Ashaya (AH-shy-ah) is a Sanskrit word that means, “abode of the heart.” The word also refers to the heart as a place
of refuge, a sanctuary of the deepest aspects of the Self. Like a safe haven within, it is a protective harbor where we anchor the most treasured parts of the Self.
Ashaya Yoga™ aligns body, mind, and heart to facilitate the awakening of our inherent creative potential as human beings. The cornerstone for this spiritual growth is the daily practice of yoga, pranayama, and meditation.
The mission of Ashaya Yoga™ is to serve the evolution of consciousness on the planet and increase self-awareness, wholeness, healing, and freedom. Ashaya Yoga™ places great importance on high standards of excellence, integrity, and authenticity while maintaining a nurturing, lifelong practice filled with discovery.
