Yoga Natya enquiry

YogaNatya – a specialised program for Dancers.

a1000yoga has been one of the pioneers in actively designing yoga practices for the needs of a modern dancer. We have trained a large number of dancers, professionals, and amateurs in yoga under our regular yoga teacher training program including Yoga Natya training program. In the past few years, we have been yoga partners of popular and renowned Dance Academies and companies like NrityarutyaAttakkalari, and Play Practice in Bangalore.

a1000yoga has now designed a unique yoga program for dancers called  Yoga Natya, a 200-hour Yoga certification program on yoga practices and principles handpicked for dancers. The program draws immensely from Yoga and Dance Scriptures, (the Yoga Sutra and Natya Shastra) that has inspired numerous classical dance forms of India. A dance module with a fine balance of Contemporary dance and Indian Classical Dance makes this program a must for all professional dancers.

The course aims at two objects

  1. To enhance a Dancer’s experience and dance performance
  2. To equip the dancer to teach Hata Yoga to the general public

The course culminates with a grand performance of a yoga-inspired dance choreography that the students co-create as part of the course.

        Make Yoga part of Life

        The principles laid out in Patanjali’s yoga sutras dating back to 500 B.C. are still very relevant today, even in our modern information world. Yoga has evolved a lot from the days of Patanjali; it has taken different forms to meet the varying needs of practitioners all along its journey. Yoga continues to accept all changes, like the ocean accepts the river, absorbs, assimilates and grows. (A distinctive feature of sanaatan dharma of India)
