The Abhaya Method focuses on the return to our natural state by attuning to the architecture of the body, aligned with a free and open breath. The method teaches to deepen awareness while releasing holding and gripping patterns in the body and mind. With the encouragement of the breath, the practitioner is guided toward alignment, healing, and an inherent freedom that lives within them.

Each layer of experience from most physical to most subtle is explored through asana, pranayama, meditation, subtle body techniques, philosophy study, chanting, and community support.

  • Full Spectrum – Integration of Practices; Asana, Breathwork, Therapeutic Anatomy, and empowering Philosophy & Spiritual Study
  • Accessible – relevant and tangible practices
  • Steeped in Tradition – honoring the roots and history of the practice.

“What is a teacher? I’ll tell you: it isn’t someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.”
