Ashtanga Yoga:

ashtanga-yogaAshtanga in Sanskrit means eight limbs, mentioned in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra. This technique of yoga contains harmonising the breath with a succession of postures. This process produces powerful internal heat and a plentiful, cleansing sweat that purifies muscles and organs. The result is enhanced circulation, a nimble and strong body, and a composed mind. Ashtanga Yoga contains different groups of asanas and teachings on vinyasa, drishti, bandhas, mudras, and philosophy. This is a great chance for students to practice and know their level of ability, in a supportive group environment and with the inspiration and guidance of a guru. Ashtanga can be a perfect foundation for home practitioners and also those who want to teach professionally once they know the arrangement of poses.


Hatha Yoga:

According to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, there are eight limbs of yoga. Out of which only one involves postures (asana). Hatha means forceful or determined in Sanskrit. Hatha yoga includes a set of asanas (postures) that are designed to align your body. These postures are designed to line up the physical channels of the body so that energy can easily flow (especially in the spine). The word Hatha is translated as Ha- the Sun which is masculine and Tha- the Moon which is feminine, which in turn represents the balance in nature and also within us all. Through Hatha Yoga we can create balance and unite opposites. Hatha teaches us the balance of strength and flexibility in each pose. It has immense health benefits and is an efficient way to distress. The teachers at Upaya believe, Hatha to be a powerful tool for Self-realization and transformation, teaching them various techniques to master control over the body by skilful breathing and meditation practices.

Rishikesh has spectacular views of jungle-clad hills and is also the confluence of River Ganges and Chandrabhaga. The glorious attraction of Rishikesh is none other than the great River Ganges herself, running rapidly throughout the city. In ancient times, and still today, many yogis, rishis, sages and sannyasis are attracted to Rishikesh to practice yoga in this peaceful location. Since then Rishikesh has been known as the “Place of Sages”.
