Our Approach to Yoga

Who We Are

The Himalayan Institute teaches classical hatha yoga blended with a modern understanding of anatomy, physiology and therapeutics. Our instructors are trained in the physical aspects of yoga practice which emphasize flexibility, strength and alignment while always bearing in mind that the true goal of yoga is something much more profound. Following our time tested method (we have been doing this for over forty years!), we lead our students deeper into working with the energy body (prana, chakras) and the mind. Our style is unique as asana (postures) is only a piece of what we practice and teach. A strong focus is also placed on learning to breath, to relax, to focus the mind and to meditate. The Himalayan Institute’s approach to yoga and our teacher training program is a thoroughly holistic – body, mind, spirit practice.
