This program manifested so that the modern student and teacher can integrate yogic philosophy where it counts — living fully!

Whether your goal is to teach yoga or authentically integrate your studies into the day to day, we are glad you’re here!

Hathavidya is an inclusive yogic science comprised of principles that purify, empower and uplift the spirit toward creating clarity and elevating the human experience.

What does all that mean?

Hathavidya makes traditional yoga accessible and applicable in the modern world.

By utilizing the in-depth development of various lineages within hatha and siddha, the focus is on knowledge and how the tools work for you.

Although there is a growing number of trainings in yoga communities, Hathavidya offers programs to communicate profound lessons, a larger knowledge base and a dedicated learning environment for you.

Certification is easy to come by; true knowledge shapes your life.
