Master Classes - 2022 dates will be announced soon

30 years of Yoga Practice, the understanding of the total

Hatha Yoga Pradipika - Gheranda Samhita - Shiva Samhita

With more than 30 years of yoga practice and teaching and having concluded successfully several groups of Yoga Teacher Training Courses, I am now proposing a deeper level of training but within a different concept with especific workshops directed to yoga teachers or practitioners interested in deepening their understanding and knowledge of yoga.

In this cycle of Master Classes we will study the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Shiva Samhita and the Gheranda Samhita.

 These three books are considered to be the most comprehensive treatises on hatha yoga. They are the first manuals for the practice of Hatha Yoga. The Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā is one of three classic texts on haṭha yoga, alongside the Gheranda Samhita and the Shiva Samhita. They are the most influential surviving texts on hatha yoga. Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā written by Svātmārāma, is approximately from the fourteenth century. It connects the teaching's lineage to Matsyendranath of the Nathas. Svātmārāma incorporates older Sanskrit concepts into his synthesis. Shiva Samhita is written by an unknown author. The text is addressed by the Hindu god Shiva to his consort Parvati. It is considered the most comprehensive treatise on hatha yoga, one that recommends that all householders practice and benefit from yoga. Gheranda Samhita also by un unknown author is likely a late 17th-century text, from northeast India. Structured as a teaching manual and based on a dialogue between Gheranda and Chanda. The text is organized into seven chapters and contains 351 shlokas (verses).
