What is Divya Yoga?

Divya is the Sanksrit term for “divine,” “fate” or “fortune.” Within yoga philosophy, divya is often refered to divya-drishti which means divine insight. Once a yogi attains Divya-drishti it helps them to communicate and connect with the Divine and also enables them to see into the future as well as the past.

Divya Yoga is an amalgam of the ancient traditional practice of hatha yoga and a contemporary and modern method of bodywork called Heller work. Divya yoga was initially developed by Divya Aanand (Daryl Vansier) and has been recognized by the Yoga Alliance. It has become highly popular in modern time and is carried out in a number of studios as well as at spiritual retreats.

Divya yoga is primarily divided into four segments, with each segment focusing on a specific part of the body or other aspect of achieving the spiritual and physical advances offered by yoga. The first module focuses on the “sleeve” of the body, whereas the second one on the “core” structures, and the third on the balancing of the feminine and masculine energies, and the last module on the integration of all the foregoing parts.

What are the Main Asanas in Divya Yoga?

Let us learn more about the concept of Divya yoga asanas in detail below.

Patanjali Divya yoga can be practiced by people of all age groups. It is usually started with few warm up asanas and suryanamaskara’s followed by various combinations of asanas, poses and exercises. Patanjali Divya yoga also practices mudras, pranayamas and micro exercises which benefit the eyes, fingers, toes, face and neck. Divya yoga is ended with Shavasana.

According to Ramdev, ‘Yoga is a marvelous means of exercising, stretching, and relaxing the body/mind so it can be a healthy and long-lived. It helps in the co-ordination of the body, mind and soul’.

Some of the asanas that constitute Divya yoga are:

Baddha Padmasana: Baddha Padmasana is also known as locked lotus pose. In Sanskrit, “Baddha” means bound or locked.

Bhujangasana: Bhujangasana resembles the raised hood of a cobra, hence it is also known as the Cobra Pose.

Dhanurasana: As the name suggests Dhanurasana is given its name due to the shape the body takes while performing it – that of a bow. Dhanu means bow.

Halasana: The pose of the body while performing this asana looks like that of a typical plow, hence the name Halasana.

Kukkutasana: In Sanskrit Kukkut means Cock or Rooster, this asana has been mentioned in antiquated sacred yoga texts like the Gheranda Samhita and Hatha Yoga Pradeepika. It is particularly a difficult Pose that requires immense arms power and takes a lot of time and practice to perfect this asana.

Saryangasana: ‘Sarv’ means all; ‘anga’ means part of a body. Sarvangasana is a yoga pose wherein the whole body is balanced on the shoulders.

Siddhasana: In Sanskrit ‘Siddha’ means ‘accomplished’ or an ‘adept’ and ‘asana’ means a ‘pose’. Siddhasana is mentioned as one of the four most powerful sitting poses suited for meditation in the Hatha Yoga text Hatha Yoga Pradeepika.

Vajrasana: This diamond pose is also called Adamintine Pose. It takes its name from the Sanskrit word Vajra (वज्), which means diamond or thunderbolt and as the name suggests it is a kneeling pose. Breathing exercises like Pranayama, Kapalabhati, and Anulon Vilom are usually done while sitting in this position, and in doing so it is said that, the body becomes as strong as a diamond.
