Teaching Principles & Ethics
A yoga practice is essentially a movement into wellbeing. For the establishment of this process and the immediate experience of wellbeing it is crucial to maintain and encourage the flow of energy (prana) within the system.
The postures and movements (asana) lay the foundation for specific breathing exercises (pranayama). This in turn helps clarify and calm the mental/emotional system. Too much exertion in asana will disturb and disrupt the practice of pranayama. Over-extending in pranayama will similarly create disturbance.
Yoga practice as understood here is not the attainment of difficult and unusual bodily positions or complicated extended feats of breathing. Rather, it is a uniquely individual experience of wellbeing open to all people in all situations. Fundamental to this process is the notion of adapting the yoga to the individual. This was the primary teaching of Prof. T Krishnamacharya.
