing world pranayama requires that we let go of characteristics associated with doing and achieving to a state of being and watching.
3. Led Practice
Led practice moves students from a focus on instruction to an environment where they can refine observation, develop concentration and experience integration. In these sessions, the asana names are called with the practice leader presenting but there is no instruction. To enrol in a Led practice, students must also be enrolled in a Yogasana course.
