Continuing Education Practical Anatomy: The Next Step in Teaching and Adjusting with Integrity

Education sessions will be a combination of theoretical learning and practical application, with a focus on “doing”.

June 28 – July 11 Pranayama Detail and Practice (Continuing) Paul Dallaghan

Pranayama Detail and Practice (Continuing)

This course is inspired and blessed by Tiwariji, Paul’s direct teacher and one of the few living knowledgeable authorities on Pranayama and its place in the field of yoga today. It is a living tradition. Paul has learnt the full practice in a special one-to-one capacity over the past 15+ years with Tiwariji. Tiwariji learnt directly from his teacher, Swami Kuvalayananda, who was an adept and highly accomplished in Pranayama and the science of yoga. He was also a devotee and spent his years in practice and training with his teacher, Madhavadas, on the banks of the Narmada river, also being taught this exact practice of Pranayama. In this way it has been passed on very personally and effectively.

Hatha Yoga Pradipika – Special Continuing Education Hatha Pradipika Chapters 4 – 5

Hatha pradipika is considered the most authoritative and available text on the methods and process of Hatha Yoga. It is a collection of many verses coming from other key yogis and their writings that subsequently got lost or destroyed. As such, this text played a key role in preserving the teachings of Hatha in one source document. Many call it the Hatha yoga pradipika but the author, Swatmarama, himself titles it Hatha pradipika, which means light on hatha.
