Calm Energy Yoga

Calm Energy Yoga describes a state of being -

  • in which poise and clarity are the seamless connection between mind and body
  • and groundedness the companion of a light heart.

Calm Energy Yoga is also a method of practice -

  • of asana, pranayama and meditation
  • enriched by reference to traditions and imagery expressed in the arts, philosophy and cultures of yoga .

Asana practice is taught primarily in the Iyengar style drawing upon Astanga, Sivananda and the learning of individual teachers in India.


What makes Calm Energy Yoga different?

Calm Energy Yoga teaches an understanding of yoga - both of the physiology of the body and the union and integration of the mind, body and spirit.

It is with the purpose, meaning and rasa (essence) of a pose, breathing technique or meditation that the intellect, visual mind, breath and the body seek to become absorbed and integrated.

Calm Energy Yoga is exceptional in making central to its teaching, a considered and expanded vision of how the yoga being practiced is informed by its cultural and intellectual history in its home country of India. Yoga practices are diversifying hugely as teaching translocates to other parts of the world. Calm Energy Yoga teaching accords to the individual and setting and it makes the sources of yoga coherent. It communicates a rich experience: a yoga practice both relevant and contextualised by its inheritance.

Hilary is currently researching individual postures that have become 'classics' in modern yoga, examining the process the yogi passes through from holding a pose as an architectural structure to absorb and integrate its multiple layers of meaning, visual and spiritual elements. Hilary brings these aspects, often lost in current yoga teaching, into her Calm Energy Yoga practice.
