What are the Primary Areas for Study of Associated Yoga and Lifestyle Texts and Teachings?

As a student we need to consider six separate, yet related textual study areas that need to be prioritised and developed as an essential aspect of our Yoga journey and personal development according to the teachings of Krishnamacharya.

Each textual topic offers a range of in-depth Modular Workshops and Courses for your personal study interest and development, or if relevant, professional skills.

“Yoga Practice is an essential part of Yoga Study.
Rather than Yoga Study being an essential part of Yoga Practice.”

The six links below will take you to a page where you can explore an overview of each of the six topics in the Associated Yoga and Lifestyle Texts Study Workshops and Courses that complement the Yoga Practice Techniques and Theory Study Workshops and Courses.

Study of each of these six primary Associated Yoga Texts topics begin with a 2 day Introductory Module One Workshop as a starting point for the student. From there a Foundational range of 4 day Modular Course options are available. Together they allow a uniquely comprehensive intensive exploration of all facets of textual and lifestyle teachings around Yoga.

“The Art of viniyoga is a process that moves from a uniquely personalised Yoga practice adapted to
our outer limitations towards a uniquely personalised practice that explores our inner potentials.”

The Associated Yoga and Lifestyle Texts Workshop and Course Modules total over 300 contact hours. However a Core level of combined modular study totalling 100 hours can be undertaken, leaving 200 hours of Intermediate and Advanced levels available for those interested in Further Studies.

The Core level 100 contact hours of Associated Yoga and Lifestyle Texts Study is comprised of:

Furthermore, as all the Modular Workshops and Courses are limited to a maximum of five students putting together a group has much more flexibility. They aim to facilitate an in-depth focus in terms of intensity, relevance to group situations, all within an exclusive learning environment.
