Embark With Us on the Journey of a Lifetime​

Join us for Anuttara Raja Yoga Teacher Training as we explore the traditions and roots of yoga. The in-depth training will immerse you in the history, culture, language, lineage and practice of Anuttara Raja Yoga.

Course Facilitated by: Philip Christodoulou

Anuttara Raja Training

Please read training terms and conditions in the sections below. Buy purchasing your training you are agreeing to these terms.

This course centers on the study of the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali — the essence of Raja, or Classical, Yoga.

In Part 1, students learn Sanskrit basics, psychology and philosophy that are the foundation of Anuttara Raja Yoga. We will break down each Sutra, word by word, and delve into its meaning.

Once we understand the philosophy, we have a deeper appreciation of the physiology of our body, the workings of the mind and the anatomy of movement.

Yogacarya Philip Christodoulou will guide this conversation of Bhakti Yoga, as the highest form of Yoga, through the clear and scientific lens of its philosophical substrate and not as religious dogma. As he always emphasizes, and as our Guru Parampara insists, the spiritual impetus behind religion and scientific analysis always confirms each other.

Participants will become familiar with classical Sanskrit as we chant out each verse and do guided exposition as to its meaning. If the Yoga Sutra is a “how to” reference for Raja Yoga, the Bhagavad Gita is the “why and wherefore” for Raja Yoga and Bhakti, the Yoga of Devotion as its logical outcome.

We invite all interested practitioners, seekers and teachers to come deepen their practice and understanding of the Sacred Science.

Learn the Anuttara Raja Flows and the deeper meaning behind each pose. There is a strong focus on anatomical structures and how they interact with natural forces.
