About the Course
P-TAK 4 YOGAS 45-DAY INTENSIVE TTC
Aryamarga Yoga is proud to present the P-TAK 4 Yoga Teachers' certification programme, a 45 Day Intensive Yoga Training Course designed for those interested in actually experiencing the theory and practice of authentic Yoga.
The PTAK 4 Yogas Teacher Training Course acts both as a precursor to Arya Marga Yoga’s more intense and exhaustive 5-Month Anubhava Yoga TTC and independently, as a unique introduction to the ancient science of Integrated Yoga.
Known by their sanskrit terms-Hatha, Mantra, Tantra and Raja Yoga, the Four Yogas of the Body, the Mind, Consciousness and No-Mind have been practiced for millennia in India as one single Integrated system. This integrated system cannot simply be learnt-it must be experienced.
To rapidly enable the flowering of experiences in the Integrated 4 Yoga system, we utilize the experiential methods of Bhava-Spanda or Passion-Waves, the high intensification of mentally generated emotional states. The experience of this intensified emotion within the techniques of the 4 Yogas is the real inner revealer, and transformer of our personalities and bodies.
Experience in Samskrit is termed Anubhava and the Anubhava Yoga appreciation programme is designed to generate within the participants the inner experience of the 4 Yogas. The techniques learnt in the course will be practiced for maximum effect in these Himalayan settings to bring the experience to a close, and a new beginning.
The 45-Day P-TAK 4 Yogas Teacher Training Course introduces the 4-Yoga System in an intense and integrated manner. The training course lays a special emphasis on integrating the practices, as elucidated in the 11th-century master-text Hatha Yoga Pradipka, to the view and perspective as explained in the Raja Yoga Sutras.
The training during the course is intense, consisting of 6-7 classes every day for 6 days a week and a minimum 90% attendance rate is expected of the students. We cap the student intake for all our training courses to a maximum of 10 students. This helps us ensures the quality of teaching and also allows us to personalize the teachings according to each student's aptidude.
Our students come from all over the world, and the ages usually range from 20´s through 50´s. We require that the students have good health and have the stamina to keep up with the course.

PTAK Teacher Training - Key Takeaways
Roshan Palat, Founder & Philosophy Teacher
Roshan met his Guru near an alpine village a few hours hiking distance from the mountain town of Uttarkashi.
Ganapati Baba’s teaching of the 4 Yogas of the ancient Mahasiddhas Lineage and the profound manner in which it was imparted changed Roshan’s life forever.
Being instructed to learn more about Mahakaruna / The Great Compassion and Shunyata/Emptiness, by his Guru, Roshan undertook a 3-year study into Mahayana Buddhism and the View and Practices derived by that system from the 84 Mahasiddhas.
Since then he has been residing, practising and teaching in the Tibetan town of Bir
Thanida Palat, Co-founder & Hatha Asana Teacher
Thanida, a citizen of Thailand, has been teaching various forms of traditional Hatha Yoga across Thailand and India. She has received advanced Hatha training from Kaivalyadham, Pune, Bihar Yoga Bharati, Munger, Sivananda Ashram, Kerala and JivamuktiYoga, New York.
Having received Yoga training in the Lineage of the 84 Mahasiddhas, Thanida has incorporated her knowledge of the Hatha Asanas with the structure of the 5 element intensification and harmonization practices of the Lineage.
Akshat Madan, Pranayama & Somatic Yoga Teacher
Akshat, after having quit his job as a financial advisor, set out to travel the mystical land of Yogis and Sages. He was spellbound by the beauty and diversity that India offered, but found it almost impossible to make any coherent sense of his spiritual experience. The thirst for knowledge remained unsatiated. It was during his meeting with Roshanji, that an instant and deep connection was formed to a living lineage of yogic masters. He took the quantum leap and decided to fully immerse and dedicate himself to this new lifestyle

It must be strongly stated, however, that AryaMarga is not affiliated with Yoga Alliance or any other organisation as we are a stand alone institute. Our aim and objective is to tranmit the authentic yogic teachings of the original Naga Lineage, founders of Hatha Yoga and Laya/Kundalini Yoga.
Marta Castello Branco, Class of 2018
Aryamarga’s 45-Day-Yoga-Course is an excellent way to deepen both practice and knowledge on Yoga, helping to find the essential connection between them. As a complete path that includes the physical yogic activity and the unfolding of cognitive faculties, it promotes internal balance and naturally leads to higher states of consciousness. Asana and Pranayama Kryias are intense and provide a rich basis to self-practice. The study of fundamental texts of the Lineage is completely based on translations and commentaries developed in the institute. It clearly reflects the high level of authentic Yoga practice that has being made here. All the teachers are honestly committed, supportive and extremely generous. There is a lot of knowledge here and also the means to transmit it in a comprehensive way are thoroughly developed. I strongly recommend Aryamarga Yoga. May it benefit as many people as possible!
Chiara Praller, Class of 2019
For my path, having me led to AryaMarga Yoga Institute I am very grateful. The opportunity that we are given here, to study and experience the ancient teachings of Yoga is one that I believe to be very unique in its form.
We are offered profund teachings, building a wholesome system of practicing Yoga, which are made so vivid to take in by the passion they are presented to us.
Our teachers create a space for each of us to be who we are now and encourage us to grow towards ourselves, a space filled by compassion.
This course, being not even half way over, already offered me the possibility to let go of reference frames that were not of use anymore, giving me the chance to gradually elimite my own limitations.
I truly thank the AryaMarga Team for sharing their teachings with us.
The 5-Month Anubhava Yoga TTC is a full-time residential course. Accommodation would be provided at the spiritually charged AryaMarga Ashram Institute. The pristine Himalayan setting when combined with the powerful Yogic Kriyas allows for the rapid ascension onto the wondrous levels of Yoga.
Students get to choose between 3-Bed Deluxe Dorm Accommodation, Private Bamboo Cottage Accommodation and Shared Rose Cottage Accommodation.
During the 45-Day PTAK 4 Yogas Teacher Training, we prefer following the Yogic Diet which, contrary to what many people believe, is not Vegan.
Students get home-cooked vegetarian meals during their stay at the Ashram Institute. Some of the vegetables are directly sourced from our kitchen-garden.
We ensure that the daily nutritional requirements of the students are met through a wholesome dietary plan.
