Yin Yogateacher Training: Module on Philosophy

The soul is touched by the vibrations of truth.


This week I had my first module of my new Yin Yogateacher Training I am doing at Mindful Yin & Yoga, by Helga Baumgartner. The first module was on the topic of Philosophy.

The topics were the Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, Chanting Mantras and learning Sanskritam.

The teachers were Ammaji and Swamiji, their full names are Swamini Pramananda and Swami Siddhabodhananda. The two are also the teachers of Helga. Both are based in South India and established the Purna Vidya Foundation. They teach in online courses and in their Ashram the Vedas and Sanskritam.

The teaching was done online via Zoom. From Monday to Saturday we had classes from 08:30 to 16:30.

We had two Sessions with Ammaji on Philosophy and two sessions with Swamiji on Sanskritam and Mantra Chanting. Between those we had a guided meditation with Ammaji, the day ended with a Yin Yoga class with Helga.

I can’t tell in words how beautiful this week has been and how grateful I am to have been part of this class.

Ammajis teachings touched my soul deeply. When I listened to her teachings I knew that I am right on my spiritual path and everything that happened in my life recently makes sense. She invited us to study Bhagavad Gita further, which I now will do together with other classmates online.

The teaching of Sanskritam by Swamiji was so inspiring. This language fascinates me. Even that I don’t understand the words of the mantras I can feel that I understand them with my heart. When I chant sanskrit I am feeling so peaceful and can feel the inner truth that lies within me.

Swamiji and Ammaji invited us also to visit them in their Ashram. I really hope that I am soon able to travel to India and visit them.
