Shiva Yoga

In yogic culture, Shiva is known as a God, but as the first guru or the Adi Guru. He is the adi yogi or first yogi. Out of his realisation, he became estatic and danced all over the mountains (Himalayas) or sat absolutely still. All the yogic postures (asanas) and all the dance forms originated from Shiva's cosmic dance (Shiva Tandava). It does not matter at what level of evolution a person is, and for each and every person there is a way. For every being on the planet there is a certain way that is the advantage of yoga.

Shiva yoga is a living path of inner transformation to enlightenment. Stemming from the Vedas, Shiva yoga addresses our perpetual questions of our origin, destiny and purpose, the purpose of the cosmos, love and compassion. This particular form of yoga or union is devoted to the first yogi Shiva. The practice of spiritual discipline is called sadhana.

Shiva yoga offers special techniques, used as aids and guideposts to help the students on thei path. This sadhana involves meditation, breathing techniques, postures, practice chanting, studying and selfless service (karma yoga). Shiva yoga explains that Shiva plays the role of paving the way through eliminating the impurities and obstacles of the body and mind.

Shiva Yoga Course are available in five parts: beginners level 1, beginners level 2, intermediate level, advanced level-1 and advanced level-2 which includes over 250 postures (asanas), different breathing techniques (pranayama), meditation and purification practice (kriyas).
