Learn about the paths of Yoga.

Yoga is a path, practice, and the end goal leading us to an absolute union of the Self with the Divine Self, which in the beginning can be understood as total harmony between body, mind and spirit. Through the Sadhana of Asana, Mudra, Bandha, Pranayama, Jnana Yoga Kriyas and Yogic attitude, one can align and merge with and within the universal energy of Param-Shiva.

According to Hinduism, and traditional Yoga Schools, Lord Shiva is considered the Yogeshwar (Master of Yoga), Parma-Pita (founder of Yoga), Adi-Yoga-Guru and Siddha (Ancient or first practitioner, founder and Master of Yoga). Shiva-Shamhita and Vijnana Bhairava Tantra are two of the most authentic Tantra and Yoga texts, each recorded as a dialogue between Lord Shiva and his wife Shakti or Parwati.

Vijnana Bhairava Tantra details 112 techniques of Dharna or subtle energy visualisations to attain absolute harmony with the potential self and subtle energies to enter into the universal and transcendental state. Vijnana Bhairava Tantra is considered one of the highest, most knowledgeable and most exquisite Shastras (sacred texts) in Tantra Yoga.

The word “Tantra” is a Sanskrit term which means to weave or expand. Tantra comes from two Sanskrita roots - ‘Tan’ means body, and ‘tra’ means tool. Tantra uses the body as a divine tool or instrument to attain union with the Supreme Consciousness of Param-Shiva.
