Apanaveda’s philosophy is based on the 8 limbs of Raja yoga to create a yoga class where its participants feel completely comfortable and cared for; that they understand exactly what is happening to the physical body in asanas with confident guidance from a compassionate and knowledgeable teacher.

We believe that with an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, breathing and mindfulness, Apanaveda graduates will be able to teach yoga in a sincere, safe and holistic manner. It is paramount that Apanaveda teachers achieve an in-depth knowledge of both the skeletal and muscular bodies to intellectually accommodate every student with total awareness of individual limitations and the confidence to adjust bodies accordingly.

Apanaveda students will receive Diploma level Pranayama tuition on this course and therefore will be able to teach this to a high standard. Pranayama connects the mind and body and opens up the potential for increased energy and vitality of the practice. Breathing rhythms will then enhance awareness of the subtle vibrations of prana which stabilise the energetic body in preparation for meditation to transcend into deeper levels of consciousness.

Understanding the 8 limbs of Raja yoga, and knowing how each are interrelated and influence each other, will give students the ability to teach in a caring and educational way. The awareness of compassion, contentment, non-judgement and acceptance whilst teaching, is essential, so that the yoga class pupils are at ease with their bodies and can focus their minds on how they feel in class rather than how they look. We feel that students will wholeheartedly embrace the philosophy of yoga and find their dharma to pursue their own creative authentic teaching.

This in turn will give rise to the whole meaning of yoga, “the restraint of the modifications of the mind-stuff” (Patanjali), so the steadiness of the mind is essential in creating the quality of practice needed to benefit fully. This is an integral part of Apanaveda’s philosophy, to find purusha, one’s true self, in practice and teaching.

Apanaveda classes include:

* Pranayama practice in every class with breath awareness in postures.

* Postures with complete anatomical understanding and guidance on self-awareness and limitations.

* Mindfulness practice throughout the class with a guided meditation or yoga nidra at the end of each class.

* Yama and niyama awareness and guidance throughout the class.

Apanaveda yoga teachers will teach with:

An individual style inspired by:

* Knowledge and confidence

* Safety and acceptance

* Creativity and sincerity

* Integrity and compassion

This year our Yoga Teacher Training course is held in Great Bardfield, North Essex (12 miles from Stansted Airport).
