About the course

What will I learn

His offering, Antaranga Yoga, is a comprehensive practice of inner transformation that draws its foundation from Patanjali's Yoga Sutra. It incorporates various experiential learning methodologies such as movement, reflective drawing, introspection, meditation and contemplative conversations. Through these practices, individuals learn to discover and anchor themselves in their true nature (svabhava), personal autonomy (svatantrata), and inherent purpose (svadharma). The focus is on cultivating inner coherence through introspection and building ways to lead and influence others and systems in creative and positive ways.

Benefits of this course

The course provides individuals with tools and practices to navigate the challenges of modern living with wisdom, clarity, and authenticity. By engaging in Antaranga Yoga, individuals can experience profound inner transformation, enhanced self-awareness, and a deeper connection to their inner selves. This, in turn, enables them to make conscious choices, act with integrity, and lead a life aligned with their true nature and purpose.

Incorporating in my life

The practice of Antaranga Yoga involves a regular combination of appropriate Asana & pranayama practices, observing and reflecting upon one’s behaviour, introspection, and contemplation. It is recommended to set aside dedicated time for these practices and integrate them into one's daily or weekly routine for optimal benefits.
