    LEARNING & TEACHING

    Translations and Transformations form the TWO¬†main modes of learning and teaching. Translations encourage and maintain the transformational difficulties you will need to encounter in learning Yoga and therefore yourself. From coaching to asanas classes, these are Yoga’s main areas of focus:




    1. The Relationship to Silence
    2. The Relationship to Compassion
    3. The Relationship to Action
    4. The Relationship to Mind

The Four Paths of Yoga

Study the four paths of Yoga at Silent Motion Yoga.

FOUR PATHS OF YOGA

One can approach yoga in many ways,
according to your own mind.

There are four main paths of Yoga - Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga and Jnana Yoga. Each is suited to a different temperament or approach to life. All the paths lead ultimately to the same destination - to union with Brahman or God - and the lessons of each of them need to be integrated if true wisdom is to be attained.


Swami Sivananda recognised that every Yogi, or human being for that matter, possesses and identifies with each of these elements: Intellect, heart, body and mind. He therefore advocated everyone to practice certain techniques from each path. This came to be known as the Yoga of Synthesis. He also taught that in accordance with individual temperament and taste one can emphasize the practice of certain Yogas over others..
