What is Amrita Yoga?

Amrita Yoga offers a holistic approach to asana practice uniquely imbued with awareness and heart-centered intention. Designed to enable a deep journey within, it teaches the art of tuning to one's true being and connecting with one's own essence.

Intention for Practitioners

Amrita Yoga intends to inspire practitioners to let go of both the past and future in order to experience the present moment fully.
