It is an innovative yogic system that synthesizes techniques of Hatha, Raja, Mantra, and Kundalini Yoga to bring about rapid transformation. His signature system is inspired by Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. In depth focus of asanas, the chakras, mantras, and breathing and meditation techniques gives you the knowledge you need to purify your body, stabilise your emotions, focus your mind, and increase your spiritual well-being. Transformational Yoga goes far beyond just physical exercise. While offering a complete approach to well-being, Transformational Yoga takes into account physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of health. It functions on a deeper level to stimulate kundalini energy to move up through the chakras, purifying and awakening the pure body.
