What is Akhila Yoga? 

Akhila Yoga Method is a systematic approach to spiritual evolution based on the key principles of classical yoga. Akhila Yoga is an open, organic, ever changing, adaptive, scientific method rooted in Vedic tradion and Wisdom. All facets of practice are explored to create a holistic experience. All classical arsenal of asanas (poses), pranayamas (breath-energy work), mudras (hands, feet and body positions), bandhas (energetic locks) and meditation techniques (sense withdrawal, concentration, absorption…) are used to create a complex web of influences on conciseness to facilitate psychic – emotional state conducive to spiritual development. From class to class practice might change from dynamic to slow-meditative, strength oriented to fluid, playful to focused. Our daily goals in practice change depending on a time of day, season, mental and physical state… etc. - so does the practice. One thing in this Universe is certain – it is CHANGE. And to surf the current of life we need to change alongside with it.

Akhila YOGA encourages:

  • search for truth
  • awareness

Yoga was designed to be a living system that grows on a foundation of simple principles. Most modern students of yoga come to the practice through a specific lineage that was often designed during a unique era and for a certain group of people, with limiting approaches (just meditation, phisical practice or kundalini awakening). For instance, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga was designed for young Indian men. Because of this, the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is very useful for health yang athletic people, and for others, it is unapproachable because of the presence of an injury, weakness, tightness or age related conditions. Another example, Iyengar Yoga was designed for people with injuries or other challenges, and while accessible to most people, may not have the dynamic qualities that a more active practitioner desires. Many of modern styles solely focusing on physical practice, excluding internal practices (meditation, Pranayama) and yogic life style teachings. There are so many ‘styles’ today – each declaring their way is the ‘right way’. We have found it is easy for students to become confused, and go from style to style seeking insight, and often learning contradictory information. This leads to frustration and stagnation in the growth.

  • So which style is right?
  • Why to learn and study Akhila Yoga?
  • Is there a system that includes all the style variations?

Akhila Yoga method is a systematic approach to spiritual evolution based on the key principles of classical yoga. This method embraces a holistic approach to yoga, working on development of all levels of being; physical, energetic, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. We recognizes yoga practice as a method of liberation and Self-realization and empower students with a harmonious, balanced practice aimed at creating the most fertile environment for spiritual evolution.
