Fort Walton Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 01, 2014
An increasing number of postural yoga teachers and students are exploring the more traditional meaning of yoga practices as methods of meditation and contemplation intended to lead to Self-realization, or enlightenment, awakening to the ever peaceful, joyous center of consciousness which is one with the absolute reality. This course is designed to be an introduction to that process, to the fact that yoga really does mean "union" of the individual self with the universal Self.
This online course has 39 lectures (mostly video) and a total of 7.5 hours of recorded media. The student will gain a clear understanding of the difference between modern postural yoga and traditional yoga, which is about meditation and contemplation. One will learn to practice meditation systematically with body, breath, conscious and unconscious mind, and to go beyond.
This course has been produced by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati and Swami Ma Tripurashakti Bharati, both of Abhyasa Ashram (http://AbhyasaAshram.org) and the meditation tradition of the Himalayan Masters as transmitted through the modern sage Swami Rama of the Himalayas.

Here are some of the early feedback about the course from seven separate students:
LS: “This course fell into my lap as I was researching something yoga related online. Anyone interested in knowing real yoga as opposed to the westernized yoga as exercise, should take the course. We are extremely fortunate to have access to this for free! Obviously, much thought and preparation toward making the practice accessible and understandable went into this presentation. Thank you. You have provided a wonderful service to the yoga community. Namaste.”
SC: “I would highly recommend this course to anyone that wants to begin to systematically work towards self-realization. All the elements necessary to begin that journey are included. It's well thought out and well executed. Many thanks for your hard work in this offering.”
LR: “Listen! This is everything that you want to know perfectly served up with gentle clarity. There is no need to wait, just pull up a soft chair. Take the course! You will love yourself for it!”
LP: “This course is the ultimate guide to exploring inside! Great comprehensive instruction in philosophy and practice along with guided practices that provide direct experience and animations that give an excellent visual perspective of Yoga Meditation and philosophy. I recommend it highly to anyone who wishes to learn more about meditation and how to work with the mind. Thank you to Abhyasa Ashram and to the instructors, Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati and Swami Ma Tripurashakti Bharati for your loving time and effort in creating this course.”
AL: “Best complete overview of Yoga meditation. Well structured course that gives you all the essential ingredients to understand and seriously start the journey of self discovery. Go for it! It’s what you always really wanted.”
LG: “Infinite Stars. Genuinely Got the 0.01 second of Glimpse... Now Practice Practice Practice... The twinkle in Swamiji's eyes when he looks at the viewers is indescribable... Blessed... Thanks.”
VA: “In a world where the traditional teachings of yoga are being watered down, Swami Jnaneshvara has provided us with a course that does not compromise. In order to adjust to the realities of modern life, many teachers have given us only bits and pieces of the Big Picture. Not so with Swami Jnaneshvara who provides us with the entire system from beginning to end, in a manner that is easy to follow.”
