AomA Yoga Academy are focused on deep studying, practising and wide spreading of the 'Full Course'

Kuvalayanandaji, the first yogic scientist in the world, after investigating yoga scientifically for more than thirty years.
This program is consisted to vitalize the whole body and mind fully by stimulating systems from the most important
one in the body in its important order(nervous system => endocrine system => circulatory system => respiratory
system => spine => digestive system => excretory system etc...) by using the minimum number of basic yogic
techniques.
The main aim of it is to feel and observe body, mind phenomena and thus to realize so called full
liberation(enlightenment) from suffering and ignorance by purifying them. However, it is spotlighted as the hygiene
or the exercise for the promotion of health in modern world, because it is scientifically proved as definitely helpful

The Composing Principle
Let us try to understand the composing principle of "the Full Course." This program is composed to purify every
nook and corner of the whole body without any omission. It starts from the top of the head(central nerveous system),
the most important system in the body and trys to scan everywhere of the body in orderly fashion. Anatomically our
body can be categorized into head, trunk, spine and the limbs. The trunk can be seperated into chest cavity and
abdominal cavity. In them the most important system is of course head(brain) and then chest cavity(heart and lungs)
, spine(nervous system), abdominal cavity(digestive system and excretory system) and thus the limbs can be
considered as comparatively less important. But, in the most of body exercises or streching the main importance is
given to the exercise of arms and legs to develop skeletal muscles of the limbs.

But, this yogic program does not give much importance to the exercise to develop skeletal muscles of the arms and
legs. The most important part for exercise in the yoga is the head(nervous system). The typical techniques for it are
meditation and head standing (shirshasana). Then secondly try to regulate the endocrine glands(thyroid hormone
etc..), the messenger of the body to deliver the commands made from the brain throughout the whole body and then
in orderly fashion try to regulate heart, lungs, spine, stomach, intestine and colon, kidneys etc... It means that it is
very scientific program which is composed to regulate the more important system earlier.

Let us try to understand the composing principle of the Full Course by the diagram below.
 
Purifying Head(Nerveous System)=> Head Standing(Shirshasana)

Purifying Endocrine Glands(Thyroid) => Shoulder Standing(Sarvangasana)

Heart / Lungs(Circulatory & Respiratory) => Fish/Plough Poses(Matsyasana/ Halasana)

Purifying Spine => Back Bending Poses of the Spine(Cobra, Locust and Bow Poses)

Purifying Diaphragm => Peacock Pose(Mayurasana) / Uddiyana Bandha

Purifying Abdomen(Digestive/Excretory Systems) => Yoga Mudra / Agni Sara / Nauli

Purifying the Whole Body => Kapalabhati(The Technique to Vibrate the Whole Body)

Purifying the Congestions of Energy and Blood => Kumbhaka(Yogic Breathing)

Deep and Subtle Observation and Purification => Meditation

The Realization of Full Liberation from Suffering => Emancipation(Enlightenment)

Like this the Full Course is composed as to help the deep and subtle observation of the body and mind phenomena
by the technique to stimulate the everywhere of the body from the top of the head to the tips of the toes with the least
easy yogic techniques. So, it is very valuable program to practice throughout one's lifetime for the professional yogis
and meditators as well as for the common people who want to live healthy life, because it is very eminent not only
in maintaining the perfect health of the body, but also in realizing the full liberation from the mind, body phenomena
(enlightenment / emancipation). Therefore, we exhort to as many people to practice this program.
