A Brief

Yoga is Union. But, we are, each one of us, already in Union or Yoga with our existing identities right now, namely our own bodies, our senses, memories and mind. Taking our scattered selves to the higher levels of Integrated Self Awareness is the Whole Science and Art of Yoga. The levels of Willful evolution of our Integrated self ends only at the Absolute Experience. 

This is Yoga, This is Higher Experience, the Anubhava of True Yoga.

The 5-Month Anubhava Yoga Teacher Training Course is structured specifically to help you achieve this Anubhava or Experience of True Yoga. The 4 Crucial components for experiencing the Higher Levels of Self within a TTC are the Teaching Methodology, the Teaching Content and Authenticity, the Environment where the Teaching is happening and last, but not the least, the Teachers and their Quality
Our mission, at AryaMarga Yoga, given to us by our Yoga Guru is to correct the dilution and confusion of True Yoga that has been an unfortunate consequence of the blatant commercialisation of Yoga.

What you will receive at AryaMarga Yoga is the Essence and Secret Practices of the 4 Yogas comprising the ancient Anuttara Yoga Tantra or the Highest Union of Yoga and Tantra Path.

Your 5-Month Yogic journey of transmutation begins with the P-TAK 4 Yogas Course, introducing the 4 Yogas - The Hatha, Mantra-Prana, Laya and Raja-Samadhi Yoga, and gaining introductory level proficiency in all the 4 Yogas.

The Second sub-module TTC, the Somatic Therapy Training Course will train the students, through Intermediate Level of 5-Elements Mastery, towards preventing, diagnosing and treating more than 20 Major Lifestyle Diseases. An Intermediate Level of Kriya Yoga, Pranayama & Asanas will also achieved by the students within this course.

Students will be trained to immediately perceive and cognise the Whole Personality of others and have awareness of their own Unique Psychological traits of personality. Psychological and Emotional self-healing, diagnostics, therapy and evolutionary methodologies will be taught and practiced in this course module of the TTC.  

This in turn allows the student to move from being one who experiences the power of Yoga, to one who heals, and help develop the bodies and minds of others with Yoga - a true teacher.

The Final and the 4th module of the 5-Month TTC is the Tantra Yoga Course. This course is not, strictly speaking a TTC as the students are not undergoing training in this course to be teachers. Rather, they are being trained in the subtle and immensely powerful methods of Yogini/Shakti Tantras and the MahaMudra systems of Yoga. This is a purely experiential course, intense, technical and demanding. The magical and esoteric worlds of Tantras within are revealed through experience, transforming the self & life, by the practice of these wondrous systems of Anuttara Yoga Tantra.  

About

Detailed Curriculum

The 5-Month 1100HR Anubhava Yoga TTC comprises 4-Modules, all of which you can take together as the whole Intensive Integrative Training, or which you can take separately depending on your personal interest.


Detailed requirements for registering for each module if taken separately is included in the information below. The training during the course is intense, consisting of 6-7 classes every day for 6 days a week with Saturdays being a half day and a 90% attendance rate is required of the students. We keep the batches intimate and personal so we tend to limit the batch size to between 10-12 students who come from all over the World.
The ages usually range from 20´s through 60´s and we require that the students have good health, are not presently prescribed any psychotropic medication, have not had any major surgeries for a minimum period of two years from before the date of application for the course, and have the stamina to keep up with the course.

1st Module : P-TAK 4 Yogas TTC


The P-TAK module introduces the 4-Yoga System in an intense and integrated manner, with particular focus on integrated yoga practices from Hatha Yoga & Raja Yoga. There are 3-4 theory classes per day, consisting of Raja Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Introduction to Samkhya Philosophy and the psychology of 5-Elements.

Our classes are intensive, exhaustive and descriptive, taught by teachers from the Mountain tradition of the Naga-Giri Monks and the Vajrayana Lineage.

 

The main subjects taught during the P-TAK 4 Yogas TTC are as follows :-  

Hatha Asanas

During the course, students undergo training in the P-TAK (Pancha Tattva Asana Kriya) twice daily. This is a Hatha Asana practice of 75 minutes specifically developed to harmonize and energize our Elemental composition, preparing the body and mind for further advanced Pranayama & Meditation Kriyas (practices).

5 elements as taught in the 5 month intensive yoga teacher training course

Samkhya 5-Elements 

The module introduces psychological study of the 5-Elements - their cognitive, affective and behavioural traits

2nd Module : Somatic Therapy TTC

The Second module is an advanced study of the 5-Elements and their physical manifestation in the body. Each Element is mapped to specific bodily organs based on Yogic understanding of the Element and its correlation with the functioning of the organ. Students learn how the harmonious interaction between the bodily hormones helps maintain homeostasis, and about the imbalances that lead to disease.
 
This module is also our Yoga Therapy Module, covering as it does the Etiology, Diagnosis, Prognosis and Therapy for over 20 lifestyle based diseases. Within this module Anatomy studies are intensified, the P-TAK sequence is changed from the 27 asana practice to a 2 and half hour practice of 54 advanced asanas, the A-PTAK sequence.

Pranayama and visualisations are more specific where students start learning curated Asana sequences to prevent the onset of future diseases and to treat existing ones.
The students will study these diseases from an allopathic point as well as the Yogic perspective. This module is not Theory intensive, but more practical in nature.

3rd Module : Yoga Psychology TTC 


The Third Module is the Yogic Psychology module which introduces the 0 Point System – the culmination of over a decades long research by AryaMarga Yoga to integrate the diverse systems of yoga psychology into a composite system of Psychological Diagnosis, Prognosis and Therapy.

Starting with customised diagnosis of personality traits as per Yoga Psychology, the 0 Point System provides customised suites of Yogic tools-that comprises of Asanas, Pranayamas and Psychological techniques suited to the individual personality.
The customisation process is decided by the initial survey and observation based diagnosis of the individual, a process called Personality Mapping. This process allows us to understand our own unique personality system. We then target personality traits desired by the individual and finally give form to the suite of tools so that they may act as a ‘Personality Bridge’ between the existing personality with its existing traits and the Desired Personality with its desirable traits. The process of transformation or Personality Expansion is then activated and realised, its speed depending upon the regularity and intensity of practice of the suite of individualised Yogic tools within the 0 Point System. In this module, the students will also be introduced to the in depth study of the Siva Sutras, Mudras, Advanced pranayama, Yoga Nidra practices and Laya Yoga Theory.

Post the study of the texts and introduction to the practices, the students will engage fully in the Kriyas independently in their own chosen caves/hut.

Akshat Madan, Pranayama & Somatic Yoga Teacher

Akshat, 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
