We have authentic programs and courses no matter where you are in your Yoga journey, even if you haven't begun the journey still. You can jump start your  Yoga practice from the comfort of your home or in person or even train to become a Yoga teacher here. It is all up to you. Even if you already have a Yoga teacher certification, you can benefit from our services, as many topics would not have been covered in such depths in your earlier study.

 

We have created  educational home study courses on various aspects of Yoga like: proper breathing, Yoga poses, chants,  Yoga-dance , and meditation. We are adding more to the list. You can check them all out here...

 

Let us begin our journey together...

Paving Way to Freedom

 _____________________________

Yoga for Happiness Academy has been volunteering for the past 10 years for the cause of the children. It donates part of all sale proceeds to BBA, a Non-Profit (www.bba.org.in), which works for the freedom and education of enslaved children.

 

Its founder, Kailash Satyarthi, won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.

 

So your investment in your "inner freedom" through these programs helps unlock the "outer freedom" of innocent children and leads to good Karma.

 

Shanthi, along with her daughter, visits these children every year to hand over the collected amount in person and to see for herself the progress made.

Breathe Right to Live Right 

_______________________ 

Humans need food, water and air to fuel their activities. While food and liquid forms are given much importance, breath through which air is consumed is given the least importance. This program fills the gap by teaching you the right way to breathe.

 

Were you always breathing this way? No! As a toddler you were breathing right. As you face life with its stresses and challenges, the breathing pattern may have changed. Now is the opportunity to ensure you are breathing right! If you are not, you can learn how to correct it.   

 

 If you do nothing else in Yoga, but just practice proper breathing for a minute or two every day, you would be doing a great lot to your body, mind, brain and spirit.

Joyful Ganesha Mantra

 _____________________________

Mantra repetition is the simplest yet most powerful technique to focus the chattering mind and calm it down.

 

You can simply listen to the tracks while in car or while cooking at home to raise the vibration level. You can also learn to chant so that the same high vibrations can emanate from you. 

 

The challenge with most chants is in getting the pronunciation of Samskritam sounds correctly.  In this download, that problem is eliminated as the chant consists of just 3 simple words.

_______________________

 

Guided meditation is  a simple way to begin your meditation practice. Many want to incorporate meditation in their life, but find it very challenging. 

 

You can now utilize the working of your brain and the power of your thoughts,  to experience and enjoy the positive effects of meditation on your body, mind, brain and spirit.  

 

 You can use the digital tracks to understand more about meditation and to relax your body completely or to relieve body pain.

YogaDhvani:

Chants for Meditation 

_______________________

Have you ever wondered why most chants are in the language of Samskritam? Do you like to know the science behind Indian deities? Have you ever wished you knew the word by word meaning of the chants,  their correct pronunciation and a means to learn them properly? Then you are in the right place.

 

YogaDhvani is a unique, Educational audio series in English, that takes you on a Divine Journey  by funneling  your energy from racing thoughts, anxiety, and worries to a single point of focus and clarity.

 

Most typical chant CDs don't educate you about the chants. They don't tell you the importance of your correct pronunciation. They leave you with the false notion that if intentions are right, mistakes don't matter. This educational CD set fills the gap left by other CDs.

YogaLaasyam: 

Yoga-Dance-Story Alchemy

_________________________________ 

Indian dance is a minor stream of Yoga and is called "Naatya Yoga" (Yoga of dance). Though the dance form is highly complex and intricate, only some poses and hand gestures (Mudraa) are adopted here while still retaining the authenticity of Yoga. 

 

The course is fun, creative and one-of-a-kind since hand Mudraas lend way to story narration while doing the poses. It is a journey on multiple levels.  

 

Most typical videos and DVDs are "Copy the Instructor" kind. This course fills the gap by providing everything you need for an independent practice. The training is completely shot outdoors, and the education is supported by visual slides.
