AYP (Advanced Yoga Practices) is a system of spiritual practice known for the strength and efficiency of the techniques. The different techniques form an effective combination that effectively opens and purifies our nervous system. The AYP method is designed to guide the practitioner to discover our full potential and live from there. Characterized by an ecstatic state of being and an underlying sense of peace and bliss, which is the basis of unity and divine love, the true goal of yoga. AYP is a full-scope system of yoga, incorporating many different practices. Combining asana practice with Deep Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama, mudras, bandhas, samyama and self-inquiry methods, it forms one of the most complete and effective systems of yoga available.

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

The next teacher training course will be taking place in France in September/October 2020 and will be taught in English.

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 AYP retreats and Yoga 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.!”
