Akhanda Yoga

Akhanda Yoga- Uniting Body, Mind, and Spirit

Regardless of what you see or hear Yoga is for everyone- whether you are young or old, big or small, fit or unfit. Yoga offers many adaptable postures as well as modifications for those of you who may not be very flexible or are suffering from an aliment or injury. Yoga is about finding balance and uniting your Body, Mind and Soul, once you have achieved this in your yoga practice you can carry it into your daily lives, creating peace and harmony!

Namaste (the divine light in me meets and greets the divine light in you)

Akhanda Yoga is the name that my yoga teacher, Yogi Vishvketu and Chetana Panwar choose to describe the type of Yoga that they teach. Akhanda Yoga is a blend of the six traditional paths of Yoga, in which every “type or kind” of Yoga originated from.

Hatha Yoga- techniques in kriya, asana, bandha, pranayama, mudra, and meditation
Jana Yoga- Vedanta philosophy, and the concept of oneness as the essential reality of the universe
Raja/ Ashtanga Yoga- Patanjli’s Yoga Sutras: mindfulness, meditation, and the eight- fold path
Mantra Yoga- the use of Vedic manatras for clarity and peace.
Bhakti Yoga- kiirtan chanting, contemplation of devotional aphorisms and the attitude of surrender
Karma Yoga- discernment of right action, and responsive versus reactive action.

In level one of Akhanda Yoga we will be learning the basic principles of breath, movement, alignment, and relaxation. Students will become aware of tightness they carry in the body and into asana (posture) practice. They will begin to breath and move into a state of relaxation. This level aims to balance flexibility and strength, cleanse the body and help the practitioner to attain a natural state of health. It also evokes the physical and energetic levels of awareness.


By combining Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing techniques), Mantra (singing), and Meditation- Akhanda Yoga will surely leave you feeling balanced in Body, Mind and Spirit. Take control over your emotions by learning various Pranayama techniques. Feel strong inside and out through Asana practice. Acquire a sense of Oneness and be filled with love and joy through the use of Mantra. Tame your mind, improve concentration and bring peace and clarity through Meditation.


Om Shanti (Om peace)
