AryaMarga Yoga is pleased to present the teachings of Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the 14th century master-text that details the science of the Willful Union of the Sun & Moon disks. This course is part of the 4 Yoga Teacher Training Course, which comprises of Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Samkhya Yoga, Pancha Tattva Asana Kriya and Pancha Tattva Pranayama Kriya. The word Pradipika means to shed complete light on. Complete light on what? Light on the System and Techniques of Hatha Yoga. This text was composed in the 15th century, by Yogi Svātmārāma. In the very first chapter of this masterwork, Yogi Svātmārāma clearly gives his intent behind the composition of this text. By Yogī Swātmārāma’s time, (approx. 14 th -15 th Cent. AD) Raja Yoga had already become so ancient a science of Yoga, with such an inordinate number of lineages and individual Yogīs claiming their own interpretations of the system, that the original Lineage teachings of Yoga seemed at risk of disappearing from the public consciousness. In this module, students would be introduced to the following topics as concerns this text - a) Why does a Yogi need to keep the Practice Secret? b) The Conditions required to Attain Success in the Practice of Hatha Yoga  c) The Characteristics of a Hut of Yoga d) The Frame of Mind required to Practice Hatha Yoga e) The Six Obstacles on the path of Hatha Yoga f) The Six Generative Factors on the path of Hatha Yoga
