The Method

The Triveni experiential teaching method integrates the profound and timeless philosophy of Master Patanjali’s Eight limbs of Yoga with creativity to serve the spiritual needs of a global modern society.

01

Yama

Ethics (restraint)

Yama is learning to work simultaneously on oneself and in the world on a causal level to generate profound and far-reaching results. Starting with non-harming, we begin to refine actions of body, speech, and mind.

02

Niyama

Commitments (observances)

Niyama is a limb of action. We undertake the niyamas to train ourselves to be active in our practice; honing our discipline, staying clear, and opening to learning are all parts of this limb.

03

Asana

Postures

Asana is the practice of physical and meditative postures to awaken the subtle body. Through focused body movements, focused breath, and focused mind, asana grants us greater access to ourselves.

04

Pranayama

Breathing exercises

Pranayama calms and controls the breath, enabling us to affect our subtle body and our mental and emotional states.

05

Pratyahara

Control of the senses

To truly enter into the deep meditative states of the inner limbs, we must first gain control of, and draw in, the senses. Pratyahara is doorway of learning to avoid distraction and preparing the mind for focus.

06

Dharana

Concentration, focus

Dharana is one of the inner limbs of Yoga – a deep practice of setting the mind, single-pointedly, on an object of our choosing.

07

Dhyana

Absorption (deep concentration, prolonged focus)

The deep practice of being able to maintain a state of meditation single-pointedly for extended periods of time.

08

Samadhi

Perfectly balanced meditation

The action and culmination of all one’s efforts in yoga. Unending, perfectly stable meditation. Both the practice and the goal.
