Hridaya Yoga Teachings

The Foundation of the Practice

Traditional Teachings Accessible to All

The Hridaya Yoga teachings exist to guide people to a direct experience of their innermost Self, the Heart. Hridaya is a spiritual path developed by Sahajananda based on traditional spiritual principles from Classical Yoga, Advaita Vedanta, Tantra, and Kashmir Shaivism. Insights from Sufism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Taoism further enhance the teachings. 

The Hridaya Yoga practice allows you to live in the very “core” of existence, feel the heartbeat of life, and know the eternal dimension of the Present Moment intuitively. Through Hatha Yoga, meditation, and techniques for cultivating awareness in daily life, you begin to aspire to live in the Heart and experience God for yourself, beyond any conceptual or religious definitions.
