Prabhuji yoga is the method created by Avadhuta Bhaktivedanta Yogacharya Ramakrishnananda Babaji Maharaja, strictly based on the teachings of his gurus (Swami Vishnu Devananda, Bapuji, Madhana Mohan, Swami Jyotirmayananda, Ma Yoga Shakti, Swami Satchidananda, Swami Brahmananda and others.) and the holy scriptures. Prabhuji systematized different traditional yogic techniques that helped him to perfect his practice and teaching, and adapted them to the Western public.
Prabhuji Yoga promotes balance, health, and flexibility through proper diet, cleansing techniques, preparations (āyojanas), sequences (vinyāsas), postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), relaxation (śavāsana), meditation (dhyāna), as well as locks (bandhas) and seals (mudras) to direct and empower prana.
This style seeks to increase flexibility through asanas, to awaken the vital energy (prana), and to balance the energy centers (chakras) in order to heal physical and emotional pain. It puts a special emphasis on body alignment: head, spine, hips, and feet are kept aligned to promote the flow of vital energy. The preparations, or āyojanas, are specially designed to facilitate the performance of vinyāsas and asanas. Different levels of sequences (vinyāsas) aim to strengthen muscles, increase awareness of movement, and regenerate the activity of the internal organs. At the same time, it is a style of meditative yoga that encourages self-observation.
More than a type of physical yoga, it is a system that synthesizes the spiritual principles of the yogic tradition and seeks to promote holistic wellbeing on the mental, physical, and emotional level through karma yoga, bhakti yoga, hatha yoga, raja yoga, kundalini yoga, tantra yoga, and jnana yoga. Its fundamental principle is observation, and its aspiration is bliss, spiritual awakening, and the experience of our true nature.
“Hatha yoga is the path that leads us to the realization of our body as the door and the path towards ourselves…” ~ Prabhuji
