Ekatala Yoga Teacher Course Specialty

Most yoga schools teach only asanas (poses) and some pranayama (breathing).  What about the upper 4 limbs of Patanjali’s original Ashtanga (8-limb) yoga system, that are pratyahara (control of senses), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (oneness)?

Ekatala yoga teaches these upper four limbs of yoga based upon Patanjali's Yoga Sutra along with with the lower four limbs that are Yama, Niyama, Asana and Pranayama.

In addition, Ekatala yoga provides an individualized yoga therapy that could be applied to any body type and anyone. 

Classical yoga is not related to any religion as it was born before any religions in the world.  It is a pure study and practice without any religious color.
