“5-Day Yoga Courses” at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre

Arambol Yoga Centre, North Goa: from early November until the end of March.
Dharamkot Yoga Centre, Dharamsala: from mid March until the end of October.
5-Day Courses begin every Wednesday at 9.30 am

The 5-Day Yoga Courses immerse the participant into the essence of Yoga, teaching both its aspects, philosophical as well as practical. During these Courses, a student learns everything that is needed to maintain a regular self-practice independently.

Sharat Arora, Indian yoga master, designed the 5-Day Courses program using a scientific approach and an awareness that is often overlooked in other forms of Yoga. During his 40 years of experience and research in the field, he developed and still continues to explore a unique approach to teaching the foundations of Yoga practice in the simplest way possible.

Yoga GoaThere are thousands of Yoga Asanas, but which of them are the most beneficial for our modern times? This question is being answered on the 5-Day Yoga Courses conducted by one of our teachers. They are introducing the B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga as well as providing a working knowledge to become a self-practitioner. Corrective, rejuvenating / energizing and relaxing / meditative postures are taught. Those students with ailments are given specific therapeutic attention and guidelines. The Course provides a fundamental framework and inspires one to explore deeper within. The Course is informative, motivational and, above all, experiential.

The classes are 2.5 to 3.5 hours daily and are offered at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre on a weekly basis. For serious yoga practitioners we highly recommend to follow a minimum of 2 consecutive 5-day courses to learn the most essential poses of our practice and experience the essence of Yoga whereas 3 courses ensures a better grasp on how to do self practice without needing to attend classes.

In order to encourage long-term Yoga training at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre, there is a different theme and focus each week.

1. 5-Day Introductory Yoga Course (for Beginners): Students coming to the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre for the first time must start with the 5-Day Introductory Course. This applies to everyone, regardless of their previous Yoga experience and ability. One of Sharat Arora trained teachers will conduct this Course. The Course is informative, motivational and, above all, experiential.

2. 5-Day Yoga Course for Returning Students: After successfully completing the 5-Day Yoga Introductory Course (for Beginners), students who want to continue their Yoga training at HIYC, start the classes for the Returning students early in the morning and are instructed by master teacher Sharat Arora or one of his trained teachers. These students are taught additional postures and guided into more subtle details of practice, according to the pace at which they develop. Both 5-Day Courses – for Beginners as well as for Returning Students - take 2.5 to 3.5 hours daily.
