At Shriyog you are welcome to join yoga classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels, as well as yoga for senior citizens, children and patients. We recommend students to continue classes at least for a year to gain knowledge in basic theory and practice of asanas and pranayama. The syllabus is designed for the year taking into consideration the seasonal changes.
Basics of Ayurved, commonly known as Ritucharya (seasonal conduct) and deenacharya (daily conduct) are kept in mind while teaching asanas and pranayama. Guidelines for diet as per the seasons are also given in the classes. Each student is motivated to understand the subject of yog and not restrict the learning only to asanas.
