First will be a self-evaluation, making it clear where each student stands as to make the next step possible to a conscious evolution. The principles learnt will be basic to how to do your yoga practice.  Things which will be covered:

  • Yogic Philosophy: the basis or inspiration to your approach 
  • Breath and Vinyasa: learning the mechanism of breath and its effects on the physical body, on the emotional body and on the mental body
  • Bandha and Posture: optimizing and understanding bandhas and their effect on one's body; bringing this understanding to the various asanas with a clear purpose of circulating the energy flow in the body
  • Drishti: bringing the state of mind that makes yoga a transformative process
  • Nutrition/Ayurveda: mixing ancient and modern views on this subject
  • Anatomy: learning very specific anatomy that goes along with the course content; basic anatomy will be part of the suggested readings
  • Esoteric Anatomy: to understand how this practice operates beyond the physical body
  • Chanting: learning basic mantras; exploring several aspects of the voice and its use in breaking through blockages in the body and as a tool for teaching
  • Pranayama: developing a pranayama practice that is suitable for each individual; learn techniques that will energize your inner awareness and enhance your lifestyle in a positive way
  • Meditation: bringing a meditative state to all our practices (various approaches will be explored)


Darby uses Seven Steps to describe his philosophy of yoga.
