WELCOME TO YOGA & SWADYAYA

A WAY OUT OF OBSCURITY, DEPRESSION, MISERY AND DESPAIR

Can you see the color or colors of the light around you ? We cannot because when the daylights colors are combined, they become invisible. However, by using a tool like in the picture above we can easily recognize different spectral colors.

It is a little bit like our mind: Often we know that we aren’t in complete darkness, but there’s clearly something wrong in our life and even in the life of those who surround us. Other people don’t seem to struggle with that issue, but I do and along with me perhaps my kids, partner or family members.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could have a tool that makes visible what we cannot see, recognize or understand.

SWADYAYA is the tool that helps people who are willing to face and not afraid to recognize what is behind the curtain in their mind that might cause mental or psychosomatic discomfort.

WHAT DOES SWADYAYA MEAN AND HOW DOES IT RELATE TO YOGA?

The term "Swadyaya" origins are from the Sanskrit and the meaning is "self study". It is an intellectual process, part of the "Niyamas" of the philosophical teaching of yoga. It has nothing to do with physical yoga exercises, nor is it meditation, but rather a specific training, a kind of defragmentation of the psyche and mind according to certain rules and guidelines.

In practice, the Swadyaya is used to identify the burdens painfully borne from childhood and to find solutions to change the outlook on life. Changing the outlook on life means breaking down barriers, being able to open the mind and put an end to the sufferings that are often deeply rooted within us. To stop suffering is the fundamental goal of the philosophy of yoga.

MY PERSON AND MY YOGA KNOWLEDGE

My name is Christophe Frommelt and I am 50 years old and I have experienced the positive impact SWADYAYA first hand to help healing C-PTSD. For a year I studied at The Yoga Institute in Bombay, the oldest and only yoga school in the world teaching philosophy. "The Yoga Institute" and its founder Shri Yogendra have also played a major role in the renaissance of yoga, notably by contributing to the simplification of exercises and to modern psychosomatic yoga.

After completing the 200-hour basic teacher course (TTC 200), I was particularly interested in courses that focus on psychological disorders and trauma.

So I completed for 9 months the courses of Level 1, and 2 in chakra psychology and 3 and 4 in "yoga counseling" based on the principles of the "Manthan Yoga Foundation". To have more theoretical knowledge I also took the advanced 900h yoga teacher course, recognized by the Indian AYUSH ministry and which includes the certificate (TTC500). This course teaches the philosophical approach of yoga in more depth.

As part of my graduation work from the "Yoga Counseling" course in cooperation with the NGO "Swadyaya Pariwar" the "Union" project was born. “Union” aims to make psychological support available to poor people in Bombay who have suffered serious trauma. Another objective of the UNION project is to counter the pathology of narcissism in order to reduce its harmful effects.
