Yoga Beyond the Physical Body

Practiced properly, Yoga is much more than simple physical training. It helps us develop mental, emotional, psychological, and spiritual qualities, and transforms us in more ways than the eyes can see.

Yoga allows us to access and master our “inner resources” – such as energy, mental focus, and creativity.

By practicing yoga, we learn to cultivate & consciously direct these inner resources, and gain the ability to transform ourselves & our lives in whatever direction we choose.

The tools and techniques presented in this course help us to better understand ourselves, develop total self-mastery, and achieve our highest goals & aspirations.

Transformation through Yoga

 

The purpose of this course is to provide the most efficient techniques & knowledge from genuine YOGA systems, to help each of us accelerate our spiritual development and evolution.

Yoga means, among other things, conscious accelerated evolution. Through systematic practice, yoga helps us discover & awaken the potential qualities that lie deep within each of us – such as intelligence, willpower, compassion, and vitality – and transform in ways which we could only dream of before.

Yoga can also be defined as ability and intelligence in action – using our inner resources with mastery & efficiency. We can, for example, energize & amplify our mental focus & creativity – then use them to achieve our highest aspirations.

The different techniques presented in this course are very simple and can be practiced by anyone. With consistent practice, they create truly life-changing results.

Law of Resonance: Modern Science & Ancient Tradition

The foundation of Esoteric Integral Yoga, and any authentic yoga tradition, is the Law of Resonance – which starts from the fundamental notion that everything in manifestation is made of vibration.

In the scientific world we find the Law of Resonance studied and applied in physics and music, concerning physical phenomena. It is what allows transfer of radio waves from a broadcasting station to a receiving antenna through a specific tuning of their frequency of vibration.

Yoga reveals that the Law of Resonance is also applicable in towards more subtle forms of energy, such as thoughts and emotions.

Various attitudes, states and qualities are characterized by different frequencies of vibration. Through yoga, we can learn to ‘tune’ in and resonate with them – using our body and attention – to (for example) increase our intelligence, or our capacity to heal and be happy.

Beyond this, the course serves a genuine bridge between ancient spirituality and modern science.  The vast & in-depth curriculum references research & studies from the fields of biology, anatomy, psychology, neuroscience, and physics (mechanics, electro-magnetics, quantum physics) – linking them to the corresponding teachings of the ancient traditions.

Realization through Direct Experience

In this yoga course you find each technique and its effects thoroughly explained by an experienced yoga teacher, and supported by written courses.

We practice yoga in a unique manner, where we stay in each asana for a prolonged period of time with a specific inner focus and attitude.

Each technique is followed by an awareness phase of synthesizing the effects in a continuous state of guided interiorized attention.

In this way, all aspects presented in the theory – Chakras, Nadis, Prana, flows of energy, etc – can be personally explored & verified by each and every one of us, through our own practice, direct experience, and personal transformation over time.

Our teachers will guide you to correctly perform each technique, so you can experience the effects for yourself!

    You will also learn yogic methods to improve your health, including deeper rest and regeneration, increase flexibility, alleviate back pains and muscular contractions, calm and nourish the nervous system, prevent various side effects of aging, and stimulate the optimal function of the organs of the body.

    All asanas and other techniques will be taught extensively explaining their health benefits, so that you can design your own daily practice to improve your physical condition as you need and wish.

    You will also learn about a natural balanced lifestyle, including purification/detox methods, diet and herbal remedies. For example you will learn the famous intestinal cleanse Shanka Praksalana, and about foods and herbs that increase your immunity and vigor.

    You aspire for growth & personal development

    In this course you will learn to transform various aspects of your life and of your personality as you wish, using practical methods in a systematic manner to obtain your goals and aspirations.

    As human beings, we carry an immense inner potential, which for most people remains beyond imagination. The asanas and other yogic methods in the course are designed to awaken and amplify various qualities, such as love, creativity, willpower, intelligence, perseverance, intuition, so that they become an integral part of you.

    Learning the specific benefits of each method and being guided how to practice it correctly, including the proper focus, you will gradually build your own tool box of methods to improve yourself.

    You are interested in spirituality and the “deeper things” in life

    This course is for you who are open and aspire to discover and directly explore for yourself that which is beyond the mind and the perception of the ordinary senses. Yoga is a path of discovering and experiencing the invisible structures and laws of the universe.

    Through the practice and study of yoga you can find answers to existential questions like: “Who am I? What was I born for? What do I live for? What will happen to me after I die?”, and become inspired to seek and reveal your innermost essence and the true meaning of your life, and live in accordance with it.

    By practicing yoga you will also over time experience a whole new dimension to your life, becoming able to be fully in the present moment and live a profound state of peace, happiness, freedom and expansion.

    Class Structure

    In the first year, classes are 2 hours consisting of approx. 75-90 minutes of practice, and approx. 30-45 minutes of theory.

    There are 46-48 classes in a year – 1 per week. Classes pause in August and resume in September each year.

    The yoga course follows a university-like curriculum with a progressive learning structure, where the practice & theory each week builds upon the last.

    Everyone is welcome, regardless of prior experience and physical shape. Even if you have practiced yoga before you will find a completely new depth of practice and knowledge, starting from Year 1 of the course!

    Practice

    Each class includes a practice session of approx. 75-90 minutes and consists of 3 phases:

    1. Initial awareness & warming-up exercises

    The practice begins with an initial phase of awareness and warming up – to stretch the muscles, increase flexibility, and gently prepare (physically, energetically, and mentally) to perform the various postures of ASANAS successfully.

    2. The main YOGA techniques.

    Practice can include asanas, pranayama, meditation, and other techniques taught in the course. Here we gradually learn to perceive the specific physical, energetic, mental/emotional and spiritual effects of each asana.

    3. The complete yogic relaxation

    The complete yogic relaxation is an active, conscious relaxation of the entire being. It crystallizes the results of the practice, creating long-lasting effects we can perceive even in daily life.

    Theory

    Theory (approx. 30-45 minutes) will be presented on various subjects.

    In the first year you will learn about the Law of Resonance, the practice and effects of various ASANA-s (postures), cleansing & purification techniques, and Yoga Nidra (conscious yogic sleep).

    The first year also includes an initiation into Laya Yoga – a highly efficient meditation technique using the subtle sound of a secret mantra.

    Each class also includes

    Meet the Teachers

    Carly

    As soon as she moved to New York City for university in 2006, Carly jumped into yoga in order to maintain her physical flexibility after a childhood of dancing which started at the ripe age of five. Building a successful career as an Art Director, yoga became an essential practice for her in order to reduce stress in a fast-paced life.

    Carly studied Tantra and yoga in Thailand for two years until moving to Denmark in 2017 to continue her studies there and train to be a yoga teacher.

    With her past career in a competitive corporate world, Carly is passionate about sharing the valuable keys that she has discovered in order to cultivate life-giving values like joy, fulfilment, connection, and inner peace. She teaches the yoga course in Copenhagen in order to further offer this practice that became like a lifeline for her.

    Andrea

    Andrea is a professional pianist and composer, her passion is composing music to poems of love and spirituality. She has founded a choir “Sjælens Sang” performing her compositions. Being aware that music is a process of resonance like yoga asanas and meditation, it has the ability to change our inner state.

    Andrea started practicing yoga and meditation over 20 years ago. She was delighted to experience how efficient the various yoga and meditation techniques were and found that she finally was given some tools to solve the challenges and difficulties in life.

    Noticing how daily practice would give her an inner balance and a greater happiness day by day, a deep wish has grown in Andrea to share this knowledge that is able to give so much peace and happiness in life.

    Emmeline

    Emmeline has been a practitioner of yoga and tantra since 2012, a certified Yoga Teacher since 2018 and is currently in the Atman Federation’s Tantra Teacher Training Course. She has a bachelor’s degree in Social Work, in the same time being a practitioner of various cleansing techniques and keeps workshops about health.

    As a teacher, she enthusiastically aims to share what spiritual practice can offer to anyone: profound self-understanding, a life full of love, joy and purpose, and learning from every experience on the way. She is especially intrigued by the fascinating game between consciousness and energy – for instance in couple relationships, and in the state of perfect balance within.
