The Himalayan Yoga and Meditation tradition has been passed on to their students in an unbroken chain for centuries through masters from the Himalayas. Her teachings go back to the Vedic period. The Himalayan tradition combines experiential and orally transmitted knowledge from this time with the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and Tantric philosophies. The primary goal of the tradition is to make the spiritual path to recognition of the actual, true Self accessible to all who seek it. In the west, the teachings of the Himalayan Tradition were best known for Swami Rama and his disciple Swami Veda, who had scientifically researched the effects of meditation and yogic techniques and built a large network of yoga schools and teacher training institutes. They have made a great deal of their exceptional knowledge accessible to us in a great number of books. Practically speaking, the Himalayan tradition is a meditative tradition that cannot be placed within a belief or religion and is open to everyone. Within the Ayuryoga training and Ayuryoga courses we offer an introduction to different aspects of the Himalayan Yoga and Meditation Tradition. This includes the systematic steps to the experience of meditation, an individually applied form of Hatha Yoga that is linked to the knowledge of Ayurveda, breathing exercises, the conscious management of emotions and last but not least the yoga philosophy.
