Abhyasa Ashram’s online Udemy course entitled “Yoga as Meditation” has achieved a new level of success by having enrolled over 10,000 students from more than 160 countries. The vast majority of the reviews are 5 of 5 stars. Yoga is most known as a physical fitness routine, while it still retains its more traditional meaning as a process of meditation and contemplation leading to the realization of the union (“yoga”) of the individual self and the universal Self, often known as Self-realization or enlightenment.
ABOUT THE COURSE:
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 70 lectures 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 (AbhyasaAshram.org) and the meditation tradition of the Himalayan Masters as transmitted through the modern sage Swami Rama of the Himalayas.
This “Yoga as Meditation” course is of most benefit to teachers and students of postural yoga who want to go a step further into the more traditional practice of yoga as meditation. It is also of interest to Yoga practitioners whose first encounter with Yoga has been as meditation, rather than as a physical practice, as well as
people who already have any kind of background in yoga and/or meditation.

RECENT FEEDBACK ABOUT THE COURSE:
AC: “This course is a gem of authenticity. It explains the timeless practice of traditional hatha yoga in simple terms. It's difficult to find a teacher these days who embraces all aspects of the practice as necessary components of a complete and pure system. So many pseudo gurus claim to have improved yoga in some way by creating their own "style", or claim that they have access to some secret knowledge, to which only an elite group of initiates hold the key. In reality, this practice was meant for everyone, and anyone can access it at any time. Swami J's knowledge comes from years of study and first-hand experience. He is humble and explains everything in an organized and down to earth manner.”
LF: “ What a wonderful course! It offers a wealth of information on the true meaning of yoga and how to approach it. The lectures are clear and concise. Some of the video clips are the best I've seen. It has helped my meditation practice enormously and will continue to do so in the future. Can't wait to start the next course by the same instructors. Thank you.”
KT: “I am thoroughly enjoying this course. I am interested in Vedanta but this course breaks down a lot of the main points about meditation very easily, yet still stretches the mind. I would highly recommend this course to serious students wanting to learn true meditation. My expansion and growth are really growing exponential. I am really enjoying everything about this course.”
CA: This is one of the greatest class I have been in. Meditation practice and information goes far beyond any spectation, so anyone out there wanting to learn how to be mindful and meditative, I would definitely recommend to benefit from this teaching.”
