Hatha Yoga is a tool of unparalleled scope for the harmonization of all aspects that make up the life experience (physical, emotional and mental) and, therefore, one of the more precious than human beings has developed to achieve health and fulfillment, as well as to refine and his attention towards the awakening and development of consciousness in the form of freedom and happiness (ānanda).

Know and set of ancient techniques, Hatha Yoga has been, especially in the West, a massive popularization (occasionally through skewed versions that have little or nothing to do with its original sense) over the past decades. This popularization has been wonderful in the sense of expanding the potential of such knowledge and even to enrich it with modern (such as biomechanics, Anatomy, etc.) contributions that make yoga a living tradition evolving.

However, is not less true the fact of this popularization has resulted occasionally in economic abuse that deprive people of the possibility of awakening the wonderful potential that allows the practice of Yoga, as well as vile actions as the attempt of legally take ownership of part of this traditional heritage that, in our opinion, like the many others sane, are and must be necessarily taken and shared as common knowledge, free of all mankind heritage.

Consistent with this, since Aushadhi We feel the need, to the extent that viable within our possibilities, spread the wisdom of Yoga in the most inclusive way possible. The conception of the course is located in the Centre of our efforts in this direction"Self-management for the practice of Hatha Yoga", a seminar (in its second edition) to provide the necessary tools to all those wishing to become actively involved in the improvement of their life through a self-managed and personal practice of the ancient science of Hatha Yoga.

With the idea of promoting the self-responsibility personl (one of the crucial aspects of a healthy and harmonious self-management of our lives) and avoid the possibility that anyone who really wants to practice Yoga can create excluded, we have designed the course in such a way that their remuneration will be through a system of free price (see section below).

Aportación: Precio libre

El precio libre It is a system of alternative economy whereby each person decides, from freedom and honesty, how can and want to pay for a good or service that enjoys, not so much in terms of "commercial" bound and value exclusive (price), but as one conscious autoimplicacion, a voluntary contribution to the project in question to that of what has enjoyed can continue to exist in the future (in this case, the huge study and dedication of three persons that we teach the course, as well as the use and) Aushadhi space costs). Free means free, each decide from freedom and honesty.

The responsible practice of the free price sin embargo sí implica, en este caso, ciertos elementos para poder desarrollarse de la forma más óptima posible (libertad e irresponsabilidad no son sinónimos):

  • Implicación y responsabilidad: ten en cuenta que, por motivos de espacio, las plazas en este curso son muy limitadas (18), así pues si consigues una plaza habrás de comprometerte con la asistencia a la totalidad de las sesiones y con el pago (la cantidad que tú determines libremente). Dado que el curso tiene un desarrollo evolutivo y un sentido, nadie podrá incorporarse a él una vez iniciado, así que si ocuparas una plaza y luego dejaras de asistir le habrías negado absurdamente a otra persona la posibilidad de disfrutarlo.
  • Libertad y transparencia: Decide libremente tu aportación, disfrutando con consciencia del ejercicio de dicha libertad. Ten en cuenta que con este sistema se produce una redistribución espontánea: si tienes poco dinero no serás excluid@; si tienes más podrás pagar un precio que consideres justo e, incluso, compensar (a modo de “donativo”) por las personas que no pueden permitirse pagar mucho, apoyando así la pervivencia de este tipo de iniciativas (cuya existencia depende, en gran medida, de cómo se responda al uso responsable del precio libre). Asimismo, también puedes proponer retribuciones directas no-monetarias (trueque de algún bien o servicio que tú puedas aportarnos como forma de agradecimiento por tu aprendizaje). Cuando hayas decidido (en función de tus posibilidades y deseos teniendo en cuenta todo esto), háznoslo saber y, por favor, sé consecuente con tu decisión.
  • Methods of payment. Once you decide the free price that you want to contribute by the course and indicate that you agree to attend and contribute that amount, choose one of the following ways (again, according to your possibilities):
  • Full payment in advance.
  • Installment payment by specifying deadlines.
  • Payment by monthly installments (a flat fee determined freely for you to pay each session, responsible you of that your no-asistencia sessions you does not exempt the payment).
