After over twelve years of self-study, continuous practice and deep devotion, Ganga Puri has developed his original yoga style he calls “āyāsa vinyāsa YogAnga abhyāsa“, a seven limbed hatha yoga practice which includes: Shatkarma, Asana, Mudra, Pratyahara, Pranayama, Dhyaan and Samadhi as mentioned in ancient scripture. Designed to instil enthusiasm and discipline in aspiring yogis, as well as inspiration to maintain one’s own self-practice, Ganga’s yoga sessions bring precise alignment of the physical body, awareness of the breath as well as the prana, clarity to the mind, balance of the three gunas as well as the male/female energies within, opening of the chakras and a heightened connection with the natural and supernatural universe around us.
