- the study and the practice of breathing, in order to dispel psychological and emotional tension and strengthen the immune system;
- relaxation or a meditation as a moment for integring the work that has been done.
Typology of the lessons
A lot of time is devoted to paying attention to the body and to breathing (proprioceptions) and to preparation for regaining flexibility and vigour.
The gentle simultation of muscles, joints and of the various organic apparatuses are the principles leading to a gradual exploration of the positions.
Explanation of the practices, at both anatomic-physiological and philosophical-symbolic levels, is detailed and is communicated in precise and simple language.
Preparation and a gradual approach in the exercices are the basic principles.
The next step is to develop new patterns in terms of both movement and postural and a mental hygiene to foster the way of living everyday life.
The prerequisite is to have adequate motivation, a good ability to listen and responsibility, as well as the fervent wish to practice a discipline that concerns all the psychological and physical components of the human being.
Lesson with pranayama
Dynamic preparation, static postures of increasing intensity and regulation of the respiratory activity are predominant in the lesson.
The 30 last minutes are dedicated to the study of pranayama, that is to say that using breathing we focus on the nervous system and address the psyche.
Hatha yoga and tradition
This lesson is deeply interwoven with precepts from the point of view of the Yogis, amazing experts of the human being. It requires devotion to the masters and to the teachings, emotional stability and tha ability to turn to contemplation of the deeper self.
The wording madras yoga indicates a lesson where you can access the room at any time, not necessarily at the start of the lesson, and also end freely.
The instructor does not guide the lesson in its entirety, but is present to: indicate to each participant an appropriate practice; make specific and individualized corrections; provide suggestions for progressing over time; facilitate the right moments of dialogue or a more silent atmosphere dedicated to the introspective experience.
Sri Sri Sri Satchidananda Yogi (Swamiji), at the madras ashram, followed the students in this way, allowing each one to grow in their own time and talents.
The best results are obtained
with regular practice and
the readiness to improve
ones own way of life.
The Yoga teacher
is trained to respect current knowledge
on the disciplines of movement and
according to a humanist education.
