An exploration of movement that invites us into the recognition of a total honesty and openness with what is. Its a dance, a love affair, an intimacy that melts you from the inside. A celebration, a learning, an integration and a perfection remembered.

The sharings of Swami Asokananda
Swami Asokananda, a monk since 1975, is one of Integral Yoga’s® (IY) foremost teachers—known for his warmth, intelligence, and good humor. His teaching comes out of his own practice and experience while absorbing the wisdom of his Guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda.
While he enjoys sharing the practical wisdom of yogic philosophy (especially the great Indian scripture, the Bhagavad Gita), he also loves his practice of Hatha Yoga. He is one of Yogaville’s primary instructors for Intermediate and Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Trainings.
He presently serves as president of the IY Institute in New York City. Before this position, he served as the President of Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville and Integral Yoga International.
‘Soul and Subjectivity’ (Meditation / Tantric Yoga)
Where do You exist? What is your essence and who is aware of it?
With a radical new hypothesis as our map, these meditative explorations will investigate the key centres of the soul.
These classes will include mindful, somatic asana, pranayama, mudra and bandha and culminate in sitting meditation and / or yoga nidra.
I am trained in classical tantric yoga – Satyananda (4 month residential yogic studies certificate training) / Agama (500 hr TTC + CPD) / Hridaya (numerous silent retreats) and diverse meditation systems including yogic, Buddhist and non-denominational methodologies.
My main teacher is Adyashanti and as well as his retreats and satsangs, I have participated in long Zen style meditation retreats and numerous personal retreats in various continents.
For around twenty years my spiritual path has led me to live an almost exclusively nomadic life; studying with spiritual teachers, receiving darshan from masters, working therapeutically with shadow and trauma and applying myself to the path of healing and awakening.
My teachings are directed primarily towards Chit Shakti Vidya. I am a teacher of both meditative self-enquiry rooted in the non-dual Shaivic traditions and embodied, tantric yoga spanning from cleansing kriyas to deep pratyahara techniques. My classes include asana, pranayama, mudra and bandha focussing on sensate somatic insight and inner states of consciousness.
Using the technique of yoga nidra I guide guru pujas, healing and soul retrieval journeys drawing from the wisdom of the shamanic traditions of both the east and the west.
My classes are suited to practitioners of all levels.

From a very young age, Lorraine was fascinated by the beauty of movement and music. Her childhood was spent exploring the body through gymnastics, ice skating and different styles of dance. In her early twenties, a strong calling to the path of Yoga became the catalyst for many deeper realisations in her life and she left everything behind to follow this call.
She has now been a dedicated Yogini and lover of Truth for more than a couple of decades. She specializes in offering an insightful feminine way of practising Yoga bringing forth her love of Tantra and Kashmir Shaivism. She has also dedicated many years to the study of Jnana (Non Duality), Bhakti (Devotion) as well as Traditional Hatha Yoga which has led her to discover the depths of the Yogic practice, understanding the beauty of the fluid form while investigating the more subtle layers that exist within us. Ultimately pointing to what lies beyond which is the true meaning of Yoga. Union. Oneness. Love.
Her classes are a journey of who we are on every level from the physical to the beyond all shared with a healthy dose of humour and an open heart.
