Transformational Yoga is a complex of methods aimed at physical health improvement both with emotional and mental balancing and spiritual purity achievement. This is a system of exercises that helps a person to alter on a different levels of being. Transformation involves physical and subtle bodies and although some of the methods are well-known they are still the part of new and integrated system.
Why does it work? In brief, this system allows a person to create a direct connection with Ātman or “true self” in a short term while opening inner wisdom and enlightenment. Such changes require discipline, time, concentration and intense work. Those who use instruments of the school observe changes in all of the aspects of daily life. Practicing asanas, working with chakras, mantra chanting, pranayama and meditation are essential for body cleansing, emotional balance and concentration growth. Moreover, they raise a level of spirituality.
Transformational Yoga is a contemporary embodiment of traditional yoga practices. It reaches far beyond the practice of physical exercises. Suggesting methods for valuable life, Transformational Yoga takes into account physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of health. This system works on the inner level through stimulation of Kundalini energy which moves upward through chakras, purifying and arousing subtle bodies.
Transformational Yoga combines techniques of various yoga systems to reach desirable results in a short term.
Awaking all five bodies and seven chakras, practitioner changes the state of physical health, becomes more endurant and reaches emotional and mental balance. The feeling of unconditional love and faith as well as a connection with higher states of Consciousness become a true companion of practitioner.
Methods of Transformational Yoga
Asanas. Given sequences would be useful for people with any level of physical conditions – both beginners and professionals. Mainly sequences for chakras awakening and strengthening of back, abdomen and legs muscles would be in focus.
Pranayama. Breathing exercises constitute an important part of yoga practice. Due to them, concentration increases, quality of sleep improves, reaction to stressful situations decreases. Pranayama helps to saturate a brain and also improves the body work, as the breath connects body with mind.
Mantras chanting generates vibrations which are fundamental tools for inner changes as they calm and balance a mind. Due to the vibrations consciousness grows and this develops concentration and mind’s orientation. Moreover, purification by means of mantras helps in decision-making as the situation becomes clear.
Meditation, yoga nidra and other methods of relaxation are essential parts of Transformational Yoga. This practice grants an opportunity to experience clear perception when ego dissolves and inner silence and peace are obtained.
The main difference here from other yoga systems is that above mentioned practices should be accomplished consistently while asanas being fixed for certain time. Thus, hatha-yoga is not isolated from other methods and practice includes self-observation and tracking of all five senses as well as kapalbhati and bhramari breathing techniques with mantras chanting.
But Transformational Yoga system mainly focused on the awareness to be obtained at all the levels of our being. The opportunity to remove energy blocks appears precisely when consciousness is “engaged” and “awakened” and subtle bodies are stimulated to be cleaned up. Transformational Yoga reveals the concept of chakras and their correlation with the five types of bodies.
