Advanced Yoga Practices

Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP) is a full-scope system of yoga. Practices taught include Deep Meditation using a universal mantra, advanced Spinal Breathing Pranayama methods, Samyama, Self-Inquiry, and an integration of Hatha, Kundalini and Tantra techniques, all for steadily cultivating inner peace and enlightenment through an easy daily practice. Everyone is encouraged to go at their own speed in taking on new practices. Much attention is devoted in AYP to developing skill in "self-pacing," with the aim of assisting every practitioner to become self-sufficient with these powerful tools that cultivate human spiritual transformation.

Retreats are a great way to deepen your personal practice and learn more about the practices and philosophy of yoga. 

Yoga is an often mis-understood word in the West, often being reduced to a physical practice. So, what is it really?

Reviews from past Advanced Yoga Practices retreats and Teacher Training Courses.

“What a great retreat… , it was intensive but very beautiful for the soul. The practitioners were from all walks of life, reminding me that seekers are all around us, if we only open our hearts to ask or smile. The food was exceptional, the place stunning and peaceful . It will remain with me forever and I took many teachings away with me. There is a great fellowship in practicing together with a worthy teacher. I would encourage anybody to attend at whatever point you are at in your path.” (Sujata Mathurs, United Kingdom)

“Passed with distinction the yoga teacher training course. The level of individual attention given to us by enlightened teachers is beyond words. We are all grateful and full of joy for such teachers. Even people who are already yoga teachers and did this training say it is like no other. I can highly recommend the Advanced Yoga Practices Teacher Training. It is so much more than a teacher training course, it was also a retreat and a means to connect with colleagues from around the world. And above all to learn from great teachers who know ...and make dear life long friends and begin changing ourselves fundamentally.”

“Advanced Yoga Practices have changed my life. I don't think that just any other yoga teaching would have. It is because this Yoga system focuses on meditation (and other sitting practices) and not only mainly on asanas. Thus it is full-scope and covers the eight limbs of Yoga . It teaches us how to become autonomous in our practice to transmit that in return to our students. This yoga system has been wonderfully designed and nothing has been left over. It deserves to be well-known, and I believe it will be. The teachers have been fantastic. Passionate, kind, open-minded, funny, very knowledgeable and receptive. And the list could go on and on. The atmosphere within the group was incredible. Like a loving family. This AYP TTC has been one of the most beautiful experiences in my life. So yes, I definitely recommend it! Thank you so much guys... Lots of love.!”
