Lineage and Teachings
The Aryamarga Yoga teachings are an integrated system of untouched and unchanged practices of the 4 stages of Yoga, handed down over a period of more than 5000 years from ancient Guru-s of the Lineage of the 84 Mahasiddha-s / Great Accomplishers.
Our Guru, at whose lotus feet we had the fortune of receiving the essence of these teachings hails from the same lineage. The authentic teachings divide the practice of Yoga into 4 sections - to balance and amplify life-energy, to evolve the mind, to transform consciousness and finally to attain One-ness with universal consciousness.These 4 stages are known as Hatha, Mantra, Kundalini and Samadhi in Yoga.
We teach the 4 stages separately in retreats and in an integrated form in the Teachers and Advanced Teachers Training Courses. Our couses, based on the traditions therefore give importance to specific techniques-physical, mental and senses based, that cause the inner experiences which are required for progress in the path of Yoga.
When we move into authentic lineage Yoga, we move beyond the 'only physical' experience. Resting in fearless joyfulness, Yoga becomes the way of life itself, transforming ourselves constantly and gladdening those who come into contact with us.
