I. Module Philosophy and History


Through theoretical lessons followed by active discussion, the course describes the philosophical aspects of yoga preceded by a historical introduction. The course examines in detail the metaphysics of Darshana Sankhya and its connection with Darshana Yoga, the concepts of Prakriti, Guna, Tattva and Purusha (Atman, Brahman) are addressed. The eight members of Yoga are treated and tested. The course analyzes in class, the texts of traditional scripts such as the Rg Veda; Yoga Sutra of Patanjali; Bhagavad Gita; Taittiriya, Chandogya and Isha Upanishad; Geranda Samita; Vishuddi Magga.

 Learning objectives

1. Students will have and understanding of the history and cultural context in which the practice of Yoga is born and develops.

2. This will also lead to the identification of various types of Yoga.

3. Through the philosophical study of theoretical aspects, students will have and understanding

of the experiential goals of Yoga; students will experience how the philosophical journey is not just theory as it supports and guides the experiential one.

II. Energy Physiology Module


Through the theoretical explanation of the concepts of Prana, (Chi and Ki) and of vital energy, we follow what is the pranic path from the respiratory tract to the functioning of the Srota along the Nadi. The energy meridians are observed through the following texts: Hathaogapradipika, Charaka Samitha, Sri Tattva Chintamani, Huang Ti Nei Ching Su Wen (Yellow Emperor's Internal Medicine Classic). The description follows the experiential practice.

Learning objectives

Students will have an understanding of the dynamics of bioenergy
Through theoretical and experiential study, students will apply the concept of vital energy to both panayama and asanas and to the practice of meditation by relating it to the highest philosophical concepts that will be the objective of future experience.
III. Practice module of Yoga techniques


Through the practice of all the technical aspects of Yoga (asana, of pranayama, bandha, vipassana, dharana) supported by the knowledge of the anatomical keys and of western and eastern physiology indicated, we follow the path of formation and education of individual structures.

Learning objectives

Students acquire a casual ability to apply the techniques
Acquisition of the understanding of the laws inside the asanas and other techniques
Ability to structure the lesson
Ability to identify traits of students
Acquisition of the teaching method
IV. Meditation Module


Through the previously introduced philosophical path different states of mind are differentiated. The passage from the mind is enunciated and applied in Prakriti move, according to the law of the Gunas, from the Vritti to the mind 'Yukta', ie in the state of Yoga. The texts that give the guidelines of the path are the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Vishuddi Magga of Buddagosha

Learning objectives

The meditative state pursued is twofold: that of Samadhi (through the techniques proper to Raja Yoga, beyond Prayahara) and the Vipassana state. Through the study of Raja Yoga (Patanjali Yoga Sutras), students will identify the condition of the 'vryptic' mind in Prakriti. By applying suitable meditative supports, students will progressively approach the experience of the Samadhi states. Through the study of Buddhist meditation, by applying suitable meditative supports, students will have experience of Vipassana meditation. The 250h program is our start, where the topics listed below are dealt with for the first time sufficiently at the 'instructor' level. The 500h program is the deepening and expansion of these theoretical and practical issues at a higher level and allows access to the 500h level 'teacher'.
