The ancient science of yoga is so much vaster than just the physical postures and exercises, and the Sri Sri Yoga Level 2 program provides one with the opportunity to explore the depths of this timeless wisdom. After being introduced to the techniques of Asana, Pranayama and Meditation in the Sri Sri Yoga Level 1 program, the Level 2 program allows one to go deeper into the realm of yoga and to understand what it means to live like a yogi!
Advanced yoga does not necessarily mean that it is difficult, or only for a select few. In this program one gets a better understanding of the yoga postures, the do’s and don’ts, and how to practice them correctly, with proper symmetry and alignment. Practicing yoga in its true sense starts with listening to your body and knowing your own limitations – and respecting them. It is a journey of becoming your own best friend, and moving ahead joyfully, no matter what challenges life places in front of you.
The ancient detox and cleansing techniques like Shankha Prakshalan and Neti help one to cleanse themselves on the physical, mental and emotional levels, allowing one to improve their health, peace of mind, and regain the joy and enthusiasm that we have all known as a child. The different Pranayamas taught also have their own unique effects on the body and mind.
Profound relaxation techniques like SSaHC and deep meditations do not only have a healing effect on our body and mind, but also allow one to connect with one’s Self, the pure consciousness that is our true nature. Subtle Strengthening and Healing Contractions (SSaHC) is a new, gentle and meditative muscle contraction exercise program for strengthening and toning muscles, restoring the balance and harmony at the physical and pranic levels, decreasing chronic pains, and above all for giving one a meditative experience of oneself.
Sri Sri Yoga Level 2 is a wonderful opportunity to continue one’s journey on the path of yoga in a gentle yet profound, celebrative and joyful retreat setting.
