to understand Yoga at a deeper level and how to apply the Yoga

the Academy: The Integral Yoga Academy of Australasia
(IYAA) was founded by Dr Swami Savitri Devi
in 1979 and exists for the promotion of greater understanding
of Yoga principles; the encouragement of these practices; to provide
a contact system among Yoga Sadhakas and aspirants irrespective
of committment to the Academy; and to provide, above all, a lead-in
to those life-enriching experiences which are part of the experience
of Yoga itself.
Academy provides Yoga training and teacher training by correspondence
through the Classical Eight Limbs of Yoga (Astanga Yoga).
over 60 years Dr Savitriananda Devi has guided students through
the science of Yoga to either become teachers or purely for personal
IYAA has no bias towards any particular school of thought, instead
the student is guided towards finding their own particular path
according to their individual characteristics.
Exercise for Body and Mind: Both Courses
are based on the timeless principles of Yoga psychology. Part
of this system recognises biological changes taking place in our
bodies as we respond to things happening to us in daily life.
To answer the needs arising from this and offer a specially formulated
series of excises and breath controls that work on both the body
and the emotions therefore, creating a state of total wellness.
Removal Techniques: IYAA schedules show the student how
to improve coping skills, remove personal “hang-ups”
and improve the powers of concentration. Powerfully effective
relaxation techniques are given; plus many simple and easy forms
of meditation techniques. Some of these meditation techniques
deal with personal issues whilst others are effortless ways to
achieve that wonderful state of inner time-out.
Health Care: To enable you to help yourself and those
under your care, simple instruction is also given in basic nutritional
and Yoga therapy. Yoga is particularly helpful in maintaining
good spinal tone, normalising blood pressure, improving sleep
patterns, improving the memory, etc.
Therapies and Spiritual Disciplines: Because these are
Integral Yoga courses, you will be introduced
to a wide range of interacting Yogic systems involving not only
physical fitness, but also music, colour therapy, aromatherapy,
reflexology, practical problem solving, and general knowledge
of the spiritual principles of Yoga (non-sectarian).
and Healing through the Psychic Centres in the Body:
With the increase of interest in the psychic side of Yoga the
training program is now extended to include Chakra Sâdhana.
Chakra Sâdhana enables you to understand how these psychic
centres work on the body and the mind as well as being psychic
transmitters. These schedules provide properly guided instructions
for safe development of these centres and how to incorporate them
into everyday life.
