Open Anahata Intention
Tea ceremony at Studio Lijf
Founded by Prana Estu, Open Anahata is dedicated to sharing the Anahata Yoga Tradition including the Five Element Flow purification practice, its unique variations of ashtanga, pancha kosha, hatha, tantra and five element philosophies as well as the self-healing trance practices of yoga nidra and yoga nyasa.
Our aim is to maintain an open, oral tradition connected to nature and the cosmos, transmitted through human and lineage connection and to grow trauma-informed methods of practice, self-inquiry and community on the paths of radical self understanding, kundalini rising and collective evolution.
Our version of Anahata Yoga highlights the inner processing work that is integrated into the practices. We hope to bring more awareness and understanding to the human ability of accessing restorative, healing trance and navigating multiple dimensions of consciousness.
Our dream is to help grow our tradition and contribute to an organic network of Anahata yogis who weave the ancient templates of practices into their unique individual lives, specialties and locations on our sacred earth. And of course, who pass on their knowledge, insights and gifts.
We explore mindful, uncensored ways of connecting through digital technology and prefer to share posts via this website, our newsletter and telegram.
