Sunyoga has a total of seven levels of courses. It is necessary to remember that practice precedes theory for gaining understanding. There are also guidelines for teaching in Sunyoga. In general, the teacher should be well grounded in practical experience to inspire confidence in the student of the specific course level. The whole purpose of Sunyoga is to empower ourselves, to be able to trust our inner divine power, and to become self-sustaining, with our own inner guru taking charge. Our inner guru will start to guide us more and more, while our outer gurus will be less and less influential.

The goal of the course is to reach Dhyana stage or Sahaja Samadhi, awaken Chakras±4 and introduce a lifestyle that can sustain this higher level of awareness. This is a spiritual level beyond the full kundalini awakening and it takes us to the seventh of the eight steps in the Ashtanga Yoga.

Level IV – Higher Secondary (Advanced course)

This course is an intense 7-day-long practical course including theoretical lectures. In these seven days, we strictly follow and live the foundation of Yoga: Yama, Niyama, and Asana. The focus is on purification and on strengthening our foundation, making the experience of (Nirvikalpa) Samadhi attainable. If we are well prepared for the course, reaching Samadhi is definitely within our grasp. Nirvikalpa Samadhi is the first experience of being in a state of enlightenment and is where we learn to make a strong connection to our inner guru, our soul or higher self. This
is the final and eighth step in Ashtanga Yoga. From this stage, our inner guidance towards the higher stages of enlightenment will be more prominent and our dependence on outer gurus will slowly fade
away. We start to understand the natural flow of nature, life, and the Universe. We will realize that the significance of the individual self lies in its ability to play an important role in the infinitely bigger whole, the Creation.
