The so-called Pythagoras Theorem - was worked out earlier by the Indian Mathematician Baudhayana, in his written treatise the Baudhayana Shulba Sutra of the 6th Century BCE. He described it as “the area produced by the diagonal of a rectangle is equal to the sum of the area produced by it on two sides”. The theorem was enunciated by Euclid but attributed to Pythagoras by Greek writers.


YOU SHOULD NOT PRACTICE PRANAYAMAS OR ANY YOGA EXERCISES WITHOUT FIRST OBTAINING PROPER GUIDANCE AND TRAINING. INITIALLY IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOURSELF TO BE OBSERVED AND MONITORED OVER A SET NUMBER OF LESSONS BY A PROFESSIONAL PRACTITIONER. IT IS YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT YOU OBTAIN THIS GUIDANCE OVER A REASONABLE PERIOD OF TIME.

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE OR WITHDRAW OUR TRAINING SERVCE IF WE FEEL THAT YOU ARE NOT COMMITTING TO A RECOMMENDED PROGRAMME FOR RECOVERY OR TRAINING. WE DO NOT TEACH ON AN AD-HOC BASIS SUCH AS A LESSON OR TWO PER WEEK AS OUR EXPERIENCE SHOWS THAT IT SIMPLY DOES NOT WORK SUFFICIENTLY WELL FOR YOU TO REALISE THE CORE BENEFITS. YOU MUST COMMIT TO AN INTENSE COURSE OF LEARNING AS MENTIONED BELOW.

HENCE IT IS OUR NON-NEGOTIABLE STIPULATION THAT ONE SHOULD COMMIT TO BOOKING A MINIMUM OF 10 LESSONS WITH THE FIRST 7 LESSONS BEING CONTINUOUS DAYS. EACH LESSON SHOULD TYPICALLY BE OF 90 MINUTES DURATION. THEREAFTER WE CAN CONFIDENTLY ALLOW YOU TO COMMENCE INDEPENDENT UNSUPERVISED PRACTISE OF SOME OF THESE BREATHING TECHNIQUES. IDEALLY WE RECOMMEND 14 LESSONS IN 7 DAYS - AS MORNING AND EVENING LESSONS OF 90 MINUTES EACH - HOWEVER THESE 14 INTENSE LESSONS COULD BE TAKEN OVER 2 WEEKS AS A LESSON PER DAY. 

YOU MAY ALSO REQUIRE SOME SUPERVISED LESSONS FOR A SET PERIOD THEREAFTER (TYPICALLY TWO A WEEK) TO ENSURE YOUR TECHNIQUES ARE STILL CORRECT. THIS COULD GRADUALLY BE BROUGHT DOWN TO A LESSON PER WEEK OR PER MONTH.

IF YOU HAVE NEVER LEARNT PRANAYAMAS BEFORE OR IT IS NOTED THAT YOUR PREVIOUSLY LEARNT PRACTISE WAS INCORRECT THEN WE WILL NOT INITIATE A TRAINING PROGRAMME UNLESS YOU AGREE TO THE ABOVE CONDITION AND COMMIT TO A DEDICATED LEARNING PROGRAMME TO CORRECT YOURSELF. OUR TEACHING EXPERIENCE TELLS US THAT TYPICALLY 90% PLUS OF PEOPLE WHO SIMPLY LEARN THE PRANAYAMAS THROUGH MEDIA OR DVD’S, WITH LITTLE OR NO PERSONAL TUITION, TEND TO PRACTISE INCORRECTLY DUE TO BAD AND SOMETIMES DAMAGING HABITS. CONSEQUENTLY, SUCH PEOPLE FAIL TO REALISE THE FULL POTENTIAL AND BENEFITS OF GOOD PRACTISE. OUR EXPERIENCE SHOWS THAT PRANAYAMAS ARE BEST LEARNT ONE ON ONE OR IN A SMALL GROUP WITH A TEACHER RATIO OF 1 TO 8 PUPILS.

REMEMBER THERE IS A RISK OF INDUCING CERTAIN SIDE EFFECTS IF PRACTISED INCORRECTLY. YOUR DIVINE YOGA TEACHER WILL CONFIRM TO YOU WHEN THEY FEEL CONFIDENT YOU ARE ABLE TO BEGIN SELF PRACTISE.

ALWAYS CONSULT A MEDICAL PRACTITIONER BEFORE COMMENCING ANY EXERCISE REGIME. YOU MUST UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO INFORM YOUR DIVINE YOGA TEACHER OF ANY MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR CHANGES IN YOUR HEALTH (PAST, PRESENT OR ON-GOING) WHICH MIGHT AFFECT YOUR ABILITY TO EXERCISE SAFELY AND WITH MINIMAL RISK OF INJURY.
