The Anubhava Yoga 360° Yoga Psychology Course

1-month/200-hour Yoga Psyhology Course – 20th June to 19th July 2020

The 1 month Yoga Psychology / Manasik Yoga programme is an intensive, 200 hour certification programme, culminating in the awarding of the Manasik Yoga Kriyakar/ Yoga Psychology Novice certification. Harking back to the Yoga of Discriminative Numeration or Samkhya Yoga, the diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic techniques of Yoga Psychology are based on the understanding of the absolute and moment to moment uniqueness of each individual.

Non-abstract and parametrical, Yoga psychology proposes a layered perspective of personality, such personality seen as being composed of multiple co-dependent levels, comprised of interacting matrices of cognition, affectivity and conation, which are termed Jnana, Kriya and Iccha shaktis respectively in Yoga psychology. Further, physiological factors, on the basis of homoeostasis, are also included as one of the interacting matrix structures, throughout the discovery and treatment period. By mapping these matrices and their link factors, we arrive at the Unique Integral Personality Matrix, without typecasting people into categories. In keeping with the unique personality of each individual, the prognostic and therapeutic techniques in Yoga psychology are uniquely tailored to suit such unique personalities.

Zero-Point System

The interacting matrices are not operational without the sensory environment, which acts as stimulus, and the associated interaction between the layered matrices of personality and perceived environmental factors is intensively covered in Yoga Psychology as most psychological imbalances find their root in the quality and type of this interaction. In fact, it is by manipulating the subject-object junctional experience that Yoga psychology works its most effective cures.

Contemporary psychology and its associated psychotherapeutic  techniques  categorise unique human personalities into neat boxes formed of pre-conceived notions, fancifully projected as axioms, by a psychiatric community constantly seeking the validation of psychology as a precise natural science. The hectic attempts to verifiably predict human mental processes through axiomatic structures, has led to the oversimplification of the immensely sophisticated and subtle human personality. Unbeknown to psychiatrists but well known to most others, humans are neither rats nor computers, so rat behaviourism and game theory cannot really help map the human mental process, as it is the observer of the rat experiment, not the rat, and the creator of the computer programme, not the programme, that is under study in psychology.

The prognostic effectiveness of Yoga psychology arises from the individual Yogic psychologist’s skill at arriving at a correct diagnosis of the Unique Integral Personality Matrix, using the evaluative and testing methods available in the Yoga psychology toolkit. Therapy is then administered through adjusting the imbalanced matrices and strengthening or re-associating weak or dissonant link factors.

My time at Arya Marga Yoga Institute has been so surreal.  It has been really comforting and exciting to know that we are learning true yoga from the source – the Naga lineage, which is where yoga came from in the first place.  The Institute’s focus on Raja Yoga and Kundalini yoga has been important for me since I am more spiritually inclined.

It has been so interesting to learn about the system of the 5 Elements and I have learnt so much about myself and others that way. You will not find this kind of approach in any other TTC and it is very important as each person has a different combination of elements and so we can offer them a tailored package of asanas, pranayama, mudras, and meditations accordingly.

My favorite parts are Yoga Psychology (including personality types, Dream Yoga and many meditations) and the meditation retreat in Spiti where we put our new knowledge into more intensive practice.  You will go through so many changes as is the case of true healing and spiritual evolution, and you will learn how to help others achieve changes as well, so it is definitely worth it.

The Aryamarga team members are so helpful, caring and accommodating, so I can assure you that you are in good hands if you join this 5 months program.

Nada Hamdan , Anubhava Yoga TTC, Class of 2017

I was looking for a yoga course that does not end in a month but instead continue for a longer duration giving me a chance to immerse in it completely. I found Aryamarga 5 month TTC course to be the best fit. Coming here, It took only a few days before we were completely mesmerised with how the course is arranged. PTAK sequence felt like the right balance of asanas with psychological and physiological changes showing up within few weeks of practice. Raja yoga classes gave a whole new level of understanding yoga in its complete essence and laid way for future growth. Overall the course has been a holistic approach of understanding the yogic sciences in theory and practice.

I amusingly call myself a perpetual escapist. Driven by my whims, I left my 13th job (in 8 years), looking for yet another escape. That’s when I discovered the 5-months TTC course offered by Aryamarga. Coming here, I knew exactly what I’d been escaping from, all my life and how to finally confront it.

Call it serendipity, I found myself being a part of this close-knit circle of brilliant Yoga teachers and like-minded aspirants from around the globe. Because of the limited number of students, everyone gets enough room for self improvisation, getting a grip on the fine nuances of yogic practices, be it asanas, pranayama or kriyas.

What really got me hooked though were Roshan Ji’s philosophical elaboration on original Yogic texts – Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, Vijnanabhairava Tantra and Mandukya Upanishad – it’s rich, unconventional and unexpectedly humorous! His teachings inculcate you with wisdom and reverence without compromising on playfulness.

Full of adventure and surprises, the fortnightly trips to the uncharted territories of Himalayas are something to look forward to.

Half-way through the course, I am realizing this is not a yoga TTC course per se. It’s more like an off-the-mat guidance to knowing yourself, and others, more intimately, making more meaningful connections, and hence be able to navigate through life most skillfully — turning your very whims into your greatest strengths. Coming from the very fountainhead of the original Natha lineage, the teachings help you explore the deserted nooks and corners of your own psyche — the way psychedelics never can.

Beautifully located in the Himalayan foothills – bestowing energy, focus and clarity upon this place – the AryaMarga TTC offers a unique opportunity to experience an integrative approach of traditional and authentic teachings of yoga, embedded in the context of modern life.

The caring warmth of the teachers, their dedication and compassion carried me through an as intense as insightful experience, gaining deeper knowledge and understanding of yoga – in personal practice and in theory – and the processes of life itself, while establishing a more balanced and harmonious state of being.

A definite recommendation for all practitioners and teachers, who want to dive deeper,  strive for insight and are willing to spark their inner fire.

Manuel HoglManuel Hoegl, Anubhava Yoga TTC, Class of 2018

Overall, I found the 5 Month TTC to be a unique and enlightening experience. I arrived with a relatively basic knowledge of Yoga and was greatly impressed with the comprehensive course schedule. The breakdown of the program into four modules is well structured and enables students to focus on various aspects of Yoga independently and/or consecutively. With its range of classes, this program was exactly what I hoping for to expand my understanding of Yoga and set me on a path to deepen my personal practice and share with others. I found the level and quality of teaching to be exceptional, with multiple instructors from varying backgrounds greatly adding to the depth of the material. I am also especially appreciative for the opportunity to pursue part of the course in Tabo, Spiti Valley which served to heightened our practices. I am genuinely impressed with the initiatives being pursued by AryaMarga Society. It is an honour to have had this opportunity and I feel privileged to have been a part of this program. of yoga, embedded in the context of modern life.

Sabra Surkis, Anubhava Yoga TTC, Class of 2019

Personally I would highly recommend the five month course because it gives you a rare chance to study and focus intensely. I noticed that I was able to rapidly build on the foundations of the 45 day course and then develop and refine my understanding of key ideas in further modules. Every student who completed the five month course, including myself, underwent visible physical and psychological transformations.

The students tend to come from all over the world, with usually 50% of the students from Europe, 30% from India and the rest from assorted countries.

The 5 month Anubhava/ Experiential Yoga course is a Teachers programme, and a highly advanced one at that. The Asana teaching capacities that will be grown in the student during the course will through the  knowledge of the techniques, the Elemental structure of the Asanas, the ability to pass on to others the method of bridging of the body and the mind through the breath and Mantra. Assists also play an essential part in the teaching of Asanas to others and the Vinyasas regarding the cautions at each step of each asana are ingrained in the students by the end of the training, where they will test out their knowledge gained through experience during the 5 months, on each other, and then on non-course students. Finally the students will individually demonstrate their intuitive and integrative grasp of the science of Asanas in examinations conducted by the Founding Teachers.  Proficiency will also be gained by the students to begin first stage psycho-diagnosis, psychotherapy and somatic therapy of more than 20 common diseases/ ailments, based on the training received by them during the 5 month course.
