Jiva Yoga Academy offer best Yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India, we are influenced by so many Great Sages from our Tradition, modern practitioners, as well as thinkers and most of them, reflect in our expressions of teaching. Over the years in the natural evolution of the School, we have observed Yoga as a practice of disciplining body and mind.
In the process to achieve discipline, the most important thing for a practitioner is to understand the very nature of body and mind, especially mind.
What is Mind? How does it work? Why do we need to discipline it? What are the ways to discipline it? Is it ever going to be disciplined?
The culture of Asana practice started as Hatha Yoga Tradition, since then it has crossed a long way to reach to the modern versions of Shri B. K. S. Iyengar and Sri K Pattabhi Jois styles of Yoga. These two are the pillars of the modern form of yoga, where one talks about the precise alignment and the other about the flow. According to the philosophy of Jiva Yoga Academy In Rishikesh, we as the practitioners of Yoga requires both, where alignment is the prerequisite to experience the ultimate stillness of Mind and body, at the same time flow is equally important and required in our life for its ultimate expressions and also for its ability to flow even in the odds of life. These two streams of Yoga studies are the basis of Modern Yoga. Jiva Yoga Academy as a Yoga School pays a lot of emphasis on the Traditional practices of Hatha Yoga, which slowly and gradually prepares for Raja Yoga. As we know Raja Yoga is the culmination of all the Yoga styles and practices. At the same time, we include the concepts of Alignment from Iyengar and flow from different Traditions. We believe that a comprehensive Yoga session supposes to be a good balance between the practice of Static postures and flow.
