TRANSFORMATIONAL YOGA®

In depth focus of asanas, the chakras, mantras, and breathing and meditation techniques gives you the knowledge you need to purify your body, stabilise your emotions, focus your mind, and increase your spiritual well-being.

Transformational Yoga goes far beyond just physical exercise. While offering a complete approach to well-being, Transformational Yoga takes into account physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of health. It functions on a deeper level to stimulate kundalini energy to move up through the chakras, purifying and awakening the pure body.

We focus on creating full awareness of each of our five bodies.

Physical body | Prana body | Mental body | Psychic body | Spiritual body. Each body relates to one of the 5 Kosha’s: Annamya (physical) , Pranamaya (vital), Manomaya (mental), Vignanmaya (wisdom) and Anandamaya Kosha (bliss).

In doing so we are able to clear blockages and purify our bodies: We learn about the seven chakras, and their relationships to our five bodies, whilst identifying and clearing blockages in the chakras.

Transformational Yoga is an integral approach to physical health, emotional balance, and mental and spiritual clarity founded and created by Swami Vidyanand, a renowned yoga master.

  • Asana: Our asana sequences are are suitable for everyone from beginners to advanced and offer a holistic approach to health, while focusing on chakra activation, back strengthening, ab strengthening and a standing series.

  • Pranayama: Discover the healing potential of your breath. Breathing techniques are an essential component of hatha yoga. Benefits include improved concentration, more energy, deeper sleep, and reduced stress levels. Not only does it feed the brain, but revitalises the body, since breath is the bridge between the body and the mind.

  • Mantra: Mantra chanting generates vibrations which are fundamental tools for altering the psyche, and producing a tranquil and balanced mind. In yogic practices, the growth of our awareness progresses with the help of these vibrations. By cleansing our minds with mantras, decision making becomes clearer, observation power is awakened; purification leads to improved concentration and a calm focused mind.

  • Meditation: Meditation, Yoga Nidra, and other relaxation techniques are included in Transformational Yoga practice in order for us to experience our pure natures, in which our egos dissolve and we find inner silence.
