What is Yogi Satsang?
The sanskrit word ‘Satsang’ has multiple meanings. In this context we refer to it as a congregation of like minded people practicing yoga together.
What happens at Yogi Satsang?
‘Yogi Satsang’ is a non-profit initiative of Abhyasa Yoga. The classes are free for everyone. Anybody can join these classes. But on a cautious note, beginners are advised to attend the regular yoga classes for a month before being part of a yogi satsang. The objective of these sessions is to provide continued training and learning opportunity for Yoga Trainers after the completion of their course. Yogi Satsang sessions include all elements of yoga into practice. As opposed to a 1 hour regular Yoga Class, the Yogi Satsang sessions will be 3 hours long. These 3 hours would ensure that we get to practice every facet of yoga in detail and with complete awareness.
Do not be alarmed by the extent of time. Out of the 3 hours, chanting, yoga nidra and meditation take up more than half the time during the practice. Not every practice in yoga involves physical exertion like asana. Regular 1 hour yoga classes are focused on physical and mental fitness of the practitioners, whereas the yogi satsang sessions are more in tune with emotional stability, Intellectual nourishment and spiritual growth of the practitioner.
- These sessions will be conducted on every weekend (Sat & Sun) of every month at Abhyasa Yoga Institute, Madhapur, Hyderabad.
- Timings are 7-10 am.
- The list of practices for example asanas, pranayam and the dhyana technique will be provided a week in advance for reference. Click here for this week’s Yogi Satsang Practice manual.
- Each of the yogic techniques will be practiced in depth and in traditional methods.
- Please remember that theoretical discussions are NOT a part of Yogi Satsang. They purely are practice sessions. Any discussions or clarification of doubts will be made after the session privately.
- Progress in yogic techniques happens over a period of time and with sufficient experience mastery is achieved. Hence some techniques will be repeated for prolonged periods of time whereas some change once every week or every month.
