The objective of the Open Yoga and these Internet Courses is describing and explaining the most difficult and vague sections of yoga in a simple and clear language to ordinary people who have never studied yoga seriously. We try as much as possible to use the minimum number of complex terms in Sanskrit. For you to understand the complex yoga terminology in an easy way we strive to present all the theoretical aspects of yoga in a commonly spoken language with clear examples from everyday life, avoiding the scientism in the presentation. Our ideal is when every person with zero knowledge of yoga could immediately without prior preparation start the course. The fact that we try to present all the materials in a clear way, does not mean that we might not present the same knowledge in a formal, difficult to understand form, available only to those who have been studying yoga and is familiar with the relevant terminology. Simply, we believe, that it is inefficient at the moment when the number of people, capable of such an approach, is negligible. We believe that in today's world, a lack of basic understanding of yoga is the most serious and intractable problem. At the same time, the relatively simple and understandable language sometimes causes harmful illusion by students, that they don't need to focus their attention and seriously work over the course material, and they just read it as entertainment literature or sometimes as exciting detective stories. Such an attitude to learning is extremely unproductive and can hardly lead a man to better understanding of yoga.
