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.

The Jaguar Path is a Yoga Alliance Yoga School specializing in the use of the yogic science and philosophy as energy
medicine. Sourcing from yogic and shamanic traditions, this work enables individuals and healers to understand and activate their innate healing power. It accelerates personal empowerment and balance as well as the ability to help others in their healing process.
Weaving the Inca trilogy, Serpent, Jaguar, and Condor, with the yogic approach of Body, Mind, and Spirit, this work is structured to accommodate the healing process and evolution of all three perceptual states; asana for the Body -Serpent, lecture for the Mind -Jaguar, and shamanic journeys for the Soul -Condor.
Yogis and shamans are one and the same; they are men and women who study the human condition and through their practices become their own teachers and healers. The Yogic path as shamanism leads to the understanding of the world as a matrix of energy and offers techniques on how to intervene on the realm of mind, body, and spirit for healing and enhanced perception.
