It constitutes various steps, methods and techniques to achieve this purification. This includes internal body cleansing techniques, practices, steady & comfortable postures.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow Yoga, popularly called Ashtanga Yoga, recognizes the power of the physical form and uses this to achieve growth in Yoga.

This is a dynamic, flow yoga where the Postures (asanas) flow in a sequence and are synchronized with breathing patterns to generate sufficient heat in the body.

Deep body purification occurs through this method removing deep rooted toxins causing disease.

The Yoga at Ajarya

Understanding the significance of these 2 major styles of Yoga, the cultural profile of the trainees and yet recognizing the depth of yoga beyond these 2 styles, Ajarya has devised a unique program.

The style of this teacher training is predominantly Ashtanga Vinyasa which allows gaining the maximum benefits from the physical practice. Yet, the integral and extensive aspects of yoga including deep relaxation techniques, energy locks & gestures are given their appropriate place, so that the practitioners develop a balanced, well rounded and an in-depth approach to yoga – exactly what yoga is meant to be.

  • Thank you for a great time and a great education. I really felt taken care of through the whole program, everything from first contact to accommodation to teaching, to free time (such as visiting sights, going to the doctor and getting a surprise party for my birthday) really was well arranged and high quality.
