  • Intensive Hridaya Hatha Yoga Workshops

      • We will study the fundamental principles of Hridaya Yoga and we’ll introduce the practice of this profound esoteric Yoga system.
      • Hridaya Hatha Yoga creates the condition for deep relaxation and for opening to realize the “transfiguration” of the body itself.
      • During the practice of Hatha Yoga, the physical asanas combine with Advaita, the vision of non-duality.
      • Asanas are performed while holding the inner spiritual attitudes recommended in traditional texts of Tantra and Shaivism, including Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, Spanda Karika, Shiva Sutra, etc.
