Akhanda Yoga 101: Intro to Holistic Yoga

Akhanda means whole and indivisible. 


Akhanda Yoga, developed by Himalayan master Yogrishi Vishvketu, PhD, offers a holistic toolkit to bring forward ancient wisdom for a modern age.

The Akhanda Yoga approach emphasizes a balanced class including a full repertoire of yoga techniques. All Akhanda Yoga classes are structured systematically yet artfully, to align the physical, energetic, mental/emotional and intuitive self through the five elements of practice and the five energetic principles:

Five Akhanda Elements of Practice

  •  Movement (Annamaya Kosha)
  • Breathing (Pranayamaya Kosha)
  • Sound-work (Manomaya Kosha)
  • Meditation (Vijanamaya Kosha)
  • Yogic Wisdom (Anandamaya Kosha)

  Five Akhanda Energetic Principles

  • Grounding (Apana Prana)
  • Uplifting (Pran Prana)
  • Centering (Samana Prana)
  • Expansion (Vyana Prana)
  • Connection to the Whole (Udana & Cosmic Pran)

Jackie Howard has been a student of Vishva-ji’s for over ten years, and she is excited to share the principles, practice and history of this rich tradition. Individual, group and partner work will be integrated throughout the class as well as philosophy & discussion. All are welcome to attend, and no previous yoga experience is necessary.
