What is Ashaya Yoga?

Todd from Ashaya Yoga

Align Your Body. Awaken Your Heart.

Ashaya Yoga (AY) is the alignment of body, mind, and heart with your true self. A synthesis of decades of transformational yoga and meditation practices from both Eastern and Western disciplines, it blends precise, therapeutic alignment techniques with empowering teachings of Tantra philosophy and spirituality.

AY is the path of radical affirmation. It’s learning how to say “yes” to life and abide in the truth that everything in life is for your awakening. AY builds strength, balance, flexibility, and heals chronic pain. More than a “yoga workout,” it supports the harmony and interconnection of body, mind, heart, and spirit, that makes you strong, confident, peaceful, openhearted, and ready to engage with life wholeheartedly. Off the mat, it inspires the best version of you and develops your capacity to meet life’s challenges with poise and grace.

What Does the Word Ashaya Mean?

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.

“I am the Self that dwells in all beings. I am the Self in the place where you stand (ashaya sthiti). I am the place where you stand for shelter.”
Bhagavad Gita, 10:20

What is Ashaya Yoga’s Vision?

AY’s vision is to serve the evolution of consciousness by increasing self-awareness, freedom, and wholeness. Through building a community that provides safety, authenticity, and opportunities for self-expression, AY creates a feeling of profound belonging and love in service to a bigger purpose.
