Ranjan Kumar Singh

My yoga practice began at the age of eight in Jamshedpur, India. My brother enrolled me in yoga class as a way to teach me about discipline. In the beginning, my body was so inflexible that I wasn’t able to do any postures. I always dreaded going to class. Other classmates would give me a hard time and tell me that I would never be able to do yoga. I took their words as a challenge. I practiced every day until I mastered each and every asana.

As time passed, the physical practice of yoga turned into something more, it became a spiritual path. As my body began to soften, my heart, my mind and my attitude also began to soften. In 2000, I was faced with various hardships. I turned to yoga for peace and guidance through these times. When everything in the outside world was being turned upside down and falling down on me, yoga was the only thing that grounded me and offered serenity.

In 2005, I decided to dedicate my life to yoga. I was certified in Hatha Yoga from the Sports Authority of India in Patiala, Punjab, India. I also went on to continue my studies and fulfilled my postgraduate degree in yogic studies from Nalanda Open University in Patna, Bihar, India. I hope to give my students what yoga has given me: serenity, tranquility and an open, receptive heart. My classes are filled with fun, creative and unique sequences. More than just a physical journey, I hope to teach students that yoga is not just a physical 90 minutes practice every day. It’s a lifestyle. The patience, strength and discipline learned on the mat can be applied in all aspects of life off the mat.

I offer my deepest respect and gratitude to my teachers, Prabir Karmakar and CK Mishra, who have guided me for over twenty years and helped plant my feet onto my yogic path.

Course Introduction

Transition and Transformation in Hatha & Flow

Yoga transitions are poses or movements from one asana to another. Just like the individual asanas, transitions also have a purpose: they prepare the body for the next pose. Yoga transitions are crucial to your overall yoga practice because they help to maintain your structural integrity and smooth breathing in poses. That’s why you should never hastily shift from one pose to the next. Yoga transitions need to be done with mindfulness and clarity.

The key points are -

Awareness: -

Yoga transitions help you gain awareness: Often we forget to breathe in challenging asana practice. Yoga transitions are a great opportunity to regain your focus and stay present. Conscious breathing helps you to ease the pain in Asana, and allows you to move freely against the gravity. The flow of breath merge with the rhythm of your practice and helps you stay connected to your body.

Alignment: -

Yoga transitions can also be useful to improve your alignment and encourage the healthy positioning. Correct alignment prepares you to enter into asanas, and improve the steadiness when holding poses. This will make your yoga practice healthier, safer and more effective.

Preparation: -

Yoga transitions are a great way to prepare the body for the next pose. They are designed to warm up the relevant muscle groups and encourage proper form by stimulating the engagement of the muscles that will be targeted. This is why every transitional movement has its place in a yoga sequence.

Strength: -

Building strength is another great benefit of yoga transition. For example, bringing the knee towards the nose in cat pose before you step into low/high lunge. This movement engages the entire core and upper body in order to create more space to bring the foot forward, building strength in the abdominals and shoulders.

Mobility and Coordination: -

Yoga transitions also improve your mobility and coordination, and they give you more control over your body as it moves. This control encourages progress in your practice. In yoga transitions, you get lightness through engagement with control over your body and movements. Once you feel more comfortable with basic transitions, you can take your yoga transitions to the next level and try to float from one pose to the next.

Yoga provides us a system for living. The Yama and Niyama give us structure. The asana and pranayama give strength, health and vitality. Pratyahara helps us release our clinging, desire, and fear Dharana and Dhyana gives us some measure of solace and spiritual attainment, and samadhi, enlightenment in the form of connection with our authentic self, as well as connection with our own soul and Supreme soul. A true and complete Yoga practice can, and does, the complete Transformation physically, Mentally and Spiritually.

Asana practice works on physical level in the beginning. Through practice, you increase flexibilities, you develop patience, and your mind becomes steady. Slowly the practice changes your perspectives of yourself and help you realise your purpose in life. Yoga is a system for helping us to reach our full potentiality. Perfection comes naturally after consistently practice.

Transformation is a life time project. Once you step on the journey, it never ends.
