Maharishi Yoga Therapy Asanas & Pranayama

"The centuries-old medicine-predominated approach to health has failed to eliminate sickness and suffering; this is because medicine alone is too superficial to influence all the innumerable values that constitute the structure of life and its evolution. Only a holistic approach that takes into consideration all aspects of mind and body together can be successful in handling health." - Maharishi Mahesh Yogi


Maharishi Yoga Asanas are practised easily, comfortably, and naturally, without strain, force or control, slowly, and with full attention. The practice is original, authentic, holistic, systematic and natural. It is practised for about 10-15 minutes twice daily before meditation.

This set of Asanas and Pranayama provides levels of preparation that sequentially progress
from more active to quieter, from grosser to subtler effects on mind-body integration. They are
the perfect preparation for Transcendental Meditation.



Yoga has scientifically proven positive effects that include:

  • improved physiological balance and mind-body coordination
  • better digestion and sleep
  • improved heart health and metabolism
  • normalisation of blood pressure
  • easing back pain 
  • improved spinal mobility
  • muscle relaxation
  • development of alertness and power of discrimination
  • better self-reflection
  • improved concentration
  • experience of inner calmness and peace

Yoga Asanas and Pranayama

Creating physiological balance and mind-body coordination for ideal health and well-being

In this sixteen-lesson course, developed under the guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, we will explore the whole meaning and practical applications of Yoga – the science of wholeness to establish fullness of life.

This course dives deep into the understanding and practice of each yoga posture recommended in the course. For every Asana, you will learn how to perform it correctly, the profound benefits of the Asana, and the scientific research relevant to the Asana.

You will also discover how an understanding of many other fascinating areas enriches your experience of Yoga even further, including areas such as diet, breathing, Ashtanga Yoga, the eight ‘limbs’ of Yoga, the Bhagavad Gita, Vedic literature, and many others.

With profound theoretical understanding and practical training in Yoga postures in each session, this course will inspire you to include the Yoga Asanas in your daily routine. As a result, you can enjoy and experience more and more of the fullness of life.
