About the Training

What is it all about?

“The greatest victory you can win is victory over your own mind”. Sri Swami Satchidananda

The course will entail the study of the “Yoga Sutras of Sri Patanjali” as translated by Sri Swami Satchidananda.

This amazing text, written so many centuries ago, holds the key to understanding the human mind and the human mission here on earth. It is psychology par excellence. Study of this text helps to solve many ethical, moral, emotional and physical problems one may have embedded in the psyche. It is only when we can understand ourselves and our make-up; our weaknesses and our strengths; apply solutions to our problems; that we can emerge into the world of the Self and Spirit. With a calm and peaceful mind, the vision of the Self appears, leading to Self Realization.

Be still and know that I am God”. (The Psalms).

Gurudev’s definition of Integral Yoga (Sri Swami Satchidananda)

“The goal of Integral Yoga, and the birthright of every individual, is to realize the spiritual unity behind all the diversity in the entire creation and to live harmoniously as members of one universal family. This goal is achieved by maintaining our natural condition of: a body of optimum health and strength, senses under total control, a mind well disciplined, clear and calm, na intellect as sharp as a razor, a will as strong and pliable as steel, a heart full of unconditional love and compassion, na ego as puré as a crystal and a life filled with Supreme Peace and Joy”.
