Who is This Course For?
Seeking to develop yogic consciousness?
- Beyond the process of rational intelligence, when the mind is free of thoughts, from the depths of silence opens a new consciousness. That is where the yogic consciousness begins. If you are ready for it, this course is for you.
Are you a practitioner of Sri Aurobindo's integral yoga?
- If you are aspiring to follow the path of integral yoga, working towards developing a silent mind and if you find it difficult to achieve inner silence, this course is for you.
Want to open to the force of Shakti?
- Our individual will is a very limited instrument. It is only when we open to the force of divine Shakti descending from above, our human nature can be successfully transformed. If you are looking for a way to do this, Anahata is for you.
Evolve. Action. Community.

The Anahata course, especially the Q&A sessions with Manoj, helped me develop a deeper understanding of Integral Yoga. Manoj's very presence has a very calming effect. The practices he shared based on 30+ years of his experience are very helpful. Heartfelt gratitude to Manoj Pavitran for this lovely course.
Anahata came to my life as a blessing when I was aspiring to connect inward during the lockdown 🌻. The practices have helped me connect deeper with my body, experience silence, be calm and connect with my inner aspiration clearly. Deep gratitude Manoj da and team Purnam for the offering 🙏🌸
Frequently Asked Questions
Saturday sessions with Manoj form the backbone of the course. These Saturday sessions are imperative to attend to get the pulse of the practice and get the full benefit of the course. Every session will be a layer added to the previous one. So if you miss one it can be a bit challenging to follow up. The every day 15 minutes practice sessions from Mon - Fri are optional. Instead of the regular everyday practice, you can follow up by practising with peers during the week using recorded audio, it can help you to catch up.
90 minutes every Saturday from 5:30 - 7:00 PM IST. Every other day 1-minute practice that you can do at your own time based on the prompts we will be sending. You will be also given 10-minute audio files every week for practising at your own time. These are up to you to make use of and we highly recommend you utilise these easy means to deeper your practise and benefit the most. You will also have an opportunity to practice together for 15 minutes Monday - Friday.
