New to yoga or want to refresh what you already know?
Establishing the foundations of your practice and looking for insights into the basics of yoga?
Seeking the chance to build strength and confidence and to take your practice deeper?

This 8-week course offers you the opportunity to find inspiration in an exploration of the fundamental elements of yoga. Yoga means union – cultivating a balance between the physical, the mental, the emotional and the breath. This can be achieved through practicing the 8 limbs of yoga. Taking time to adjust your habits and find this balance will reward you with a vibrant body, vital energy and a clear mind. This course offers all participants a unique opportunity to learn about the basics of yoga and by doing so, change their view on life.

In each class, several yogic themes will be combined with dynamic vinyāsa sequences, accompanied by clear alignment principles, different āsana and prāṇāyāma and also meditation and relaxation techniques. The classes will explore a range of different subjects, fusing important yogic philosophies with the findings of modern science. There will be enough time for questions and answers in each session, and also tasks for you to work on outside the classroom, helping you take the practice into your daily life.

Krishna Kumar Krishnan Yogamunīśvaradāsa grew up in a yogic family from South India and has been practicing yoga since the age of 7 in the Tamil saiva siddhāntic tradition. His experience of Western lifestyles reinforced his belief in the importance of yoga and mindfulness training for a balanced, healthy and sustainable life in the modern world, and he began exploring applying yogic philosophy as a holistic approach to life. He combines the essence of siddhayoga knowledge, that he learned from his father, with kuṇḍalinī yoga and with mindfulness, awareness and meditation techniques. Under the guidance of yogācārya Ananda Leone he also became a registered member of the Berufsverband der Yogalehrenden Deutschland (BDY) and the European Yoga Union (EYU). His yoga path has brought him to the realisation that different yoga practices suit different people and he explores his own yoga practice with acceptance, curiosity and joy. He is known for his sense of humour and dynamic teaching style, and his ability to present the ancient wisdom of saiva siddhānta in a fresh and accessible way.
