What is Universal Yoga?

Universal Yoga is a multi-faceted yoga system with the goal of spiritual growth and liberation. To achieve this goal, Universal Yoga employs traditional yogic methods and techniques, from the rich philosophical heritage of Hinduism, Buddhism, Tantra, and combines with modern science. The system is suitable for any practitioner seeking to become conscious of and liberated from their behaviors and individual patterns. This individual evolution is used to influence change within and then in the individual's surrounding environment. The goal of this micro- and macro-change is to inspire all beings towards karmic liberation: enlightenment. Universal Yoga is complex, but at the same time very simple.
