About

The Akasha Yoga Academy is a registered and certified member of the international Yoga Alliance. The curriculum of our Teacher Training Courses is approved by Yoga Alliance, and the primary instructors are accredited as Experienced Registered Yoga Teachers (E-RYT-200).

Akasha means space, Yoga refers to the spiritual union, and an Academy is a place for the transmission of wisdom. The Sanskrit word Akasha also means radiance, and refers to the seat of the transcendental Self in the luminous sphere of the Spiritual Heart.

In profound meditations the mind melts into a shining inner space of pure Awareness, and dissolves in the all-pervading Existence of chit-akasha. Akasha also refers to Ether, the most refined of the five classical elements, which is similar to Aristotle’s Quintessence.

The Sanskrit term Yoga means to yoke or to unite, and refers to the union of individual and universe. One of the first references to Yoga as a practice for spiritual Awakening can be found in the Taittiriya Upanishad (around 500 BC).

An Academy is an educational community of practitioners, scholars, and students committed to the development and transmission of knowledge. The Greek term “Akademia” refers to a sacred place in which the ancient philosopher Plato (428–347 BC) transmitted his profound teachings.
