From the Founder

What makes hatha yoga unique and different from the many other paths of yoga is it’s strong emphasis on pranavidya—the experience, cultivation and control of life-force energy. The first goal of pranavidya is to awaken and cultivate our prana through breathing techniques and yoga poses. Once we are aware of our awakened life force energy we can then work towards knowing the quality of our prana and to understanding what practices and techniques create the specific energetic patterns called gunas. The final goal of pranavidya is to skillfully shift away from the energy patterns of tamas (darkness, inertia) or rajas (activity, change) and move into sattva guna to experience stillness, peace, purity, wisdom, balance and harmony.
