Course Description

Practicing and studying Yoga with Perumal is for personal growth, health, energy optimization and stress reduction

This Course 2 Series is the second part of a 3 Part Series. If you are interested in registering for all 3 Courses, please click here. We recommend that you start with Course 1 and proceed to this intermediate course, of Course 2.

In this Course 2 Series, you will be taken through a step-by-step, progressive approach to allow you to achieve the right state of flow in order to improve mobility, breathing and circulation while strengthening muscles, tendons and ligaments leading to genuine mental and physical well-being. If you practise these videos, you should feel results of calm and clarity along with highly increased energy while experiencing stress reduction.

Yoga with Perumal is made up of 6 parts that act as an underlying fixed foundation. The 6 parts of Yoga with Perumal are pranayama, preparatory, salutation, strength, stretching and meditation. Each part follows a particular order to act as synergistic to the other. Whether you are taking Course 1, 2, or 3 of the series, each course includes a combinaton of these six parts for your total training. The most important aspect of Yoga with Perumal is the ability to grow progressively from yoga forms and a sequence that may be followed at one’s own pace from beginner through advanced. Again, please go at your own pace!

Each video lecture is designed to give you the most comprehensive view of each pose since I provide 3 different camera angles for all asana (postures) to show you a lateral, frontal, and overhead perspective. Each video also has supportive text to reveal any hidden aspects of yoga and is accompanied by a supportive manual for total understanding of each pose. 

In this course, you will find: 

  • the complete Course Series 2, which includes 4 long progressive lessons named 2A - 2D.
  • the complete Short Series on Pranayama, Preparatory, Saluation and Stretching.
  • amazingly detailed manuals for both Course 2A - 2D and of the Short series to provide additional information on the video lessons.

The Course Series 2 is a step-by-step development form that progresses from least challenging to most dynamic postures. Course 2A - 2D videos areapproximately 45 - 60 minutes in length so if you only have 5-25 minutes of practise time, work with the Short Series. It is always best to start at the beginning of each Short Series before going to the higher levels. 

Once you have mastered Course 1 & 2, I hope you will continue your practice with the final course series on Course 3, and continue mastering the Short Series that is found in each of the different courses. 

Thank you for your interest in Yoga with Perumal and I hope you enjoy the series!

Welcome to Yoga with Perumal!

Section 1: Course Overview
03:06

Dynamic:
Dynamic implies an active changing style that is vigorous and purposeful.  It means to be full of energy and enthusiasm while undergoing change / development.

Progressive:
Progressive implies an informal, unrigged method of development that is gradual. There is an  underlying foundation of Pranayama, Preparation, Sun Salutation, Strengthening, Stretching and Meditation or Relaxation. Using this foundation the practice experiences gradual change throughout the Course Series 1A - 1D, 2A - 2D and 3A - 3D. Progressive also implies a gradual increase in intensity. Yoga with Perumal starts off light and increases gradually in intensity until an intensity threshold is achieved prior to any stretching.
Fusion:
Fusion is the merging or blending of two or more things in the physical and  non-physical realms. Yoga with Perumal is the blend of various yoga styles, systems  and ideas. It is the conjunction point of these that are searched out, noted and  expressed in a synergistic way.

Instructor Biography


Perumal Koshy

International Yoga Teacher
Founder of one of the first didactic yoga web channels

Indian born yoga teacher Perumal Koshy is one of Europe and North Africa's leading teachers, for more than 10 years he has instructed classes, seminars and retreats while developing high caliber videos through USA, England, Italy, Spain and Morocco. Yoga Journal Italy Esprit Yoga France and Yoga Magazine Holland frequently publish articles authored by Perumal.

Perumal's teaching career began under his Kung-Fu master during his teens while living in Los Angeles. After 10 years of practicing and instructing martial arts a yoga master guided him into yoga thus began Perumal's journey of inner discovery through this ancient discipline. A journey that has taken him across India, Europe and America, whereby Perumal has been able to capture the essence and benefits of the world's many yoga styles and forms, leading him to develop “Dynamic Progressive Fusion Yoga".

Mr. Perumal Koshy's comment:
"For years, my yoga students requested lesson plans to follow on their own and from the comfort of their home, office or hotel room. So began the development of lesson plans. These started as word documents which then evolved into pictorial PowerPoint presentations. Beyond just flat images I wanted my students to access the videos from any computer with an internet connection. I envisioned online yoga videos that would show in great detail the intricate technique of my instructions combined with easy to follow step by step lessons in a progressive manner at the pace of the student.

“In 2008 I was fortunate enough to meet Film Producer Miss Ines Stephan. Miss Stephan had produced an incredible array of international and humanitarian film projects. Although I saw the technical quality of Miss Stephan's work as the perfect outfit for the detail I desired on the yoga channel, I was even more deeply moved by her background with spiritual and social endeavors. Projects such as Ines' collaboration with his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet for a documentary film series, “What's So Hard About Peace," and her organization of a world peace conference in Rome 2003 through 2005, were just two of such endeavors that acted as a catalyst to our cooperation. Together, I knew we would produce the online, yet personal yoga experience that any serious yoga student would wish to follow."
