इष्टम् ISHTAM
A Yoga and Self Knowledge Immersion

Specialising in knowledge इष्टम् ISHTAM, breaks new ground by revealing the true meaning of yoga hidden in upanishadic (traditional) scriptures. As part of the means of knowledge (called प्रमाण pramana), used by orthodox teachers, John and Rachel find this method of teaching invaluable and hope it will help transform your life and revolutionise the way modern yoga is taught.

इष्टम् ISHTAM includes a creative asana practice with detailed alignment, plus pranayama and meditation techniques to focus the mind and relieve stress.
