121 Online Viniyoga of Āsana eStudy Modules Two to Five Framework

The online Viniyoga of Āsana Modules Two to Five reflect the teachings of TKV Desikachar and his father and teacher T Krishnamacharya as taught to Paul Harvey over 25 years through:

  • Guidance in emphasising a personal Āsana Practice to support your everyday life
  • Understanding the principles in Āsana which inspire and shape Yoga practice
  • An overview of Yoga teachings around Āsana practice
  • Familiarisation with Yoga Āsana terminology and practice techniques
  • Appreciating how your body can work more effectively in Āsana
  • Deepening our work with and importance of Āsana in practice

It aims to present a view of the Viniyoga of Āsana to help develop our practice and deepen our relationship with Yoga practice & study. It is offered with respect for the vital source from which these Yoga teachings originated and their place in our age and culture.

“Abhyāsa, when performed with reverence, without interruption, over a long period of time, will result in a healthy body, acute senses and extraordinary alertness.”
– T Krishnamacharya

121 Online Viniyoga of Āsana eStudy Modules Two to Five Professional

The role of these eModules is not to train students as Yoga teachers although the Viniyoga of Āsana content will obviously enhance any Yoga teacher’s skills in the area of Yoga Psychology and Yoga Therapeutic Healthcare.

In fact, not everybody wants to or actually needs to become a Yoga teacher to further their practice and study. Here the priorities are towards personal development and thus questions relating to our personal practice and study are the priorities. These Courses reflect this viewpoint.

The aim is that we are all here in this course as students and it offers an opportunity for all teachers to step back from their teaching role and re-enhance their personal study and practice path.

Yoga is a process to train a student, not a training to process a teacher.
