PMT Global, the international association of PMT alumnae provides logistic and placement support.
A daily 2-Hour session with walk-ins and those who sign up for short duration packages also helps correct the distorted perception of Yoga among larger audiences.
People need healing and meditation can heal them.
However, most people on the spiritual path face a challenge. When we sit to meditate and close our eyes the mind starts racing all the more. We are unable to focus.
Why does this happen? The answer is in Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, the source scripture of all kinds of yoga.. Maharshi Patanjali approaches yoga as a eight step (limb) process Yama (moral codes), Niyama (Self-discipline), Asana (Yogic postures), Pranayama (expanding the breath/consciousness), Pratyahara (sense-withdrawal), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (absorption/liberation). The first four limbs are called Bahir (outer) yoga and next four Antar (inner) yoga. Ashta in Sanskrit means eight and anga means limb. Hence Ashtanga..This is the original Ashtanga yoga also called Raja Yoga or Aadi Yoga,
Now unless one is adept in outer yoga the inner yoga that includes meditation just cannot happen. This is the problem. With too many distortion and hundreds of so called yoga styles Yama and Niyama, the foundation of yogic life have been almost forgotten. Asana that Patjanjali deined as sthiram sukham asanam (a steady and comfortable posture) for practicing inner yoga have been distorted and destroyed by using external force, props and mixing them with Bandhas, a highly advanced stand-alone Tantrik practice that acts on Vigyanmaya Kosha (psychic Sheath). Vinyasa which meant synchronizing breath and consciousness with physical movement is today a separate style.
With such blatant distortions yoga has lost its meaning and purpose. It has become more of aerobics.
Swamiji through his Pushkar Meditation temple is trying to help people understand and imbibe the first four limbs that lead to fifth Pratyahara Then the one week Therapeutic Immersion takes them deeper into practice of inner yoga or Samyam.
Mudra, Mantra and Bandha are used as complimentary practices to induce Pratyahara as evolved and advocated by sages and yogis.
