Discover the complete meaning of yoga
Yoga is more than just physical exercise. Complete Yoga is a state of unity, experienced as perfect harmony between mind, body, and nature.
In this one-of-a-kind program, you’ll learn to establish and maintain a state of yoga in your life through a variety of modalities, including the practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique, Pranayama (breathing exercises), and Ayurveda.
Specialize in Maharishi Yoga Asanas
Maharishi Yoga Asanas is a comprehensive approach to Yoga (meaning “union”) designed to cultivate coherence between mind, body, and consciousness. This system of Yoga naturally cultures the experience of “steady pleasantness” in mind and body and supports the expansion of consciousness.
In a research study published in the International Journal of Yoga, Maharishi Yoga Asanas were found to produce a “significant increase in happiness during the day and significant improvements in (1) sense of personal self, (2) transpersonal qualities, and (3) transpersonal self.”
Maharishi Yoga Asanas are complemented by an intellectual framework rooted in profound insights from Yoga philosophy and the classic Yogic texts — Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, and more.
In addition to the specialization in Maharishi Yoga Asanas, students will also be introduced to other styles and aspects of Yoga.
Established in Yoga, perform action
As a graduate of this program, you’ll be able to effectively teach the principles and practices of Maharishi Yoga Asanas in a yoga studio setting. In addition to learning the postures and developing a refined personal practice, you’ll study the benefits of each asana, modifications, and contraindications.
Courses on anatomy and physiology will lay the foundation for lesson planning and personalization to help students move safely and comfortably through a class.
Though this program is primarily online, 160 hours of in-person training will allow you to receive and practice hands-on assists and modifications.
We teach the Maharishi AyurVedaSM health system – the modern, scientific revival of complete Ayurveda.
