The term 'Hatha Yoga' is a generic one, and it covers all styles of physical yoga such as Astanga, Viniyoga, Iyengar, and Sivananda Yoga. Here at the Himalayan Institute our teachers' backgrounds and approaches differ slightly, but they are all influenced by the Himalayan practice of Hatha Yoga as taught by Swami Rama. Yoga postures are a remedy for the whole person. They promote health and energy. There is no achievement level or competition. Each person works within their own capacity, and it is for this reason that yoga is beneficial to all regardless of age, gender, body shape or previous experience.

Meditation involves a type of inner attention that is quiet, concentrated, and at the same time relaxed.
Testimonial. “I have been attending classes at the Himalayan Institute for many years, starting as a novice in the beginner’s class. Some 20 years later I am doing 2 yoga classes a week and attending the Meditation/philosophy classes. Living a busy and hectic life, I can honestly say that my attitude to difficulties and stressful situations has completely changed. I have learnt how to relax and breathe properly. I know how to look after my body and live for the moment. Problems don’t go away but being able to approach them with a calm mind certainly makes them smaller”. Joanna Russell. Business owner.
