Yoga in the study programme

In the study programme, you learn to consciously shape the yoga exercise in line with the new yoga will. You form ideas and express them in a yoga exercise, get to know and feel the yoga postures more consciously and develop the ability to consciously guide the body.

In addition to technical perfection, each exercise also has an expression that is appropriate to it and is supported by the meaning and mental activity that is put into it. This expression is an important part of this yoga.

The Yoga Training Days

Intensive, multiple-hour practice of āsana with concrete visualisation content

The yoga training days include an intensive yoga practice lasting several hours. It is usually organised by Heinz Grill and trained yoga teachers. Yoga exercises, the so-called āsana, are explored in depth and developed further through intensive practice, resulting in visible progress. Participation requires the study of at least one of Heinz Grill’s books. (find out more about participation and registration on: Yoga and Social Competence)

The Yoga Teacher Training

How can the yoga exercises be further developed to create forces that lead to more empowerment in daily life and at work?

The specialised training courses are offered three times a year. They are aimed at anyone who is looking to make good progress in his or her asana practice or teaching practice (yoga teachers) and who would also like to broaden and deepen relationships in life, at work and with others by developing new experiences.

Every day there is an intensive asana session lasting around three hours, as well as various lessons on philosophy, soul exercises, corrections or questions about current affairs from a yoga perspective. Heinz Grill, founder and author of the soul dimension of yoga, usually leads the asana session and moderates the event.
