Dedicated to Excellence in the Investigation of Body-Mind Approaches to Yoga
The main focus of the yoga tradition is the personal journey of self exploration, discovery and healing. From a common trunk rooted in the desire for freedom, it branched in many directions, flowering into a multitude of insights and revelations about life.
The Centre embodies this philosophy, supporting deep personal investigation with current learnings and technologies. Throughout history the yoga tradition has honoured the past and transcended its limitations at the same time.
Our specialist teachers follow the latest investigations in the fields of movement, body-mind centering and yoga therapeutics. They include the natural sciences, alongside in-depth studies of Patanjali’s Sutras, Buddhist teachings and the Bhagavad Gita.
Yoga offers personal experience and personal accountability. Our teachers support students in their own explorations and teaching styles, with humour, wisdom and passion, with training, mentoring, meditation and private tuition.
