The Growth Journey in Pictures....
An End is always a new Beginning!! 01 November
Here with all delight, we conclude our October YTTC and congratulate all the students for becoming successful Yoga Teachers. Students are awarded with Certificate of accomplishment. We wish them for their future endeavors.
Group Awareness 30 October
There is a certain harmony that can be experienced when you merge your practice with that of a group. A group awareness helps you synchronise your movements with many others and create a synergy. And as you create music with your classmates, you realise a divine music which emanates from the inside and engulfs your being - Together we can!
A New Window : 29 October
Ajarya opens the windows to a whole new world! And as you take a peek through the windows, the vision expands. You will see the universe unfold before you, the beautiful Himalayas, the silent woods, the dense forests, the peaceful animals and the encouraging elements. Before you know it, you become aligned to a cosmic order!!
Not for the weak at heart : 28 October
The first week can be gruelling! Many students develop the thoughts that they should run away from the school. It is physically intensive. But all of them continue beyond the first week and continue to the end. Ajarya teachers who are experienced in the first-week phenomenon, deal with students using all their yogic wisdom and experience, and help students realise their inner strength. And then the students start growing!
Visual Presentation : 26 October
For every practise learnt, the students also learn the theory behind it. They also learn a vedic concept and a modern scientific concept parallely. This ensures that Ajarya learning / teaching / evaluation does not become antiquated. For the student, the learning is so complete that the students are able to teach lessons learnt in a visual presentation.
A family : 23 October
You are a part of the Ajarya family! The teaching staff and their family members become a part of your life once you are arrive at Ajarya. The teachers at Ajarya are very hard task masters and will ensure you learn all that is on offer. But they become friends and family immediately, involving their families too while welcoming you to the large Ajarya family!
Chakrasana : 19 October
So what you think is it that easy it seems like? Our teachers at Ajarya will make you realize that how beneficial these asanas are and how to perform them correctly with ease. Students practice such rigorous Asanas in their daily routine. One of them is Chakrasana. With lots of dedication and discipline, students manage to master these wonderful postures at Ajarya Yoga academy.
The fire ceremony : 15 October
This is the beginning of the beginning! The fire ceremony has just concluded and the priest who has conducted the ceremony has given all the participants the prasad or the sweet grace of the Gods. With sweetness in the mouth and the mind cleansed in the seething heat of the fire, sweet positive thoughts start flowing through all the innocent minds! Now, we are open-minded for all the learning!

And the class is in session! Isn't this what we are all here for? Stretch yourselves beyond the limits as our teachers help you find new limits! Absorb all the knowledge that is offered without prejudice.

Sitting cross-legged is not the easiest especially if you are not from Asia! And at Ajarya, the students have to sit down and listen to the lectures! How then can one manage? Our teachers will teach you simple techniques that will take you less than a few minutes each to help you overcome short-term bodily pain so you can become strong for the greater pain. After all, no pain, no gain!
Yoga-Practice Session : 09 October
Yoga Practice brings discipline and stability in our lives. Ajarya emphasizes on the intense practice of Yogasanas for maximum benefits and learning. Right postures and mudras are very important to perform any asana. Our yoga Teacher makes each pose very clear to the students explaining their benefits. All yoga aspiring students learn different Yoga Poses daily in Ajarya Yoga Academy.
Notice Boards : 06 October
Everything is organised! The students can see for themselves the daily schedule for the next 28 days. The notice boards also list the grades of the previous batch. A simple message that 'You are what you eat' informs the students about the possible dangers of outside food. The walls are adorned by many posters done by older Ajaryans during their course!
Opening Ceremony : 05 October
There is a fire ceremony to usher in each batch of students. The fire ceremony is called a yagna where the fire is used to carry our offerings to the Gods. This is done in the spirit of Guru-shishya tradition or the Teacher-student tradition to ensure students‚Äô course completes successfully without any obstacles. It is a very pious and sacred prayer.

Journey From Delhi to Rishikesh : 04 October
The long journey from Delhi to Rishikesh can be tiring to many others but not to these yogis as they set foot for the first time at the venue! Of course, the team of Ajarya is ever-ready with a garland and refreshing, cool drink at the gates to this wonderful paradise called Ajarya!
