Style of Yoga
Yoga Awareness Hawaii offers the authentic Vedic teaching of Raja Yoga by Patanjali as taught through the Krishnamacharya-Desikachar lineage. The teachings are universal in application and are non-sectarian and non-religious. Raja Yoga literally means to 'shine the mind' and strengthen the body. There are three methods of sadhana (practice):
1. Kriya Yoga, which is developing healthy action and attitude in your practice.
2. Ashtanga Yoga, which is to purify and strengthen your body and mind.
3. Samkhya Yoga, which is your self-understanding and awareness.
