Literature in class

During classes we mainly use the books of grandmaster Śri Yogācārya Ajīta Mahārāja from the Rāja Yoga Institute, Ilpendam, the Netherlands (an idyllic village just outside of Amsterdam).

The value of the content of these books is unprecedented and acknowledged by the International Yoga Federation (IYF). The IYF serves the interests of 400 million Yoga practitioners worldwide and protects the quality of yoga education. Ajita received an honorary membership in 2003 for his exceptional training. Next to that he is one of the main advisors for the Federation and chairman of the European Yoga Council.

Subtle Anatomy

The human being does not only consist of a physical body. Everybody knows that there is also thought, emotion an intuition, but until now nobody was able to tell you clearly how these aspects of energy fit together. Nobody was aware of the exact relation of spirit and matter. Ajita has received these teachings about the principles of life piece by piece in a wonderful manner. The information flow started in April 1987 because he wished to know what the relation was between energy-bodies and Chakras. Through these teachings, he offers you this precious spiritual treasure.

Download his free book "Subtle Anatomy" and enjoy of this introduction to the revolutionary knowledge of immortality.

Hatha Yoga Pradipika

As a result, Ajita also discovered in 1989 the true meaning of the old Yoga scripture called the "Hatha Yoga Pradipika", the bible of Hatha Yoga, written by the sage Svatmarama. It appears that the book explains how you can control life and reach immortality. During many years Ajita successfully tested the validity of this astonishing discovery. Because he is now completely sure that it is the truth, he can offer you this most precious spiritual treasure. But naturally you need the supervision of an expert teacher to access this material. Only then your success is guaranteed. So, please come to Ajita's Professional Yoga Training. This knowledge is meant for all men of good will. It will help solve all health problems on earth, and you can be part of this transformation.
