About the 45-Day 4 Yogas 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, Mind-Breathing, Internalised Senses, and Higher Consciousness 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 unique Prana enhancing environments, an ancient coastal forest (Oct.2024) and high-mountain Himalayan settings (Apr.2025) to bring the experience to a close, and a new beginning.

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
