WHAT SETS US APART

Hariharalaya offers a full immersion in Yoga as a way of life. Over the last 11 years, we have crafted a powerful rhythm and sacred space for healing and awakening. Our Digital Detox allows you to free yourself from distractions and open your heart to the creativity and beauty of the present moment. Daily periods of silence help to deepen your connection with your true Self and listen to the wisdom of life.
At Hariharalaya, we approach yoga as the science and art of life. It is a path for self mastery, awakening your body, heart and mind and tuning yourself with life. We embrace an integral path of body, heart and mind through an integrated practice of asana, breathing, meditation, study, silence, creativity, nature and more.

Integral Yoga = Asana + Pranayama + Meditation
INTEGRAL YOGA IS
  • A journey of self empowerment and lifelong learning
  • The process of accessing and living with creativity and wisdom
  • A healthy rhythm and deep connection with the present moment
  • A relationship with nature and the wisdom of life
  • A personal journey of awakening
  • Basic hygiene for your body, heart and mind
  • A way of life
Integral Yoga is not just…
  • A physical workout
  • A popularity contest or fashion show
  • What happens on the yoga mat
  • A performance or competition
  • About strength and physical flexibility
TRADITIONAL HATHA YOGA
  • Simple postures held for extended time with a focus on breath, awareness 
    and grounding in order to cleanse your physical, emotional and mental 
    bodies, release blockages and cultivate will power and inner strength by
    working through resistance.

  • Each posture is a meditation on sensation, breath and balance.

  • Each posture is an opportunity to cultivate a sense of ease (sukha) and 
    stability (sthira) to carry with you in your daily life.

  • Each posture is followed by time for awareness and integration to cultivate 
    a deep sense of presence and aliveness.

  • With each posture, you are charging your body, heart and mind with light 
    (prana), producing good chemicals and releasing toxins and the heaviness 
    of the past.

  • Our practice are both accessible and challenging for all ages and 
    levels of experience.

Traditional Pranayama (Breathwork)
  • Pranayama (breathwork) is key to unlocking the flow of life within your body, heart and mind.

  • By nourishing yourself with prana (life, light, energy) each day, then your body, heart and mind  becomes alive like a flourishing garden.

  • Cultivate a deeper relationship with your breath in order to balance your thoughts and emotions. The breath is the ultimate medicine.

  • We work with a system of 3 powerful breathing techniques before meditation to help balance your nervous system and the subtle pressure within, to allow you to enter into deep meditation.

  • These techniques are deeply cleansing and purifying. They help to balance your body, heart and mind, activate your chakras and awaken your inner power.

Traditional Sitting Meditation
  • Meditation is a process of deep cleaning and healing through the stillness of Being and not doing.

  • Cultivate a sense of relaxation and one pointed concentration. 
    Dive beneath the surface of your thoughts and enter into a deep state of Being.

  • Layer by layer, dissolve your body, heart and mind back into pure light.

  • Meditation is a fire to purify yourself and release the heaviness of the past in order to come into the wisdom of the present moment and awaken your intuition.
