Would you like to deepen your yoga practice?

You would like to know more about the various exercises and their applications in private and professional life?

Are you interested in the philosophical background of the yoga trend?

In the 2-year yoga training for the classic yoga teacher, you will learn everything you need to know for the private and professional use of yoga and yoga exercises. Yoga is taught in the traditional way of India: “satsanga” means to sit down and deepen spiritual issues together. Lectures, questions and discussions lead to a better understanding of the theory.

The yoga course lasts 2 years. It covers 240 hours, equivalent to 320 lessons of 45 minutes each. These lessons are spread over 16 weekends. The final exam will take place on the 17th weekend.

Classical Yoga in the Tradition of Yogi Paramapadma Dhiranandaji

In 1986 Paramapadma Dhiranandaji founded a yoga teacher training in Schorndorf (D), which has been taking place in Speicher (CH) since 1998. His intention was to provide students with a solid foundation in yoga philosophy and to train them in classroom practice. Over the years, he has given some of his yoga teachers the title of “Yogacharya” and authorized them to build their own courses in the tradition of his yoga teacher training (see www.yogidhirananda.ch).

Some hallmarks and specialties of this training are:

  1. Spiritual Orientation: Whether doing physical exercises (asanas), doing breathing exercises (pranayama), or doing meditation exercises – the central element is that the yoga practices are done “with yoga”. This means that the practitioner is aware of the unity with Atma (the soul) and carries out the exercises in this consciousness.
  2. Concentration and breathing: During the exercises, the practitioner focuses on certain areas of the body and takes the exercises with normal breathing. In doing so, the practitioner draws his attention inward, listening to the inner guidance that guides him through the practice. It increases the intensity of the exercise.
  3. Relaxing and Feeling the Effects: For some exercises, the practitioner relaxes after each round, but certainly after the last round in Savasana. Through this relaxation, in which the practitioner concentrates on the effect of the exercise, only the full effect unfolds. In the position, the blood circulation is a little limited, so that it becomes stronger in the subsequent relaxation. In this way, the organs, muscles, all cells are strengthened and regenerated. This effect can not fully develop if – as in other Yoga directions – the relaxation is too short or just at the end of the yoga lesson.
  4. Practicing several rounds: In the yoga tradition of Paramapadma Dhiranandaji, most of the exercises involve several rounds. As a result, the body is slowly and consciously guided into a position.
  5. Restrictions: In many cases, yoga exercises can help alleviate or cure physical ailments. But just so not all yoga exercises are suitable for all people in all situations. For example, the pituitary gland of children should not be stimulated too early, so before the age of 12 years reversal exercises should be avoided. This restriction is not made in all yoga schools! In the yoga tradition of Paramapadma Dhiranandaji we practice yoga exercises consciously – this includes observing the limitations.
