Sivananda Yoga After teachings of Swami Sivananda, is a form of hatha yoga in which the training focuses on preserving the health and wellness of the practitioner.
Sivananda training revolves around frequent relaxation, and emphasizes full, yogic breathing.
The Sivananda training system aims to retain the vitality of the body, retard the decaying process, and decrease chance of disease, by simply and naturally cultivating the body. The system philosophies are summarized in 5 principles.
Five points of Yoga:
- Proper breathing: Pranayama
- Exercise: Asanas
- Relaxation: Savasana
- Diet: Vegetarian.
- Positive thinking and meditation: Vedanta and Dhyana
A session of training typically starts with every practitioner resting in Savasana (=Relaxtion), and begin with two breathing exercises: Kapalabhati (=forced exhalation) and Anuloma Viloma (=alternate nostril breathing), preceding rounds of Sūrya namaskāra (=Sun Salutation), before the standard program of the 12 basic asanas (=posters).
A session averages 90 minutes, and the traditional program may be followed flexibly by the instructor, allowing for some variation.
Sivananda Yoga teachers are all graduates of the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Course, and students widely range in age and degrees of ability.
