Purna Yoga®

“The way of yoga followed here has a different purpose from others – for its aim is not only to rise out of the ordinary ignorant world-consciousness, but to bring the supramental power of that Divine consciousness down into the ignorance of mind, life and body, to transform them, to manifest the Divine here and create a Divine life in matter.

This is an exceedingly difficult aim and difficult yoga; to many or most it will seem impossible.”

-Sri Aurobindo

“Purna” means “complete,” and Purna Yoga® distills and integrates the vast aspects of yoga into an invaluable set of tools for transformation and healing.  It offers more than just exercise. . . because you are more than just a body.

lotus handsYou have a body, but you also have aspirations, dreams, relationships, careers, finances, and many other facets of your life.

World-renowned yoga-asana master Aadil Palkhivala and renowned meditation and Kundalini master Savitri envisioned a system that nurtures the whole you to help you feel more alive and to shine your light into the world.

They founded Purna Yoga to fulfill that dream.

Welcome Home

As Sri Aurobindo said, “All life is yoga.” May you discover the many ways in which Purna Yoga™ says “Welcome Home,” offering you tools, techniques and wisdom for feeling at home in your body, and at home with your spirit, for this is the true gift of yoga.  -Savitri and Aadil

When we feel lost, sad, confused, stuck, stiff, or are in pain, our bodies are telling us that we have lost contact with the most important part of us, our spirit. Therefore, we must use our breath, movements, thoughts and feelings to welcome our spirit into our first and most important physical home, our bodies. Purna Yoga teaches the mind, the body, and the emotions how to be at home with the spirit. Purna Yoga is the art of loving yourself by living from the heart.
