Our teaching ethos
We consider the four human classifications of yogi
It has long been known that there are four categories of ‘attribute’ or characteristics that aspirants fall into. These attributes allow anyone to follow the path of yoga.
Raja - Meditation
Karma - Service
Jnana - Mind
Bhakti - Devotion
Many paths - one goal.
We apply the logic of the rishis
We encourage our students to work within groups to apply critical thinking, to research the ancient teachings for validity and to teach and share from experience.
“Satyam eva jayati naanrutam.” Truth alone shall prevail. - Mundaka Upanishad
The Rishis (Vedic Scientists) would apply these three tests before making a proclamation or sharing a method:
It should be enunciated in the ageless scriptures (shruti)
It must have the support of reason (yukti)
It should be experienced by oneself (anubhava)
In an age where yoga has often times fallen short of encouraging teachers to know things for themselves before teaching them, we hope to address the balance, first for ourselves and secondly for our students and communities.
