Through this course, Dr Kumar presents a culmination of insights derived from ancient texts such as the Yoga Sutras, the Sankhya Karika, the Upanishads, and the Bhagavad Gita, along with various Indian Philosophies. Participants will not only delve into theory but will also gain hands-on experience in meditation techniques. Fundamental pranayama and yogic asanas are incorporated to support the meditation journey. The essence of these teachings revolves around understanding and effectively training the mind.
In a world characterized by constant distractions, stress, and emotional upheavals, the principles imparted in this course provide a compass for navigating these challenges with equanimity and resilience. By understanding the mind's mechanisms and employing meditation techniques, participants can have enhanced focus and clarity of thought and heightened concentration. The teachings also foster emotional balance by mitigating negative emotions such as anger and fear. As a result, participants experience greater mental stability and an increased capacity to respond to situations with calmness and composure.
Participants are encouraged to set aside dedicated time for meditation, allowing the mind to experience stillness and presence. The pranayama can be seamlessly woven into the morning or evening routine to support the meditation practice.
