I am honored to be one of the teacher trainers in the 500 hr TT. I have been the representative ISHTA teacher in Scandinavia since 2010 and helped ISHTA grow a stronger prescence in Northern Europe. For me ISHTA is the perfect blend of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda techniques and fits the students who are out to create a strong spiritual yoga practice and to incorporate yoga as a model for their lifestyle.

What is ISHTA Yoga?
ISHTA stands for the Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda; understanding more about these three key sciences of yoga will assist us in developing and sculpting the best yoga practice for each of us.
Hatha relates to the physical body. In practicing a sequence of asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques), we start to open the body’s channels so that energy can flow freely and we can begin to enjoy the feeling of bringing the body back into balance.
Tantra comes from the root words tanoti (”expansion”) and trayati (”liberation”). In ISHTA, tantra refers to the oneness between the individual and the universe (often likened to a drop of water in the ocean), and the ability to expand and liberate the individual consciousness in order to connect to our inherent divinity. We practice tantra by using breathing and meditative techniques that expand our awareness of the more subtle aspects of being.
Ayurveda is the science of life; specifically, what keeps us alive. Prana is the body’s life force and it is uniquely manifested in every individual. If we can understand how prana interacts with five key elements (air, space, fire, water, and earth), then we can begin to understand our body’s constitution. Knowing what makes us tick and, importantly, what doesn’t, is how Ayurveda restores balance and ultimately brings us back to optimal health and well-being.
An ISHTA class brings together asana to stretch, strengthen, balance, and release the physical body; pranayama with visualization to still and quiet the mind; and meditation to expand our awareness, with the goal of releasing energy and liberating consciousness.
