Yoga Style

Our style of yoga comes from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and is influenced by the alignment principles of Anusara Yoga. We use the fundamentals of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga to create the flow and dynamics we need to purify our body, mind and soul. We combine this with the Anusara Yoga “Principles of Alignment” to give our yoga practice the refinement and beauty it needs to truly express the heart and better understand our true selves


Our Course (YTTC) is divided into three parts: In the first cycle we will concentrate on the fundamentals of yoga practice, which is the philosophical aspect as well as the adjustments that will help us to refine our practice. The second part is about applying the alignment techniques that we learned during the first cycle and developing our practice. The third part is about integrating all this into the practice and also developing a teaching methodology and settings. Students begin to integrate teaching with their personal practice. And so, personal practice and teaching will become more meaningful and relevant to the understanding of yoga.

Join us in one the few Yoga Ashrams that you find outside of India which maintains the Vedic traditions and teacher student lineage. Inspired by Mystical India and daily programs of Kirtan (Mantra Musical Meditation) and Vedic Philosophy taught by our Teacher who has studied and practiced for over 30 years.
