Antaranga Yoga

Antaraṅga yoga course is designed to use the itihasa-purana Mahabharata as a mirror to explore oneself. The Mahabharata, the longest epic in the world, is a timeless text and has been an integral part of the life of the people for eons. It is often considered the 5th Veda and has a vast repository of human contexts that offers one a possibility for a self- reflective exploration of their inner-worlds.

According to the Yoga sutra of Patanjali, apart from working with the body and breath through āsana & prānāyāma which is the bahiraṅga yoga, one needs to work with our mind and its patterns to bring the mind to a state of clarity. This is antaraṅga yoga and this is especially relevant given the changing and challenging external context that we find ourselves in today where the old seems to be falling away and the new is yet to come into being. antaraṅga yoga helps one to help reflect and understand the functioning of their own inner faculties that might help in bringing inner transformation.

Description

Learning Outcome:-

  1. Awaken the archetypal characters from the Mahabharata in one’s own life through dialogue and reflective activities
  2. Develop greater insights into one’s own psyche and patterns of the mind through an experiential engagement with the Mahabharata
  3. Experience yoga as an integral science beyond postures (asanas) or breathing techniques (pranayama).
  4. To develop the sakhi bhava (friendliness) and sakshi bhava (meditative listening) to be able to listen to our own self and the others from a deeper space
  5. To evoke healing processes within oneself

In this course, we explore our psyche using stories of characters from the Mahabharata, with an aim to bring clarity and meaning in our life. This 11-week course requires a pre-work of reading select stories from the Mahabharata and writing reflections before attending each session.

This course is not a didactic course on Mahabharata but enables one to delve into one’s psyche using the Mahabharata as a mirror into one’s mental processes. The course is dialogic and calls for a willingness to be self-reflective, the share of oneself, and listen to others sensitively. This course is not recommended for anyone who is going through treatment for any psychological illness.
