Detailed Knowledge

We are unique in offering you the advantage of knowing how Hatha Yoga is understood in the Hindu context and at the same time analysing its paradigm in post-modern terms. Yogic techniques are being increasingly used in psychological therapies. Neuroscience research suggests that body-based practices increase neuroplasticity and improve emotional regulation. Yogic techniques offer both improved mindfulness and affective regulation making it a perfect complement to psychological work. As a holistic practice yoga attends to mind, body, behaviour and social interaction, thereby offering a biopsychosocial approach that nicely aligns with a growing appreciation that well being requires attention to all aspects of the person.


"Respectful of the tradition and demanding with their method; however, in addition to philosophy, history, anatomy and a lot of technique, they teach you to teach"

"Without doubt a challenge, but worth the effort!"

Mercedes Salaverry/ Julio 2019

Wes (Shanmugananda) maintains a multi-vocal interpretation of the spiritual traditions while honouring their uniqueness. His views can be provocative but they are always enlightening. Wes emphasizes the importance of understanding the Yoga tradition and respecting the plurality of its world views. The approach is therefore not dogmatic but pluralistic.
