    Friday 5:30-9:30  Sat & Sun 8am-5pm

     

    Akhanda Yoga is the universal path of yoga preserved in it’s holistic form, as a science of self-realization and inner balance.  Akhanda means whole and indivisible, and refers to both our innermost nature, and the complete tradition of yoga. In the west yoga is often diluted to be made purely physical, ignoring the other four sheaths of consciousness in form, the Koshas. Instead striving primarily for physical strength and balance, Akhanda yoga informs us how to absorb and contain vital life force energy in our physical and subtle bodies. This holistic style was founded by Himalayan Master and Teacher, Yogrishi Vishvketu. Asana, pranayama, mantra, philosophy, meditation and joy and incorporated into each practice.
