Ethical Guidelines: The ethical code, also called Yamas and Niyamas in yogic literature, is an integral part of the practice, which extends to all aspects of a practitioner’s life. The purpose of these guidelines and code of conduct is to make sure that the entire program is conducted in very conducive atmosphere in tune with true yoga traditions. Kaivalya Yoga takes a traditional approach to yoga so that students will come to understand the timeless wisdom that yoga manifests. All our teaching methods are designed so that ethical practices will be naturally understood by our students. Traditional teaching, as in this course, may differ from that in the West. Students may even find fundamental differences in the understanding of yoga from that which they have learned in the West. This should be considered before students register for our programs. Students should be open-minded and willing to learn from the ancient traditions. Modified exercises that go by the name of yoga are discouraged by Kaivalya Yoga. Yoga is not a fitness regime, but rather a lifestyle and spiritual path. Students who apply for the teacher training course or yoga retreat at Kaivalya Yoga must be willing to commit to the strict regimens as in the course schedule. These are based on age-old timeless principles of Yoga. Students should come with the attitude of learning this beautiful science of balancing.
