Himalayan Tradition

Our Teaching Mission

The essence of the Institute’s teaching mission flows from the timeless message of the Himalayan Masters. Their message is one of self realization—to first become aware of the reality within ourselves, and to build a bridge between our inner and outer worlds. This inner journey of self discovery has the capacity to grant us freedom from all fears, propel our transformation and empowerment, and lead us to the pinnacle of self-realization.

Our teaching mission expresses a rich body of experiential wisdom:

  • Classical hatha yoga practice and meditation as embodied in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
  • Source wisdom and sacred texts of the Tradition including the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, and Tantric texts
  • The study and practice of mantra
  • Yoga philosophy and worldview enriched by Sankhya, Vedanta and Tantric philosophies
  • The study and practice of Tantra through rituals, pranayama, hatha yoga, and kundalini yoga
  • Healing traditions inspired by yoga and Ayurveda.
