Yoga Philosophy

नास्ति मायासमः पाशो नास्ति योगात्परं बलम् ।
नास्तिज्ञानात्परो बन्धुर्नाहंकारात्परोरिपुः ।।४।।

nāstimāyāsamaḥ pāśo nāsti yogātparam balam /
nāsti jñānātparo bandhurnāhamkārātparoripuh //4//

There is no snare like māyā (illusion), there is no strength that can supersede yoga, there is no friend greater than knowledge and there is no enemy bigger than ego.

Gheranda samhitha 1:4

4 Limbs Of Yoga

Most of us have heard about 'Ashtanga' yoga, the Eight fold path of Yoga. But did you know that most Ashtanga yogasanas are also a part of Hatha yoga?
And Hatha yoga in turn subscribes to 'Chaturanga' yoga or the 4 limbs of yoga. This is described in absolute detail in one of the most significant literature for Hatha yoga available today- Swami Svatmarama's 'Hatha Yoga Pradipika'. For any seeker wanting to know the exact science and technique behind Hatha yoga, this is a very pertinent text.
Another important text for Hatha Yoga is the 'Gherenda Samhita' which postulates 'Saptanga yoga' or the Seven limbs of yoga and is presented as a conversation between Sage Gherenda and his student Chanda Kapali.

Principles of Yoga

At HathaVidya it is our endeavor to elevate
yoga consciousness from the mere physical form of the asana, to the complete understanding of the how, why and what of attaining that particular posture and how this is just the first step in attaining Yoga (union) which is, and should be, the final goal for any spiritual seeker.

So if you are looking for clarity on such matters and dont know where to begin, we at HathaVidya are here to give you a guiding hand at understanding the essence of Yoga; not only in the academic sense with the aid of classical texts, but also by helping you to integrate the theory with your practice.


** Texts covered : 

  • Hatha Yoga Pradipika

  • Gherenda Samhita

  • Patanjali Yoga Sutra

Incorporating Yoga Philosophy into Practice

We have all heard about Ashtanga yoga. But did you know that asanas is just one of the eight limbs as prescribed by Sage Patanjali in his Patanjali Yoga Sutra? So what about the remaining seven limbs?
The complete eightfold path of Ashtanga yoga if it has to be understood and incorporated into our daily lives, we need to begin with the very first two of the eight limbs and that is, by shaping our lives according to the Yamas (social conduct) and Niyamas (personal conduct) as prescribed by Sage Patanjali in his Yoga Sutra. This text yet again, is a very very important treatise for seekers of yogic knowledge in the true sense.
