Programme

First Year
In the first year we learn the structure and basics of Vijnana Yoga and establish a consistent practice, working with the vayus and principles. The text is the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali.

Second Year
We continue with the structure and basics of Vijnana Yoga, deepening personal practice. In this year we start to broaden our vision, communicating the practice and understanding the needs of other students. We commence didactics and practice teaching. The study of anatomy begins. The texts are from the Vedas, the Upanisads, Bhagavadgita, etc. giving a wide view and understanding of the origins and philosophy of Yoga.

Third Year
We complete the study of the practices as outlined in the Vijnana Yoga Intermediate Practice Manual including all the series and postures. Sitting and pranayama practices are deepened. The study of anatomy becomes more applied. We read from the Hatha Yoga texts. Students begin teaching and assisting.

Certification

Book reports, didactical papers and a final project are among the assignments for this programme. Upon successful completion of these three years of study, students qualify for evaluation that includes one other recognized teacher from Vijnana Yoga International.
