Our Philosophy

Deepening your practice and understanding of conscious breathing helps to harmonize your
personal energy.

We believe that a practice you can apply anywhere, at any time, is a powerful tool for improving the quality of your everyday life. Our goal is to provide our students with a way to improve their lives that can be achieved by almost everyone, in just 15 minutes a day.

Our system is firmly rooted in the teachings and knowledge of the ancient Tibetan tradition of Yantra Yoga, one of the oldest recorded systems of yoga in the world. These centuries of
experience and understanding shape our approach to teaching.
