A perspective on yoga philosophy in teacher Education
R. Jayakumar, R. Krishnakumar
Our Prime minister of India Narendra Modi on June 21 led thousands of people to observe the International Yoga Day at Rajpath as India broke two Guinness records for largest Yoga assembly of 35,985 at a single venue and participate from 84 nationalities. In 35 minute session that saw participants perform 21 “Asanas”. The event evinced keen participation not only nationally but even abroad. Enthusiasts were seen gathering for Yoga sessions in Beijing (china) Times Square (New York), Eiffel Tower (Paris) Sydney, Seoul and several other countries. In all philosophical and religious system of India the teacher has been given the highest place because he guides his discipline towards the ultimate goal but in the yoga system without the teacher nothing can obtained by the student, hence the place of the teacher is inevitable. Without fulfilled realization of yama and Niyama philosophical concepts, we won’t get pure realization of Asana in Astanga yoga. So, as a student or teacher we should realize the concept of systematic procedure of Yama, Niyama and Asana etc.
