The Sacred Science of Yoga

“The word ‘yoga’ literally means ‘union.’ When you experience everything as one in your consciousness, then you are in yoga.”
‐ Sadhguru

The sacred Science of Yoga

Initially,  yoga  was  imparted  by  the  Adiyogi  (the  first  yogi),  Shiva,  over  15,000  years ago. It was Adiyogi who introduced to humanity the idea that one can evolve beyond one’s present level of existence. He poured this knowing into the legendary Sapta Rishis, or “seven sages,” who carried this powerful yogic science to various parts of the world, including  Asia,  ancient  Persia,  northern  Africa,  and  South  America.    For  generations, countless masters, holding it above their own lives, have passed on this sacred thread of knowledge without a single distortion.

Classical yoga comprises of various methods to elevate and purify one’s energies and raise one’s perception to its peak.  Today, however,  the  refined  tools  of  classical  yoga have  been  largely  lost  or  grossly  distorted  due  to  socio‐cultural  misunderstandings that  have  accumulated  over  many  centuries. Only  in  a  very  few  places,  the  classical system endures with its full vibrancy and sanctity.  Moreover, access to this system has been  traditionally  reserved  for  the  hardiest  seekers  and  monks  who  devote  their entire lives to spiritual sadhana and austerity.

It  is  Sadhguru’s  vision  to  revive  this  ancient  science  in  all  its  purity  and  make  it available to every individual. As a step towards realizing this vision, he has devised the Hatha  Yoga  Teacher  Training  Program.  Here,  Hatha  Yoga  will  be  taught  not  just  for theoretical understanding, but as a living experience. Upon completion of the program, trainees  will  have  the  privilege  and  fulfillment  of  bringing  this  knowledge  to  many more.
