Universal Yoga is a multi-faceted system of yogic methodology representing the essential approaches to yoga as a spiritual science, unifying all disciplines that can be used to achieve any broad or specific yogic goal. Universal Yoga is suitable for any practitioner seeking to be conscious of all behaviors and patterns within themselves and the surrounding environment for the benefit of beings everywhere, striving for total karmic liberation from conditioned forms of existence. Its goal is to create strength, balance and unification of all koshas (shells), chakras (energetic centers), and rasas (emotions), through the practice of asanas, pranayamas, mudras, bandhas, visualizations (yantrayana), and chantings (mantrayana).
Created by my teacher, Dorje Andrey Lappa, it is one of the most complete system of yoga incorporating all 8 Limbs of Raja Yoga. This practice is deeply rooted in Tantrayana practices of Hinduism and Buddhism. Join me for Cross-mat Mandala Yoga practices at Hot Yoga for Life.
