Vajra Yoga is a holistic system, which includes philosophy, psychology and various methods of body practices, with the aim to understand one’s own nature and eliminate suffering.
In the physical aspect, we are using only the correct approach to the spine (CAS): without twists, side and backward bends and hypermobility of the spine.
Working with the mind, we use psychological techniques, which have been practiced for centuries in the Eastern traditions of mind training. These are concentrational and analytical meditations, various types of visualizations and reflection on the possible causes of suffering and happiness.
On spiritual level we profess freedom and a kind attitude towards all living beings. Vajra Yoga is not a religion, followers can adhere to various spiritual views, recognizing the freedom of others.
From our point of view, spirituality is:
– personal freedom and recognition of the freedom of others,
A brief description of some of the Vajra Yoga (CAS) principles:
The key point. There is a key point in any phenomenon, action, state, or object. It is the ability to differentiate the main and secondary. In yoga this approach called Viveka
The golden rule of the correct approach to the spine in asanas: the shoulders line must be parallel to the pelvic line. Stretching, strengthening and relaxation.
Iron rule. Health depends more on what the person does not do than on what a person does. In other words, it is very important to simply avoid dangerous activities, if possible.
We are using kumbakhas in practice. It means we are eliminating inner dialogue and reaching non-duality state of mind by practicing in-breath holding.
We are using the smoothness of movements and step by step progress, whether it is asana or other practice. Smooth movement ensures control and prevents injuries. In addition, smoothness is an expression of awareness. Even simply slowing down the usual movements, we can come to awareness. The small steps in developing asanas is a necessary attribute of safe practice.
We are avoiding twists and hypermobility development of the spine and developing dexterity instead. We believe that the aspiration for hypermobility leads to trauma and pathology of the spine and results from human EGO (which is considered an obstacle to understanding one’s own nature).
