300 Hour Yoga TTC
The 300 hour yoga TTC is the subsequent step of 200 hour TTC. If you have completed the 200 hour TTC you can recall, and if you are a new student you can see in the description that 200 hour yoga TTC is based on fundamental principles of Abhyasa and Vairagya that we find in Yoga Sutra. The principle of Abhyasa (effort) and Vairagya (relaxation, equanimity, non-attachment) come lively on mat through Hatha Yoga in the form of ‘Ha’ and ‘Tha’. That is why hatha yoga is a springboard to Raja Yoga. Thus, in your 200 hour hatha yoga TTC you have accessed and studied Hatha yoga and walked to certain extent towards Raja Yoga, for none other than experiencing the state of stable tranquility within. This 300 hour yoga TTC is continuation to that calmness where we try to put into practice the achieved tranquility in real world affairs for real transformation.
Our Philosophy of 300 Hour Yoga TTC
300 hour yoga TTC is not just an amalgamation of extra asana, pranayama or some other yoga techniques but a sincere effort for the manifestation of the fruits of yoga in our lives. For this we further move into our spiritual journey and sail over from Astika School to Nastik school of Indian philosophy and take refuge in Buddha – The Exalted One! for an all-encompassing view of the field of human existence and enterprise. The principle remains the same. Abhyasa and Vairagya are now applied and strengthened more deeply and distinctively as we learn to observe the every single moment filled with fleeting sensations and feelings, and learn to maintain equanimity. It is a journey from Bahiranga (external) to Antaranga (internal) Yoga
When we talk about Buddha we talk about historical fact and truth dealing with the art of transformation and awakening. Here nothing is left for philosophical speculation, imagination or abstract explanation, but a concrete work on ground reality for individual’s unmasking and makeover. Taking refuge in Buddha is all about finding the answer to that basic question of Yoga – How can we find true happiness again?
