What is a relationship? A relationship is when you invest energy and time to know someone else and this could include a parent/child relationship, mother/son relationship or brother/sister relationship. When we think of the word ‘relationship’, the first thing that comes to mind is a man/woman relationship. The reason for this is because we direct our maximum amount of energy toward such relationships.
The most important thing to do before we endeavour into any relationship is to invest the time in getting to know ourselves. In other words, we should build a relationship with our very self first! When we invest that time in knowing ourselves, we become the ultimate companion for ourselves Webedcome our own best friend.
In the Bible there is a saying, ‘Be full unto your self’. Being full unto your self means that you are in a very deep intimate relationship with yourself and therefore, your whole energy is available to you. Instead of begging or seeking love from another person, in any relationship, love becomes an outpouring in you. It simply overflows in you.
So how does one invest time in themselves? How does one get to know themselves? The answer is through yoga and meditation.
This workshop is a beautiful way to initiate and kindle the relationship with your self. During the four- hour workshop you will;
– Gain an understanding as to why we struggle in many of our relationships
– Learn how our negative emotions play a major role in affecting the strength and length of our relationships
– Address the two major energy centres (chakras) that can affect our relationships by cleansing and energizing them through dhyana (meditation), asana (postures) and pranayama (breath control techniques) practices.
The cost of this workshop is USD 50.
The next blissful relationships workshop to be announced.

We have teachers who are trained to conduct classes in Nithya Yoga for Kids.
”Every child is a flower waiting to bloom and radiate its own unique beauty and fragrance. Children are born in the blissful state of yoga. Facilitating this natural expression is the sole purpose of Nithya Yoga. Children are encouraged to express their inherent knowledge, intelligence, creativity, love and bliss”.
Nithya Yoga for Kids is a fun, dynamic and blissful 30 – 45 minute yoga session. Children are taught how to breathe with movement, practice Ananda Surya Namaskar (blissful sun salutation) and are given the opportunity to practice a variety of animal asanas (postures) with an intention to imbibe the qualities of those particular animals (e.g. the grace of an eagle (garudasana), the fearlessness of a lion (simhasana) and the agility of a cat (marjarasana)).
The session is aimed at encouraging children to express themselves, promote grace, strengthen their bodies and awaken their inner intelligence.
The Nithya Yoga for Wellness Workshop (Weight Management), teaches us through yoga and Vedic wisdom, how all can maintain a healthy weight. The reason why there is an increasing epidemic of weight control in the West is because we are taught to address the problem only through diet and exercise. Vedic culture on the other hand looks at weight management in three levels. When we only address the body through diet and exercise, we are only addressing one third of the problem.
The workshop provides insight to all participants that we are in fact made up of matter (body), mind and Being (spirit) and how success in managing weight can be experienced when one understands and knows how to address all three aspects of our make-up.
The workshop also includes:
• An understanding of the negative emotions (in relation to our major energy centres (chakras)) that disturb our Being and cause us to overeat or under-eat.
• How to cook, what to eat, when to eat, how to eat in terms of the ancient Vedic health system – Ayurveda.
• A beautiful dhyana (meditation), asana (body postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) practice that addresses (cleanses and energizes) the three major chakras (energy centres) that are responsible for weight management.
Cost: The four hour workshop costs USD 50.
Next weight management workshop to be announced.

Our Nithya Yoga Travel Study Tour is called, ‘In the Footsteps of Patanjali’.
This journey is not the usual tourist journey that everybody is familiar with. As much as it is about experiencing the richness of the culture, the customs, the traditions and people of South India, it is about experiencing the richness of the inner space too. Any one who has been present in our tour has gone through extraordinary experiences…totally transformative by nature. Our participants experience what it means when ParamahamsaNithyananda says, ‘Live Patanjali’s spirit. Live Patanjalis body language’. Nithya Yoga is not just about asanas and pranayama (which is the portable knowledge), but about the psychological revolution which is the non-portable experience.
The features of this program include;
• A chance to experience the energy of the NithyanandaDhyanapeetam Ashram in Bangalore at the commencement and the conclusion of the program.
• The opportunity to spend time in the spiritual incubator of India and Nithyananda’s birth place – Tiruvannamalai.
• Guided tour and circumbulation of the revered hill (embodiment of Lord Shiva) Arunachala, in Tiruvannamalai.
• Guided tours of the holy sites (temples) where it is said Patanjali had a presence, including his birthplace – Chidambaram.
• In depth learning about the great sage Patanjali and his ancient teachings in the atmosphere of these sacred sites.
• Opportunities to sightsee, shop and experience the diversity and culture of each city or village visited.
• Daily sessions of Nithya Yoga and meditation.
• Comfortable air conditioned transport and top-end accommodation will be provided.
Is the travel study tour suitable for any person of any age?
Yes, we have taken senior devotees on the tour before. Sometimes there is a little bit of walking required throughout the tour and in quite high temperatures, so we ask that anyone senior who is planning to attend the travel study, check with their doctor first as to whether their condition and health will cope up.
What is the accommodation like throughout the tour?
We endeavour to find the best possible accommodation for our participants in each city we visit. We say that the cost includes ‘top-end’ accommodation. Please remember however, a top-end standard will be different in India compared to a ‘top-end’ standard you will see in Western countries.
All of the places you are accommodated are comfortable, clean, air-conditioned and safe.
What kind of food is provided throughout the tour?
The food provided is sattvic (freshly cooked and usually without green chillis, garlic and onions). Fresh fruit is provided and also water bottles.
The participant’s food is covered in the expense and they can request for any special food if it is within reason.
Are there any certain immunisations I should plan to have before coming to India?
Each country prescribes different immunisations to protect against disease. It is best to check with your doctor what immunisations or boosters you may require before travelling to India.
Upcoming Travel Study Tours
Upcoming Travel Study Tour to be announced.
The Nithya Yoga Practice, is a beautifully structured ninety minute class that includes most traditional yogic practices including asana (body postures), pranayama (breath control techniques), mudra (hand gestures) andsivasana (relaxtion). In total, we have ten different techniques that we practice in a Nithya Yoga class:
Nithya Yoga classes are conducted frequently in various parts of the world where we have certified teachers.
- Is ‘Nithya Yoga for Being’ suitable for beginners?
Yes the ‘Nithya Yoga for Being’ class is suitable for all levels, whether you are brand new to yoga or at an intermediate or advanced level.
- What is the duration of a Nithya Yoga class?
The Nithya Yoga for Being class has a duration of 1.5 hours – 2 hours. It is always best that students plan to be there throughout the entire duration of the class.
- Do you need to be flexible to do Nithya Yoga?
Flexibility, strength and balance are not required for someone to attend a Nithya Yoga class.
- Is it necessary to have done any other yoga practice before starting a Nithya Yoga practice?
No. Actually the less experience you have in yoga, the better and easier it will be for you to enter the Nithya Yoga class. You will be able to enter the class with a complete curiosity and an open mind and take the most out of it.
- Is there anything I need to bring to a Nithya Yoga class?
Just bring your self, an open mind and an intensity to go deeply into yourself. Apart from that, there are some general tips and etiquette you can keep in mind before coming to any class.
- We do not advocate in Nithya Yoga drinking lots of water during class. Please ensure you hydrate by drinking water one hour before you come to the class. You can bring a bottle of water, but try to start sipping only after the class finishes.
- Please come with an empty stomach; meaning after a main meal, at least give a 2 – 3 hour gap before starting your practice.
- Wear comfortable and loose clothing. Please avoid jeans, belts and any other tight fitting clothing. If you are coming to class before or after work, try to bring a change of comfortable clothes.
- We don’t advise that people who have high blood pressure, heart problems, have had recent surgery or who are pregnant to practice Nithya Yoga.
General Yoga Etiquette
- Aim to arrive at the venue where the class is being conducted at least 10 – 15 minutes early. This is the case especially if you are doing Nithya Yoga for the first time. The teacher will need you to sign a waiver and they may give you a small brief about the class. You will also get the chance to let the teacher know if you have a condition or injury that may require special instruction or modifications.
- Avoid bringing pagers, cell phones and other such items into the classroom. Remember that your Nithya Yoga class is the appointment you have made with yourself. Honour that appointment and use this time to be completely with yourself.
- If you have your own yoga mat, you can bring it along otherwise most teachers will provide mats for you.
- If you come to the class with a family member or friend, avoid standing next to them in the classroom. Again we use this class to completely go inwards and focus on ourselves. Usually when students come with others they know, they end up being a distraction for each other.
- In Nithya Yoga, we advocate highly one of the yamas in ashtanga yoga and that is aparigraha. This means ‘living with minimal things’. Avoid bringing blankets, cushions, pillows, notepads, books and other bulky items to the class. Bring the bare minimum things and put the aparigraha into practice.

Nithya Yoga is the system that was taught directly to Paramahamsa Nithyananda by a great yogi from his birth town, Tiruvannamalai in South India. Yogiraj Yogananda Puri (lovingly known as Raghupati Yogi), was the teacher responsible for preparing Nithyananda’s body and mind for enlightenment through the Nithya Yoga system. Nithyananda was under Raghupati Yogi’s care and guidance from the age of three to thirteen.
It was only after enlightenment that Nithyananda understood that he had received his training and initiation into the Science of Yoga and other spiritual matters from a yogi who had experienced the consciousness of Patanjali, the great sage who is considered the Father of Yoga, who compiled the Yoga Sutra.
In the introduction of his first Yoga Spurana Program in Vancouver, BC Canada during the YOGAM Tour 2009, Nithyananda shared:
‘I feel I have too much to talk about, too much to share, because I myself am a yogi. From a very young age, the first path I started travelling was the path of yoga. Now, everything I do, the shadow, smell and presence of yoga is always there’.
Paramahamsa Nithyananda was taught Nithya Yoga by Raghupati Yogi in the sacred prescints of Arunachaleshwara Temple itself. He was taught daily in a small stone pillared hall known as kritika mandapam.
The hall is filled with approximately 21 stone pillars. Nithyananda was taught one of the deepest truths of Patanjali by Raghupati Yogi in relation to these pillars. Apart from making him do very traditional yogic practices like asana, pranayama, dhyana, mudra , Raghupati Yogi used to ask the young Nithyananda to go into deep meditation, set an intention and climb the pillars. Nithyananda recalls, ‘He used to make me climb up and down using only one hand. He used to tie the other hand behind my back! I never understood why Raghupati Yogi made me do such a practice; I did not think it had anything to do with yoga. But it was here that Raghupati Yogi taught me the deepest truths of yoga’.
Raghupati Yogi delievered one of the core teachings of Patanjali to Nithyananda and that was, ‘The mind creates the body’. He would say, ‘With whatever intention you make your body active, that intention, that experience gets deeply recorded into your muscle memory’. Therefore by putting me in deep silence and then moving my body intensely to climb the pillars, the experience of that silence was inserted into my muscle memory and there after, that silence started radiating through my body.
