5. Step-By-Step Approach

Every aspect of Swamiji teachings follows a step by step structured approach that is easy to follow and methodical. Emphasis is placed on learning and re-learning the proceeding steps and then proceeding further. No shortcut please was his refrain for it is always better to be slow and steady than fast and sorry. The emphasis is on growing into the practice rather than forcing oneself into it and that is why the use of props and other contraptions, that make Yoga so costly today, have never been part of this tradition.
