Spanda® Yoga Classes

What is Spanda® Yoga?

In Spanda®Yoga, essential yoga principles are drawn from a deep knowledge base of classical yoga science and philosophy, then rendered accessible through modern methods of transmission that are not culturally or religiously bound. This systematic approach allows individuals to investigate their own responses to yoga practice from within a context that integrates eastern and western approaches to human potential. The tradition from which Spanda® Yoga is derived draws upon the complementarities between Yoga (the practical application of Samkhya), Vedanta, and the overlay between Tantra and Kashmir Shaivism.

Spanda® Yoga teachers are trained at the 200-hour and 500-hour levels and eligible for registration with Yoga Alliance at both levels. Look for Spanda Yoga classes in your area!
