Full Description

Teacher and Tradition

Original Hatha-Yoga, as it has been laid down in old scriptures, is a powerful and purely mystic science aiming at awakening hidden forces in human beings to attain self-realization. This ancient discipline is also called Kundalini-Yoga, the core of this archaic Yoga is the mystic serpent power Kundalini, and the practice of Hatha is used to awaken her from her sleep.

Reinhard Gammenthaler is a yoga adept and renowned teacher from Switzerland. Born in 1953, he spent his youth in vast travels in search for true happiness and freedom. His quest for the deeper meaning of life was rewarded when he started to practice Yoga and got in contact with his Guru Swami Dhirendra Brahmachari, an accomplished Yogi of highest caliber, who himself was a successor of the great seer and saint Yogi Shri Maharshi Kartikeya. Reinhard was initiated by his Guru into the authentic yogic tradition called Kundalini-Yoga-Parampara, originating from the teachings of great Yogis such as Svatmarama, Goraksha and Matsyendra.

Reinhard practices Yoga since 1979, during his sadhana he spent long periods in the remote foothills of the Himalayas, where his Guru taught him the secrets of asana, pranayama and mudra and methods to attain states of trance.

In his workshops Reinhard shares his experience of Yoga practice, demonstrates different varieties of Sukshma Vyayama exercises, explains the techniques of shatkarmas (yogic cleansing exercises). Practice aims at purifying the system of nadis (energy channels) and involves a lot of breathing exercises combined with asanas, mudras and bandhas. This approach leads to a deeper understanding of Yoga exercises which main purpose is to reveal the feelings of inner energies. By subtle work with svara (yogic method of directing Prana in the body) the practitioners can literally feel the energy of Prana-Shakti inside of themselves.
