Sapta Yoga International


What is Sapta Yoga™?

"There are no fetters like those of illusion (Maya), no strength like that which comes from discipline (Yoga), no friend higher than knowledge (Jnana) and no greater enemy than Egoism (Ahankara)." - Yogi Shri Gheranda.

Yogacharya Swami Sadananda Giri (Yogacharya Dr. Sushil Bhattacharya), Founder of Sapta Yoga™ International, Founder-Director of Sapta Yoga Ashram & Yogic Hospital, Kotalghosha, West Bengal, India as well Founder of Patanjali Yoga Center in Kathmandu, Nepal, travels to England, France, Germany, Grand Cayman, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Japan, Thailand, India and Nepal every year to share his happy and unique outlook on yoga.

His inspiration is the great Yogi Gheranda who in the Gheranda Samhita says: "As by learning the alphabets one can, through practice, master all the sciences, so by thoroughly practicing first the (physical) training, one acquires the Knowledge of Truth." "Like unto an unbaked earthen pot thrown in water, the body is soon decayed (in this world). Bake it hard in the fire of training in order to strengthen and purify the body."

The seven exercises which pertain to this training of the body are as follows: 

1. Sat Karmas or Purification cleanses the body for higher practice. 
(This includes Dhauti, Basti, Neti, Trataka, Nauli and Kapala Bhati). 

2. Asana or Posture gives Dridhata or strength. 

3. Mudra gives Sthirata or steadiness. (Mudras control the energy systems). 

4. Pratyahara gives Dhairyata or calmness.
(This helps to withdraw the mind from outer objects of distraction).

5. Pranayama gives Laghima or lightness. 
(Sushil says, "Some people are afraid to practice Pranayama, but there is no danger
if one receives proper instruction. It helps to purify the body and mind, helping 
to remove sickness"). 

6. Dhyana or Meditation gives Pratyakshata or perception of Self.

7. Samadhi or Self realisation.
