AryaMarga Yoga is pleased to present the teachings of Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the 14th century master-text that details the science of the Willful Union of the Sun & Moon disks. This course is part of the 4 Yoga Teacher Training Course, which comprises of Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Samkhya Yoga, Pancha Tattva Asana Kriya and Pancha Tattva Pranayama Kriya.
By Yogī Swātmārāma’s time, (approx. 14 th -15 th Cent. AD) Raja Yoga had already become so ancient a science of Yoga, with such an inordinate number of lineages and individual Yogīs claiming their own interpretations of the system, that the original Lineage teachings of Yoga seemed at risk of disappearing from the public consciousness. Yogī Swātmārāma, out of compassion, sees the need for a clear understanding of the ancient Yogic view, it’s system and techniques, so that aspirants may overcome the perplexity born through multiple and varied interpretations of Yoga. To this end, the Clear Light on Haṭha /Haṭha Pradīpika has been composed by Yogī Swātmārāma.
