Hatha Yoga includes many practices to help with purification including asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing practices), shatkarmas (cleansing practices). Here at Anahata we also include practices from the other branches of yoga including meditation (mental purification), mantra chanting (using sound vibration), havan (fire ceremony for letting go of the old and welcoming in the new), kirtan (for emotional harmonizing) and karma yoga (for purifying our actions).

Alongside the practices of traditional Hatha Yoga, gain modern nutritional tools and knowledge to support healthy eating, strong digestive powers and balanced body systems and mental states.
