Heart of Yoga is ha-tha vinyasa yoga in the direct teaching lineage of the founder of modern yoga Professor T. Krishnamacharya, his son TKV Desikachar, and Mark Whitwell.

Based on developing an authentic yoga practice for the individual, the practice honors the unique needs of each person. 

Ha-tha means the merging of the sun and moon, male and female, and is a purification and re-balancing practice where breath and body movement are one. The practice includes Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises which move, activate and increase Prana (vital energy), Bandha, Meditation, Relaxation and Chanting.

The principles of Krishnamacharya as communicated by Mark Whitwell are included in each step of practice, as shown below.
