AryaMarga Yoga is pleased to present the teachings of Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the 14th century master-text that details the science of the Willful Union of the Sun & Moon disks. This course is part of the 4 Yoga Teacher Training Course, which comprises of Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Samkhya Yoga, Pancha Tattva Asana Kriya and Pancha Tattva Pranayama Kriya.
The word Pradipika means to shed complete light on. Complete light on what? Light on the System and Techniques of Hatha Yoga. This text was composed in the 15th century, by Yogi Svātmārāma. In the very first chapter of this masterwork, Yogi Svātmārāma clearly gives his intent behind the composition of this text. By Yogī Swātmārāma’s time, (approx. 14 th -15 th Cent. AD) Raja Yoga had already become so ancient a science of Yoga, with such an inordinate number of lineages and
individual Yogīs claiming their own interpretations of the system, that the original Lineage teachings of Yoga seemed at risk of disappearing from the public consciousness.
Yogī Swātmārāma, out of compassion, sees the need for a clear understanding of the ancient Yogic view, it’s system and techniques, so that aspirants may overcome the perplexity born through multiple and varied interpretations of Yoga. To this end, the Clear Light on Haṭha /Haṭha Pradīpika has been composed by Yogī Swātmārāma.

Founder - Shri Roshan Palat
Having pursued legal studies, Roshan Palat worked in the field of finance post completion of his degree. Introduced to the Puranas and the Upanisads at an early age due to the nature of his surroundings, increasing interest in the authentic practices of Yoga kept taking him to the birth place of all the Yogas-the Indian Himalayas. Roshan met his Guru near an alpine village a few hours hiking distance from the mountain town of Uttarkashi. Ganapati Baba’s teaching of the 4 Yogas of the ancient Mahasiddhas Lineage and the profound manner in which it was imparted changed Roshan’s life forever. Having decided to commit to his practices under Babaji, Roshan spent a further 3 years with his Guru. Being instructed to learn more about Mahakaruna / The Great Compassion and Shunyata/Emptiness, by his Guru, Roshan undertook a 3 year study into Mahayana Buddhism and the View and Practices derived by that system from the 84 Mahasiddhas. Since then he has been residing, practicing and teaching in the Tibetan town of Bir situated in the Indian mountain state of Himachal.
