WHAT IS UNIVERSAL YOGA?
Universal Yoga is a multi-faceted system of techniques used intelligently for the purpose of furthering ones spiritual growth. The system is based on the concept of the mayakoshas or layers of being, that include the physical, energetic, emotional, mental, intellectual, bliss, fluctuating mind and karmic layers.
The purpose of this system is to provide balance between the within each and between the practitioner and the outside world.
Andrey Lappa integrated yogic philosophy and physical asana with monastic techniques and codified them into a logical system that can be used by anyone living in the secular world.
It is a life-transforming system that brings about physical health, emotional stability and mental clarity.
Universal Yoga is a life-transforming learning system that creates better physical health, wellness, emotional stability and mental clarity. The ultimate aim is the liberation and unification of ourselves as a whole. Created and taught by the world-renowned Andrey Lappa, the Universal Yoga curriculum shows the extreme depth of a seasoned master. However, it is delivered in a logical system that can be used by anyone who is dedicated to exploring their full yoga potential.
The Universal Yoga Method integrates all systems of yoga, empowering you with the confidence and skills necessary to inspire your students. This style unites several existing classic lineages, in-particular Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa, integrated with yogic philosophy, physical asana and monastic techniques. It also provides a deeper understanding of how each kosha or ‘shell’ interconnects with the others, providing total balance and unification of self.
Students will take part in a highly intensive program split into three sections. Part 1 sets the foundation, concentrating mostly on asana. Part 2 moves deeper into Vinyasa, yogic history, philosophy and meditation. Part 3 puts extra focus on energy, kundalini and consciousness. The core benefit of this method lies in adapting to continuous change, so your practice becomes incredibly powerful based on whatever your current motivations, goals and perspective are.
With over 40 years dedicated to the practice, including studying with the famous Iyengar, Andrey Lappa is one of the world’s most qualified, influential and professional yoga teachers. At the core of his experience is a life spent traveling through places like Mongolia, India, Nepal and homeland Ukraine, continually developing his craft in a variety of Eastern traditions. His books “Dynamic Practices in Classical Yoga” and “Tradition of Unification” bring together the best of all the classic styles of yoga, blending them into a set of key universal teachings.
Famous for his adjustments and sequencing, Will Lau always shares yoga with unconditional love for all practitioners, with a smile and with sense of humor to the fore. Vigorous in his style, tender in his words, Will offers a class that pushes students to their limits while also freeing their hearts and ultimately stilling their minds. Will passionately serves yogis, especially in Asia where he teaches in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Taiwan, and annually in the Asia Yoga Conference since 2011.
