About Shambhava Yoga®
At a time in America when yoga’s popularity outshines its original purpose, Shambhava Yoga® stands as a living example of timeless teachings in a present-day practice. Whole Yoga believes in, and adheres to the Shambhava style of practice.
Shambhava Yoga® ashrams and affiliate centers (Whole Yoga being one of them!) are run by gifted and dedicated practitioners who use the practice to grow and improve their lives. Each center has been given the blessing of Sri Shambhavananda to pass on the teachings of the lineage under his guidance.
What is different about Shambhava Yoga®?
Shambhava Yoga® encompasses meditation, asana (yoga postures), seva (selfless service) as well as conscious living through these diverse practices. It has a lively, worldwide community that includes ashrams, centers and members who live and love this incredible tradition. Whole Yoga is proud to be part of this community!
Shambhava Yoga Meditation® is rooted in the ancient tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, which sees the entire universe as a manifestation of divine consciousness, or Shiva. Through regular whole-hearted meditation practice, we begin to see this divinity within ourselves and it shines in everything we do.
The practice of Shambhava Yoga Asana® begins with a strong foundation in body awareness and alignment, then moves deeper, allowing you to explore your own personal experience of yoga through inner focus and surrender. Creative hatha and vinyasa approaches make this practice available for beginning through advanced level classes.
Shambhava Yoga Asana® is taught from the heart, not the head. Teachers respond to the energy of the class through intuition, intelligent sequencing, and depth of practice.
